Please limit your file sizes to under 1MB per picture, and please do not email more than 2MB per email, per individual. Thank you.

You must bring photographs with you . Some models enter with portfolios and composites while others just bring snapshots. Dress casually and apply simple make-up. Be natural and patient.


Do I need professional pictures?

Absolutely not! If you have professional pictures, we will accept them, but generally we prefer polaroids and snapshots because they are more natural. Have a friend or a family member take them of you. Color photography is preferred. 


What should I include with my photos?

Please include your name, measurements (height, weight, bust, chest, hips, waist,), age, hair color, eye color, a contact phone number, and an address.


What if I have an agency?

Many different models from various agencies around the globe are represented by Wilhelmina. It is customary to have them contact us. If you have a “mother agency”, they must contact us in order for you to be placed here.


Will my photos be returned and when should I expect a response from an agent?

We are unable to return submissions to you. If our agents are interested, they will contact you. Please do not call to check on the status of your submission.


What types of models do you represent? Are there any requirements of the models?

At Wilhelmina, we represent all different types of professional models, in almost every age, size, and ethnicity. We limit ourselves to a specific amount of models in each category. The height requirement for female runway models is 5’8″ and above; for male runway models it is 6’0″ and above. However, we do have a Petite Models Division. Our lifestyle/commercial boards represent female and male models over 30. There is also a division representing children ages 2-12.


Where can I find information on model search events?

For information on upcoming model searches, please click on the “events” button on our website.


What if Wilhelmina is not interested?

Don’t lose hope! We are limited by what looks work for our market. Your look or type might not work for our agency at this particular time. We encourage you to resubmit pictures after 6 months. If you are seriously interested in modeling, with hard work and persistence, you can find success.
