VELOUR MODELS 2021 AUDITIONS

Velour Model Management opens its doors to aspiring models every January, giving them a once in a lifetime opportunity to start building a viable modeling career. We believe that modeling like any other performing art can be coined into a career and thus we have continuously encouraged and taught models to focus on the business aspect of modeling. Since our launch in 2017, we have taken pride in producing some of the most professional and successful models in Kenya. Our models have walked for designers, not just in Kenya, but in Uganda, Ethiopia, and Tanzania.

Velour Model Auditions take place only once every year (3rd or 4th Saturday of January). This is the only time that we sign new models, for a 3-year management contract. We not only ensure that our models receive the best training in the country, but that they have the right branding material to compete favorably with models all over the world. Velour Model audition requirements vary every year and are subject to clientele needs and market trends.

We have stretched the audition process for 2021 to ensure that we do not lock out anyone. Read the audition requirements and details below, very carefully:

        So far I think this is the best modelling agency and I’m looking forward to working with it πŸ€—

  1. I feel left out cause I school in eldoret and I have been waiting for this with so much excitement. Please put us ( people outside Nairobi) into consideration next time. Thank you

        Hi,
        I am left out since am not within your jurisdiction and I eagerly waited for the auditions.
        Your response will be highly appreciated.
        Thank you

  2. You are limiting this to only this that have social media accounts therefore not giving equal chances to people that can be qualified. I would prefer a physical audition to everyone.

  3. I really want to work with you guys…not just to earn or be seen but to learn and be exposed so that I be the best and explore my talent I know I will not be the same when I join you guys.
    Thanks for this platform.

  4. Hi Velour
    Every year, you always have a minimum height requirement that some of us who are willing to participate and would love to join this management do not have.
    I am 5’5 and modelling is everything to me but I do not get accepted anywhere. It is my wish that one day, Velour models will be of different height, you are the best in our country, you can create a little bit of a change! Please always consider, even if it’s one out of ten models each year.
    Otherwise, can one at least try and apply even though they don’t meet one of the requirements.
    Thank you. I really hope you will consider my(our) plea on behalf of many others. πŸ™

  5. Hello, I’d like to know if a South Sudanese is acceptable. Cause in your list of international participants, South Sudan isn’t included.

  6. Hello,i can’t believe I missed the registration dates, i have been waiting for this all year but I didn’t meet the requirements,please consider changing the height required
    Am 5’4 ,and valour has always been my dream agency since I found out about it in 2018 but then every year i get short listed because of one thing or another ,and it really hurts,i finally turned 19 but then am too short , please kindly consider changing the height required

  7. So, I just realized that I missed on this auditions. The sad bit is that the requirement on social media would have disqualified me… Is there an age limit? I will try out next year
