The New Paper New Face 2016: Their journey so far
There is just about a month to go to The New Paper New Face 2016 finals on Sept 2 at Marina Square.
And the Top 20 finalists are gearing up for the finishing line.
And what has their journey been like in the competition so far?
Ashley Soo, 16, is the youngest finalist. She says she feels the pressure. The CHIJ Katong Convent student adds: "I really look up to the other finalists."
Sohee Park, 23,was spotted when she was walking around Bugis Junction in June.
The business management student at James Cook University was with her friend, a model, when a contestant from last year's New Face approached her.
Sohee, who is from Korea, says: "I am a foreigner, so this competition is a big thing for me here in Singapore."
Shwetaa Rai, 19, was working as a part-time waitress in January when she was scouted by New Face's creative director, Yeoh Wee Teck, at a dinner event.
Shwetaa, who is waiting to start school at the Singapore Institute of Management, recounts: "He kept staring at me, so I thought there was something wrong with my face.
"He called me over later and asked for my particulars. Then he gave me his name card to e-mail him and enter the competition."
Faustina Pang, 21, says her journey in the competition has been enjoyable.
She has been making new friends and learning new things.
The marketing student at RMIT University adds: "It is an eye-opener for me, learning how to pose for the shoots and learning how to walk."
Zahra Khanum, 21, a sociology student at the National University of Singapore, says the most fun she has had in the competition has been the photo shoots.
Zahra says: "Getting make-up and hair done is always exciting. Posing in front of the camera is something I am beginning to enjoy a lot more as well."
Look out for the Top 20's individual four-page spreads in The New Paper starting tomorrow.
