Everyone involved agreed that last year’s Runway 2014 modelling competition was a resounding success.

There were lots of entries and 17-year-old sixth former Isla Rowe was a worthy winner following a grand finale in March 2013.

Now the event returns with the backing of Morton Gledhill The Fashion Team - the successful Calderdale and Kirklees company, Harveys of Halifax and the Courier.

Over the next three weeks we would like to invite girls, aged 15 upwards at the time of entry, who are a minimum of 5ft 7in tall and think they have what it takes to become a model, to submit a full length photograph with a natural look to an email (100 kbs or larger) in casual clothes - closing date February 23, details at the end of the story.

We will feature each entrant on February 28 and invite votes from Courier readers, with the most popular 12 featured on March 14.

On Monday, March 17 the semi-finalists will be invited to meet a panel of judges at Harveys of Halifax after which a decision will be made on the six finalists.

There will be a dress rehearsal at Harveys on April 5 and three days later the final will take place in front of a live audience.

“Runway proved its popularity last year so we are all looking forward to organising an even bigger and better event this year,” said Bernadette Gledhill, of Morton Gledhill The Fashion Team.

“Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves so much Harveys are glad to be behind Runway again,” added Tony Murray, general manager of Harveys.

The winner of the competition will be enrolled on an Introduction to Modelling course with Morton Gledhill, she will receive vouchers from Harveys and will have her own special fashion photoshoot with a Courier photographer.

Last year’s event was won by Ryburn Valley High School pupil Isla Rowe, who is now on the books at Morton- Gledhill..
