PHOENIX – Five Valley residents won one-year modeling contracts with FORD/Robert Black Agency at the recent competition at the Outlets at Anthem.

The winners are: Alexandra B. and Mary N., both of Glendale, Emma D. of Prescott, Genesis V. of Flagstaff, and Trevor W. of Tempe.

Of the over 2,200 online entrants, the top 30 vote getters and an additional 110 models selected by the judges were invited to walk the catwalk at the Winner’s Circle on April 23 at Outlets at Anthem. There, 30 models were chosen as Outlets at Anthem Brand Ambassadors, and of those 30, the top five also received modeling contracts with FORD/Robert Black, three more contracts than originally advertised.

The other 25 Outlets at Anthem Brand Ambassadors, ranging in age from 6-32, include: Addyson D. of Chandler, Aleena E. of Glendale, Anthony C. of Florence, Ashley S. of Phoenix, Austin B. of Chandler, Baily S. of Peoria, Courtney N. of Tempe, Elizabeth C. of Phoenix, Jagger G. of Avondale, Jenna G. of Gilbert, Jessica K. of Goodyear, Kaetana S. of Phoenix, Kailyn S. of Scottsdale, Kambria J. of Queen Creek, Katherine R. of Phoenix, Makinlee L. of Gilbert, Marcel V. of Phoenix, Mariah H. of Glendale, Nicole K. of Phoenix, Presley M. of Globe, Ricky K. of Fountain Hills, Ritchie K. of Fountain Hills, Sydney W. of Phoenix, Taleka F. of Glendale, and Taylor G. of Phoenix. The group of 30 now has the opportunity to represent the center in its year-round print ad campaigns and television appearances. After the winners were crowned, they each received a mini photo shoot and had their headshots taken to start their new portfolios.

The panel of judges included FORD/Robert Black Fashion Assistant Sheena Adams; Outlets at Anthem Marketing Director, Sallyann Martinez; Outlets at Anthem Shopping Gal, Lisa Acquafredda; and Arizona Foothills Magazine’s Communications & Promotions Manager Karah Van Kammen.
