The contest will launch on August 26, 2008, the date This Year's Model goes on-sale. From August 26 to November 20, potential cover girls from 16 to 25 years of age can submit photos to the contest.

Alt, a savvy and innovative marketer whose creative skills were recently featured when she became a top-2 runner up on Celebrity Apprentice, created this contest as a way to help a young woman break into the competitive world of professional modeling.

In her debut novel, This Year's Model (in-stores August 26), Alt introduces readers to the high-stakes world of modeling and gives valuable life lessons to all young women looking to break into the field."(Modeling) is one of the only businesses where a woman makes more money than a man," says Alt, "and in which a young girl can achieve financial stability, meet great people, and travel the world all while becoming famous and securing her future."

Widely regarded as one of the world's most recognizable faces after launching the supermodel industry, Alt believes that modeling can be a healthy and empowering career for a young womanand wanted to offer a hand in helping a new talent into the industry with the NEXT YEAR'S MODEL online search.

August 26 - November 20, 2008: Contestants, aged 16-25, can enter the contest and send a photo for consideration. New finalists will be posted daily at Avon's contest.
