HOW would you like to be The Gazette Face of 2012?

We’ve teamed up with the Houndshill Shopping Centre, in the heart of Blackpool, to search for the town’s most stylish men and women……and we’ve got £500 worth of prizes to be won plus a place with local modelling agency Angels Elite Models & Promotions!

We’re looking for someone who has the looks, the personality and the style to represent Blackpool’s premier shopping centre. So, if you’ve fancied yourself on the catwalk or starring in a fashion photo shoot then here’s your chance. All you need to do is send in a photograph of yourself, along with your name, age, address and telephone number to: (Please put Face of 2012 in the subject box).

You can also send in your entries by post to: Face of 2012, The Gazette, Promotions Dept, Avroe House, Avroe Crescent, Blackpool Business Park, Blackpool FY4 2DP.

Alternatively, why not come down to one of the FREE photo sessions that are taking place at the Houndshill Shopping Centre THIS week. The Gazette photographic team will be in the shopping centre on the following dates - Thursday 16, Friday 17 and Saturday 18 August between noon and 4pm. The team will also be there the following week too, on Thursday, 23, Friday 24 and Saturday 25 August. No appointment is necessary, just turn up and strike a pose!

Closing date for entries is Friday, September 7th. If you are sending in your own photograph, please send in a clear picture of your head and shoulders. The competition is only open to males and females over 16 years of age.

All photographs will be featured in The Gazette and readers will get the chance to vote for their favourites. The ten men and women with the most votes will be invited to take part in a fashion photo shoot down at the Houndshill in September.

The overall winner will be chosen by a panel of judges from the Houndshill Shopping Centre, Angels Elite Models & Promotions and The Gazette. Gazette competition rules apply.

Houndshill Shopping Centre is located in the heart of Blackpool, just behind the Tower. The centre has a fantastic line up of shops including Debenhams, Primark, Next, River Island and Pandora to name just a few, and offers the very best in lifestyle shopping and fashion for the whole family. Plus, the centre recently announced new retailers arriving at Houndshill to include Trespass, Duffer, The Fragrance Shop, Millies Cookies and Vision Express.

The team at the Centre have also recently announced a £1.5m transformation of the car park at Houndshill, which will create a first class parking facility within the heart of the town.

Houndshill is joining up with The Gazette to look for Blackpool’s most stylish men and women, and that person will become The Face of the Centre.

Debbs Lancelott, centre manager at Houndshill Shopping Centre, said: “We’re looking forward to starting the search for The Face of 2012. We’d want to find someone with the personality and style that most represents Houndshill and hope that everyone will join in, especially during the free photo sessions at the Centre – which should be great fun!”
