In pursuit of modelling fame



ASPIRING models Amanda Barry and Krystle Bridges are hoping to get their big break in a modelling career if they win a model-search contest starting in Coolangatta later this month.

The Tweed-Gold Coast girls are entrants in the 2005 Best Model Australia contest, the country's longest-running international model search, the first heat of which will be held at Coolangatta Hotel on March 27 from 1pm.

They will be vying with over 1500 other young women throughout Australia to reach the national final to be held on the Gold Coast later this year and get the chance to represent Australia in a major international model world final and win exciting prizes includ- ing lucrative modelling jobs.

Amanda, 19, of Kirra, who is studying to become a primary school teacher, and Krystle, 22, a hairdresser from Carool, both cut their teeth in modelling earlier this year in the Ralph Swimwear Model of the Year competition, both reaching the finals with Amanda winning second prize.
