Our Face of 2014 winners have had their first taste of the modelling world with a photoshoot at the Mill Outlet, Batley.
Charlotte Middleton, 23, of Dewsbury, and Matthew Bukowski, 24, of Batley, were invited to the Mill to have their photographs taken and collect their prizes of £250 in vouchers to spend at the outlet.
In the coming weeks the pair will also have hair, beauty and clothes styling at Harmonize salon.
As part of their prize, they were offered a year’s initial modelling contract with Leeds agency Catwalk Model Management. In the new year Charlotte and Matthew will be having photographs taken for their portfolio for Catwalk.
The pair are delighted to have won the competition.
Charlotte said: “I wasn’t expecting to win. I am shocked; I didn’t expect it at all. It’s kind of a confidence boost because I lost 3st just over a year ago. I thought I would enter and just see how it went!”
Matthew said since winning the competition he had been recognised by a Reporter Series reader at Batley train station!
He said: “I wasn’t expecting to win. The photo is terrible. My uncle does a camera club and I offered to model for him one night to help out. My aunt got hold of the picture and entered me and then I got a phone call to say I’d been entered!
“It’s brilliant to win, £250 to spend at the Mill and a modelling contract is a great prize.”
