Inspired by the TV show, The Four, this competition will revolve
around modeling themes/styles. Model's and their photographer's
will battle their way each week to remain in the top four.
How this Works:
*Each round photographer's and their model's will battle it out to grab
a spot in the top four.
*They must then return for each round to battle it out with
returning and/or new photographer's and their model's to try to
remain in the top four.
*New photographers and their models may enter at any time. During the first 4 days of a round, if you are a new entry, you must submit your photographer and model within those first 4 days or you will not be allowed to submit the current round assignment.
*Model's will have a chance to get up to 1200 points total through the
course of 6 Rounds, dependent on number of judges. (Round points
*If you are one of the top four and drop during an assignment, you
will be replaced with the next model with the highest score and you
will forfeit all points earned. If you choose to re-enter, you will need
to re-enter with a new model.
*You (photographer) and your model may enter as many times as you wish. (If you are not one of the
current Top Four, drop or get knocked out of a top four spot)
*If you are one of the top four at the end of one round and get knocked out on another, the photographer may re-enter but with a different model.
*If you are in one of the top four spots and get knocked out, you (the photographer) will retain 1/2 of the total points earned. Example: Photographer A is in the top four spot for rounds 1,2 & 3 earning a total of up to 600pts. Lets say she earned the following: R1 200, R2 146 & R3 148 giving a grand total of 182pts and she gets knocked out in R4. Photographer A will start R5 with a total of 91pts (1/2 of 182) + score from R4. So lets say she got a total score of 138 for round 4, Round 5 she will start with 229 pts.
*A photographer that gets knocked out from a top four spot will have to return the following round in order to keep retained points earned. Example: Photographer A must return with a new model for Round 5 to keep all points earned.
*All photographers/models will accumulate scores through out the entire comp.
*Imagination, Creativity and Uniqueness will be required.
**NEW** *Sign-ups will close after the 3rd round, there are only 6 rounds in this competition, after r3 it will be almost impossible to place in the overall top four.

*Each round will run for 9 days.
*Each round's total points will be worth 50 pts per judge.
*Model's have a chance to earn up to 1,200 combined
total points **(see below).
*The Four photographers/models who have the highest combined
total score at the end of Round 6 will be The Final Top Four.

*Judges will NOT have to give any comments unless they
*Judges will have a score sheet that they will use to calculate
each model's assignment and will cast their vote for each model
