Poland's teenage girls will get their chance in this year's International Elite Model Look competition March 15-16. A website was launched in February inviting girls to castings in Poland's 10 largest cities.

Elite Model Look Polska finalists will be invited to photo shoots for famous fashion magazines and shows by top designers in Paris, Rome and Milan. This year's winners will be selected from over 15,000 contestants. As well as a chance at a modeling career, Polish finalists will qualify for the world finals. First prize this year is a 1-million-euro contract to work with some of the world's most renowned fashion houses.

The competition is one of the most prestigious events in the modeling world. It has been held in over 50 countries for 25 years (six years in Poland), and has judged around 7 million contestants. Elite is the world's largest and most highly regarded modeling agency. Many top models, including Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista, have been given their start by Elita.

The 2008 Elite Model Look competition is adopting last year's formula except the minimum age is now 15. There will be castings, semi-finals and regional finals to get through before reaching the Grand Finale. Castings will be held at 10 Carrefour shopping centers March 15-16. The jury, comprising professional talent scouts from Elite International, will select 20 candidates from each city. These will then present themselves at one-day fashion shows. Before entering the Grand Finale, winners will receive modeling training from the Elite Model School where they will be assisted by make-up artists, photographers, stylists and choreographers.
