The Mornington Racing Club is once again on a mission to find a local ambassador to help bring the new season’s racing and fashion activities to life as part of its annual Face of Mornington Racing Club competition.

Now in its sixth year, the Face of Mornington Racing Club is campaigning to find a woman at least 18 years of age and residing on the Mornington Peninsula who will have opportunity to participate in an official Mornington Racing Club photo shoot and feature in associated marketing material with the possibility of carving out a career in professional hosting, presenting and modelling.

Last year’s 2013 Face of Mornington Racing Club Jessica Whitfort, who is a presenter on RPP FM’s sporting radio program The Locker Room explained it was a wonderful experience. Jessica said, “I met so many amazing people within the racing and fashion industry and loved being able to showcase the talent of world class race meets, functions, fashion, millinery and personalities the Peninsula has to offer.” The beautiful Jessica added, “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity I would highly recommend.”

The successful applicant will receive VIP entry to key fashion and race day events and assist with hosting, trophy presentations, conducting interviews with media and on-stage, plus assume the very important role of judging Fashions on the Field.

Each of the 10 finalists, including the winner, will win the option to have their own Model Website from Pro Talent Sites.

In return, the victorious candidate will land an expansive cache of prizes including:
– A professional photoshoot for the 2014/15 Mornington Racing Club advertising campaign
–  $500 cash
– A12 month modelling and management contract with Adpro Management Group
–  Styling by celebrated Milliner Annette Sanfilippo, hairdressing at Mornington’s Zumay Salon     in association with MRC appearances
– Fashion and styling prizes from Guinot
