EGERI TOUR

EGERI TOUR is one of the biggest model competitions in Europe. Each year, a selection tour is organized in France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg in order to discover the new faces of fashion.
EGERI TOUR is not an agency. This is a model contest that allows young fashion hopefuls to get noticed. Each candidate selected during the selection phases also has an online photo book on the website www.egeri-tour.com accessible by numerous fashion professionals. EGERI TOUR also enables models to be put in touch with professionals for various projects.
Integrate an agency:

Following your participation in one of the selection phases, your photo book will be made available to the agencies working with the competition at the end of the tour.

Become known :

By participating in EGERI TOUR, you benefit from an ideal international exposure to be spotted by fashion professionals. Your photo book will be posted online for 1 year and visible for free..

To live an experience :

EGERI TOUR is much more than a model contest. Throughout the adventure, you benefit from advice. Throughout the stages, you will meet seasoned professionals who will guide you in your career.

Participate in the shooting:

Each model entered in the contest is photographed by a professional and leaves with one or more high quality photos. These photos will be published on the website www.egeri-tour.com and will allow the participant to be optimally promoted.
The EGERI TOUR competition remains a unique and enriching experience. Candidates who have already signed a contract with a modeling or management agency are allowed to participate. They keep the same chances as the other candidates to win the contest and its prizes.
All selected candidates have a freely accessible online profile. A candidate can then be offered other contracts by other agencies or professionals.
Thanks to the contact form integrated in each online candidate profile on our website, we receive daily requests from modeling agencies, photographers, brands, etc...
Any request made on our website will be processed by our team and must respect our ethical charter. After studying the request, the team will contact the candidate to propose the connection with the professional.
The contest offers a large visibility to the candidates thanks to the online profiles. Each candidate will be presented for 1 year on the egeri-tour.com website. The profiles are visited throughout the year by French and international modeling agencies as well as by fashion professionals (photographers, brands, etc...). Having your profile online on the site increases your chances of being spotted.
The 2 winners of the EGERI TOUR 2021 edition were in the "editorial model" category. So it is possible to win the contest, no matter in which category you participate!

The selection phase by city can last between 1 hour and 2 hours. We therefore advise you to reserve a sufficiently large time slot to be able to fully participate in the event.
You will need to wear your own outfit during the selections. We advise you to come already dressed.

For women, prefer a simple and close-fitting outfit (your silhouette should be visible). It is advisable to choose shoes with heels (pumps, wedge soles, ankle boots). Avoid caps, beanies and hats. Photoshoots are made without accessories (glasses, caps, etc.).

For men, prefer a simple and close-fitting outfit such as jeans/t-shirt or shirt. Avoid caps, beanies and hats. Photoshoots are made without accessories (glasses, caps, etc.).
We ask you to come with a valid identity card. If you are a minor, you must come accompanied by an adult and with the written permission of one of your parents/guardians.
We advise candidates to come without makeup. If you have imperfections, you can wear a "nude" type of makeup. Avoid false eyelashes, lip gloss and bright colors.
There is no hairdresser available on site. You will have to come already styled.

For candidates with long hair, please keep it simple: loose hair combed back or ponytail.

Extensions are allowed.
When registering on the site, we ask you to attach a photo of yourself to your request. We invite you to respect the following points:

The deliberation to choose the finalists who will reach the final in Paris is carried out by the EGERI TOUR team (casting managers, photographers, artistic director) as well as by the partners of the competition.

Deliberation for the winners

The deliberation to choose the two winners of the competition is carried out by a jury made up of fashion professionals.
A fashion show model must meet very strict pre-defined criteria that vary according to gender: fine body measurements, height greater than 172cm for women and non binary and 182cm for men (with some exceptions), attitude and ease during the show.
An editorial model is oriented towards photo and/or video advertising projects. The size and silhouette criteria are less strict than for the fashion model. The beauty of the face, the expressions and the photogenic are the most important criteria.
