Are you interested in modeling for Wilhelmina Models?
Wilhelmina represents all different types of professional models at almost every age, size, and ethnicity. You can submit photos to Wilhelmina by email, attend an open casting call, or enter through Wilhelmina Model Search.
Professional photos are not necessary — in fact, color snapshots, smartphone photos even, are preferred. Have a friend or family member take them for you. We request that you send at least one clear full face head shot and one clear full length body shot. The most important thing is that we see a natural you. No makeup is needed. You can send a composite, if you have one, along with the face and body digitals.
The height requirement for female models is 5’8 (173 cm) and above; for male models it is 6’0 (183 cm) and above.
To submit photos to Wilhelmina NY, please send photos along with your name, measurements (height, weight, bust, chest, hips, waist), age, hair color, eye color, a contact phone number, and address, to NYmen@wilhelmina.com (male models) or NYwomen@wilhelmina.com (female models). Photos should be no larger than 800 pixels in height or width. Wilhelmina will only accept files that are smaller than 1 MB.
Kids & Teens:
To submit photos to the Kids & Teens Division, please send photos along with your name, child's name, age, height, a contact phone number, and email address, to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Open Call Submissions:
Please check the open call calendar for open call dates in New York. When attending an open call please bring the photos required. The back of each photo should include your name, measurements (height, weight, bust, chest, hips, waist), age, hair color, eye color, a contact phone number, email, and address.
Model Search Submissions:
Please visit the model search website for details on entering a Wilhelmina Model Search at www.WilhelminaModelSearch.com.
Please note that if you already have an agency, then it is customary to have them contact us before you can be placed at Wilhelmina.
Unfortunately due to high volume we are only able to contact those of interest. If our agents are interested, then they will contact you. Do not lose hope. Your look might not work for our agency at this particular time, but we encourage you to resubmit your photos after six months.
