Two television catwalk queens have joined the judging panel for the Reporter Series’ own modelling competition.

We’re looking for the Faces of 2014 – and TV stars Emma Ward and Saffron Williams, who took part in this year’s Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model on Sky Living are to help pick the winner.

Emma, from Heckmondwike, and Saffron, from Batley, are busy carving out catwalk careers, but will take time out to judge the competition from the readers’ shortlist in December.

Emma, who is recovering from a broken hip, said: “I’m really excited about the competition – I hope I’m fully recovered by then!”

Saffron said: “I’m honoured and delighted to be part of the judging panel. I can’t wait to see all the entries!”

We’re looking for one man and one woman from our area to become our Face of 2014.

You don’t have to be Cara Delevingne or David Gandy to enter – all you need is the desire to succeed.

And there are some fantastic prizes on offer for the lucky chosen two.

The Reporter Series has teamed up with the Mill Outlet, Batley, to offer £250 per winner to spend in the village, which will also provide a hair and beauty makeover at Harmonize salon and clothes styling.

They will also be offered a one year initial contract with Catwalk Model Management and a free makeover, including hair styling, and portfolio shoot by the Make Up Studio, Wakefield.

To enter, you need to live in the Reporter Series area and be aged 16 or over.

You don’t need a professional model portfolio to enter – just send us a head and shoulders photograph.

The closing date for entries is November 11. Our readers will have until November 26 to vote for their favourite.

The top five contestants will go forward to the final in December when the winner will be chosen by an expert panel. Email photographs to with your full name, age, address and contact number.

Alternatively, pop into our office in Wellington Road, Dewsbury, with your photograph and contact details.
