Four aspiring Redlands supermodels could kick-start their careers at the final of a national competition later this month.
Laina Eady, Ella Richards, Olivia Miller and Piper Konias have made the final of the Australian Supermodel of the Year competition, and could be future faces of Vogue magazine.
The girls will fly to Bali for the final on January 23.
They will learn from fashion and modelling experts and participate in industry workshops, while soaking in Bali culture.
Ella, 17, was thrilled even to make the final.
The bushfire emergency in NSW affected her family, meaning Ella was not able to attend the auditions. She was forced to send a video of herself answering the preliminary questions.
"I am very shocked that I got this far," the Birkdale teen said.
She will chalk the trip up to valuable experience if she does not win, and plans to enjoy the experience meeting other aspiring models.
"I'll be fine if I don't win," Ella said.
Olivia, 16, said the competition wasn't just about looks.
"It is about embracing diversity within the modelling industry," she said.
Olivia began modelling when she was discovered by a Sydney agency on Instagram. She now works for an agency on the Gold Coast.
The Redland Bay girl said university was her back-up plan if modelling did not work out.
"It would be amazing to be a successful model, however going to university has always been a priority for me," she said.
"My interests are in the medical or legal field."
Laina, 14, said the experience would lead to better things in her career.
"I believe this will help me grow, not only as a model, but as a person as well, and open the door to new opportunities in my career," she said
"I just couldn't believe it when I heard I made the finals. I am so excited to be heading to Bali and can't wait to experience this opportunity with my fellow finalists, and learn new things."
The girls will compete for a share in $25,000 in prizes.
