O2C Next Top Model (ONTM) – Rugged Theme

This is the search of the next O2C Top Model. The theme of the 3rd assignment is rugged! We are looking for the most versatile model in his/her rugged looks, style and appearances. We are not searching for the most good looking model, but simply a model when he/she puts on a pair of jeans he/she is able to carry bring out the best of the theme This is what this 3rd assignment is all about! Welcome to the ONTM!

Location. The location of photo shooting is an old abandoned house near a construction site in Tanjung Aru, next to the 2nd Beach. The eerie old house coupled with the filthy floor and broken wall provide the ruggedness setting required for the photo shooting session.

Photo Shots. Each of the models was given at least 12 shots each for the session. Each of them can choose various spots in and around the house. How they pose and which angle of the shots were at the prerogative of the model and the photographer. Some of the results were pretty amazing and some are not. The judges had a difficult times selecting the photo shots.

Changes. There will be a slight change on the part of the judging panel for this 3rd assignment. Firstly, the judges will select two photographs i.e. a full body length and close up photographs, from the 12 shots taken for each model. This is the judges’ choice at their discretion. If any of the models has shown any of the photograph(s) in their blogs prior to the selection, the judges will not choose such photograph even though it was an excellent one. The photograph itself will be disqualified automatically. Secondly, there will be an online voting via blogs, facebook and emails. All votes will be sent to a specified email provided by the judges. Lastly, each of the models will be allowed to campaign their friends, families and acquaintances to vote for them via emails, blog and facebook. Again, all votes will be sent to a specified email provided by the judges for counting purposes.

What it takes to be the next O2C Top Model? You just have to wait and see! Enjoy the show and this is the search of the O2C Next Top Model.
