We're going on a hunt
The New Paper New Face's tradition of the street hunt will start at Bugis+ tomorrow.
Last year's top 20 contestants will be looking for 10 girls to go straight to Round 2 of the New Paper New Face 2014.
These 10 girls will be joined by those chosen over social media and at the walk-in auditions on June 14.
Now in its 22nd year, this edition of the modelling competition is presented by Subaru MotorImage, with official apparel provided by Levi's and official footwear and accessories from New Look.
And unlike previous editions, there will be no age limit in this year's contest.
Now that the pool is getting more crowded, how do you stand out?
We asked some New Face 2013 girls for tips on nailing the street hunt round.
Recent polytechnic graduate Clarissa Teo, 21, said that competition appears to be tough this year, and she'll be keeping an eye out for an "outstanding personality".
"I'd look for a good sport who would be committed to the competition, because there are a lot of rehearsals and photo shoots."
CONFIDENCE IS KEY
Clarissa added: "Be confident. If they know they want to be part of the competition, they should approach us instead of us approaching them."
Former contestant Humaira Masjol, 21, also agreed that confidence is important, as much as a good catwalk, a winning smile and a never-say-die attitude.
"The first time I tried out for New Face (in 2012), I didn't even get past round 2," the student said.
"Then last year, I was scouted when I wasn't even trying. So just give it a try, maybe it's your turn.
As for 16-year-old Aprile Marangos, it was an "overwhelming experience" getting scouted for TNP New Face.
She also offered some words of encouragement: "Don't feel down if you aren't selected, it doesn't mean you're worse than others."
