Casting call for Face of JD Sports
Sep '11
JD Sports, the UK's leading sports fashion retailer, is launching its first ever nationwide campaign to find 16 people to be the 'The Face of JD'. The lucky winners will appear in the Company's November nationwide advertising campaign.

The search begins this Tuesday 20th September at www.faceofjd.com. So, if you think you've got what it takes then this is your big chance to get online and get chosen! JD isn't looking for supermodels; they want real people with real style and the confidence to match!

Look out for the JD Buzz Teams who will be hitting the road next week with 'Face of JD' talent scouts and film crews - they could be visiting your college or a high street near you! For details of which areas they'll be in each day check out JD's official Facebook & Twitter pages.

Entering is easy, all you need to do is visit website and upload a photo of yourself. Once you have applied, get everyone you know to vote for you online. The top 20 most-voted-for entries will automatically go through to one of the castings.

JD's judging panel of experts will also be making their way through all the entries to select a further 800 people to attend a casting at a secret location in either London on Saturday 1st October or Manchester on Saturday 8th October.

The people invited to the exclusive JD castings will have their photo taken by professional photographers and be filmed by the JD TV crew. Everyone invited to a casting will also receive a JD goody bag packed full of freebies!

Once the castings are over, the judges will select 8 winners from each day. The winners will be collected from their homes the following morning and whisked off to the official JD photo shoot where they will be photographed wearing the latest JD gear by a leading fashion photographer. The best images from the day will then appear nationwide in JD's next advertising campaign!

So what are you waiting for? Enter now to be The Face of JD and see your face in JD stores across the UK, on billboards, posters and in the JD magazine! Or, if you know someone who should enter tell them about it! The closing dates are Tuesday 27th September to enter for the London casting or Tuesday 4th October to enter for the Manchester casting.
