    How does the judging process work?

    1. Once we have received your video, it will be evaluated and assessed by our judges.
    2. Should your submission be shortlisted (in our sole discretion), you may be contacted for more information. If you don’t hear from us, please consider your entry unsuccessful.
    3. The judges will then choose the top ten girls and top ten guys. Should you be selected you will need to be present for an interview on Friday 17 March 2017, between approximately 12:00 – 18:00. The venue for this judging round will be confirmed prior. If you are unable to attend this interview please understand that you will forfeit your entry.
    4. Once interviews have been concluded, the judges will choose two girls and two guys as Finalists, whilst the public will be able to vote for their favourite girl and guy to be included in the Top 6. The public will be able to vote by liking the entrant’s photo in an album posted on Gateway’s Facebook Page. The girl and guy with the most likes respectively will form part of the final six. Liking of the entrant’s photos will be conducted from the 17th March – 24th March and will close at 9:00 am on the 24th March 2017. All 6 Finalists will be announced on Friday 24 March.
    5. The 6 Finalists will need to be available for an approximate 2 day photo shoot and final judging process on the 30th & 31st March 2017. Again, if you are not able to attend these two days, your entry will be forfeited.
    6. The winners (one girl & one guy) will be announced on the 31 March 2017.

    1. Entries open 20th January 2017 and close at midnight on 5th March 2017.
