About 120 youngsters including 20 girls are participating in the Model Hunt-2013 organised by Needle Works at The Quorum Hotel on Vinoba Road here today.

Interestingly, boys outnumbered girls among the model-aspirants who had come from city and from far off places like Chikkamagalur and Gulbarga.

The jury to select the model trainees comprised TV actor Karthik Jayaram, Miss India runner-up Chinu Kala, Fashion Choreographer Geetha Shetty and Mr. Karnataka Suraj Gowda.

The selection process included ramp walking, introduction and measurement of vital statistics.

Briefing Star of Mysore about the event, Needle Works Proprietor and designer Jayanthi Ballal said, “The selected youngsters in the age group of 16-28 years will be thoroughly groomed for 45 days in various aspects of modelling who can later foray into any commercial sector as a professional. The training will include swimming, cycling, fitness training, soft-skill training and personality development.” Jayanthi added that the Model Hunt began in 2011 and was being organised every year.
