New faces: Chelsea Crawford

Selfie service

It was only a matter of time before model agencies would avail themselves of social media for scouting.

Two new faces recently profiled by Frockwriter, Madison Finn and Zana Dandy, were both first spotted by agents on Facebook.

Earlier this year British agencies Next Model Management and Models1 conducted crowd sourced model searches on Instagram, asking potentials to submit selfies.

In August, Sunshine Coast-based scouting agency Hunter Model Management director Jo Shiels launched her own Instagram selfie competition.

Gold Coast schoolgirl Chelsea Crawford was the winner. Shiels met with Crawford last week and signed her immediately.

Crawford is 15, turning 16 in December and is already 5'11" tall. No surprise she has also since been snapped up by Brisbane's Dally's Model Management.

Herewith her first test.
