Could you be the next green model?

The second season of an ongoing competition to find the next green "it" girl is open to entrants until December 31.  


The competition called Project Green Search aims to inspire people to follow careers which encapsulate environmental, social and humanitarian ethics. The competition, now in its second year, aims to find an environmentally minded woman to represent a wide variety of eco-conscious activates.

Following a public vote and a selection by judges, contestants will be filmed, interviewed and asked to participate in challenges before one environmentally minded entrant is selected to be a spokesperson, ambassador and model for sustainable ethics in businesses.

The winner will receive representation by a modeling agency, professional photography sessions, and exposure with eco-fashion houses, green products and non-profit advertising campaigns.

The competition is now open to entrants and will close on December 31, 2010 and the finals will take place in Los Angeles, USA.

For those that are unable to make the trip or lack the required gender, extracts from the competition will be available to watch online. Those that are keen to get a glimpse of the previous winner can watch the first season of Project Green Search here.

The winner of the annual Miss Earth beauty pageant also promotes awareness of environmental issues. The current winner and representative of the Miss Earth Foundation is Larissa Ribeiro Ramos from Brazil. The next Miss Earth Competition will be held in November in Vietnam.
