The Top Model franchise was first set up in 2016, and within seven years has grown into an established and leading beauty pageant in the North East.

The Top Model North East beauty pageant will crown three winners as the top model of Newcastle, Durham and Sunderland. The live grand final of the competition will be held in the summer, on Sunday, July 2 at The Grand Hotel in Sunderland.

At the grand final, contestants will take part in a live catwalk competition, being judged by those with experience in the modelling and beauty pageant industry.

Contestants will also work towards raising money for UK-based charity, Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice. In previous years, Top Model North East contestants have raised over £24,000 for the charity, as well as other charities.
