How to be a modelling audition star in the Philippines
The Philippines is known for its rich history of modelling and fashion.
But modelling auditions in the country are proving to be the most difficult and expensive of all, as the Philippines is facing the biggest challenge of its development.
Read moreThe Philippines is considered a “soft power” nation, where a lot of talent is developed, but its hard to get any kind of jobs.
This is because the Philippines has a lot in common with its Asian neighbours.
It is a land of cheap labour and cheap capital.
According to a recent survey by the Asian Development Bank, more than 80% of Filipinos do not have jobs.
The Philippines was also ranked as one of the most corrupt countries in the world in a recent report from the Economist Intelligence Unit.
Many Filipinos feel they have been neglected by the government and that the country has become a country that only pays lip service to its development goals.
According To Maria Cristina Crespo, president of the Philippine Modeling Academy (PMA), the government should pay more attention to the Philippines.
“We have a lot to offer the world.
We have talent that can help the world, but there is no support for Filipinos.
We need to find our own voice and show the world that we are capable of doing our job,” Crespos told Rappler.
Crespo believes that the Philippines could become a model-friendly country, where model agencies could work together to help the Philippines become a leading model-producing nation.
“It is important to have models working together to get models and businesses together and not just in the industry,” Cresco said.
Crescos point to the example of a young Philippine model, Nelita Guzman, who is currently ranked as the #1 female model in the globe.
Guzman has been modelling for almost 15 years.
“She has been working as a model for the last six years and has had her own agency.
This year she will be able to start working with a full-time agency,” Cretanas office manager, Maria Perales, told Rapplers.
According Crespes, the PMA is an ideal location to work in as a Filipina.
“The Philippines has an excellent modeling industry and many Filipinos have a chance to see this in action.
I hope that the PMAs efforts can benefit the Filipino model industry,” she said.
The PMA currently has over 70 Filipino models working in its programs.
“For every successful one, we will have another,” Cremones director, Maria Estrada, told the publication.
She believes that models who have worked with the PMI and have worked in the agency will be well-equipped to work with the agency and provide models with opportunities for growth and development.
“All models have the right to learn and grow in a positive way, which is what we want,” Estradas point out.
For her part, Nellita is also hopeful.
“If we have the chance to work together, I would like to go to Manila and work as a modeling agent.
I would love to show the Philippines that it is not just a place for the rich, but it is a place to work and be happy.”
