Model Information

Artists may provide their own model or we will provide one for you.

Living Art America gives artists and models an opportunity to create together an unforgettable living work of art that will be captured in the minds of the viewer and preserved photographically. Your gift of time and talent will be rewarded with lasting images of your part in bringing the artist’s vision to life.

Requirements for models:

  • Must be over 18 years of age as of January 1, 2017
  • Provide digital images to share with the artists for selection
  • Have the ability to express the artist’s vision on stage and in front of the camera
  • Both Print and Runway experience preferred
  • Maintain a professional and courteous attitude at all times
  • You must sign a standard model release form

Models will be paired with their artists before the event by email or telephone so that the artist’s concept can be conveyed and the model knows what is expected.

Sample of Model Release Form

All models must agree to a model rehearsal and training session. This will take place approximately one week before the competition events. Date and place TBA.Note this is for local models only. If you’re traveling to participate, you needn’t be present for the training.

If you are invited to participate in the competition by an artist, you do not need to accept the first offer you receive. You may wish to reserve giving your answer for a time. It is very likely that you will receive more than one offer by more than one artist, and you have the right to choose the artist you would most like to work with. Once you make your choice, however, you must stick with the artist you have committed to. We ask that everyone treat each other with kindness and respect.
