Application Guidelines

Application Guidelines

Ready to get into Modeling in China? Then you’re in the right place!

First and foremost: you don’t have to have any previous experience or a portfolio of expensive professional headshots to apply. China welcomes the world’s next great modeling talent, no matter where in the world he or she is coming from. So don’t be shy. It’s time to introduce yourself to ICN – and just maybe China as well!
 
As you complete your application, remember you’re trying to make an impression on Chinese designer brands, modeling agencies and media companies who have never met you. Use this platform to show us who you are and what you look like at your most natural.
 
Your best bet is to grab your parent, sibling, or best friend – the person you trust most snapping your picture on their smart phone camera – and start having fun. When in doubt, think passport photo over fashion shoot.
 
Of course, there are a few specific rules, so be sure to read all the instructions thoroughly.

Hide STEP 2: MEASUREMENTS
Hide STEP 4: PHOTO AND VIDEO SUBMISSION

Please submit four photos of yourself: full-lenth, wasit-up, close-up, and profile. Do your best to replicate the sample images below. These don't need to be professionally done, but there are some guidelines:

Shoot your photos outdoors in natural daylight but not direct sunlight. Remember, we're looking for natural so no makeup, wear your hair down, and no smiles, please. This is like a passport photo to document your look for us.

full length

waist up

close up

profile

Video Guidelines:

Now that we have your photos, we’d like to get to know your personality and see how you walk in full-length – with a brief, 30-second video.

You should be fresh-faced, with no makeup and clean hair worn down. You’re not walking the runway; a simple outfit will do. Skinny jeans and a sleeveless, plain colored top for girls; form-fitting jeans and a solid t-shirt for guys.

Tell us your name, age, height, and where you’re from. Show us a normal, casual walk back and forth in front of the camera so we can see your full line. And yes, now you can feel free to smile for us!
