CAN I APPLY IF I DON’T MEET THE STANDARD CRITERIA?
Yes! At Platform Agency we strive for diversity and believe in representing unique personalities who do not solely satisfy traditional beauty norms in the modeling industry.
DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL PICTURES TO APPLY?
No you do not need professional pictures to apply as a model.
We ask you to take natural snapshots in daylight, these images can be taken by a friend or family member on a mobile phone or compact camera.
CAN I WEAR MAKEUP IN MY SNAPSHOTS?
We ask you to take your application images without makeup on, so we can see your natural beauty.
DO I NEED TO SEND SNAPSHOTS IN BIKINI?
If you are 18+ and feel comfortable with sending us bikini snapshots you are free to do so, but it’s not an obligation. We do need to see your body proportions (all body types are considered), so images that show off your body shape are helpful.
FROM WHAT AGE CAN I APPLY?
We prefer that our models have reached the age of 18, this does not mean that we don’t accept models under the age of 18. We kindly ask you to consult a parent or guardian before applying to us if you are under age.
CAN I APPLY FOR SOMEONE OTHER THAN MYSELF?
Unfortunately it is not possible to submit an application for someone else.
However, you can always encourage or help a friend or family member to apply instead!
DOES PLATFORM AGENCY HAVE OPEN CALLS?
Unfortunately we do not. We hand pick a few talents from our online application every month and invite them over for a personal intake. We kindly ask you to apply via our website if you want to get scouted as a model.
DO I HAVE TO PAY AN APPLICATION FEE TO GET SIGNED?
No, you should never have to pay to apply or sign to a modelling agency.
WILL I HEAR BACK?
We reply to all of our applications. When we are interested, we will invite you by email for an introduction at our office. If you are not selected, we unfortunately are not able to personally explain the reasoning.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GET A CALLBACK?
You will be invited by email for an introduction at our office. You can always bring a parent or guardian with you (this is mandatory if you are a minor). During this introduction someone from our team will personally explain you who we are and what we do, and answer any questions you might have. We will also take the time to write down your measurements and take some pictures and videos of you. After the meeting, we will gather feedback from the team to decide whether you will be signed to the agency. We always aim to let you know what our final feedback is within a few days!
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IM SIGNED?
When you have officially joined our agency, you will be invited for a follow-up meeting in which we will explain what the next steps are. To offer our models the right development and chance to explore what being a model is like, we organize an annual Model Day. During this day we provide our talents with an array of workshops guided by our team. In addition to the Model Day, we also offer The Platform Model Guide which we have created for the models who are represented by our agency. It consists of an extensive explanation of the many aspects that the career of a professional model includes, that can help you understand your profession as a model better.
