Christopher & Banks Launches Its First Nationwide Interactive Model Contest
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Casting Call: Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks launch an interactive model contest.
Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks are looking for real women with real lives to be a part of their spring photo shoot. To register and see the contest rules, women 35 or older can go to www.model.christopherandbanks.com or www.model.cjbanks.com, upload a recent photograph of themselves and tell us in 150 words or less what they are doing in their lives, with their family or in their community that keeps them true to themselves. Contestants can then encourage their friends and family to vote for them via Facebook, Twitter or email.
Customers can register from November 6, 2010 through December 24, 2010 and anyone can visit the websites to see the contestants and vote for their favorite! Voting will be open through December 31, 2010 and winners will be selected and notified by January 31, 2011.
One winner will be selected for Christopher & Banks and one winner for CJ Banks. Each winner will be flown to Minneapolis for the spring photo shoot, receive a $500 Christopher & Banks / CJ Banks gift card and $500 to donate to their charity of choice. Second and third place winners will also be selected for each brand and given a Christopher & Banks / CJ Banks gift card.
"Customers told us they wanted the fashion industry to show 'real' women in their fashion photography," says Etienne McManus-White, Vice President of Marketing. "We thought what better way to answer this than to have a contest where our customers can participate and be featured in our spring photo shoot."
