The beautiful Belarussian girl has won a year contract in the sum of $250,000
A girl from Belarus, Katya Damenkova, won the World Supermodel Contest in New York. An 11th grader from Belarus's capital Minsk won the final of the annual contest held by Ford Models agency. The Belarussian girl was lucky to become the best of other contestants from 38 countries of the world.
Katya will have an opportunity to conclude a $250,000 contract with Ford Models. Contestants from Canada and the Philippines who took the second and the third places would sign $150,000 and $100,000 contracts respectively. Other prize-winners of the contest – girls from the Netherlands, the USA and Estonia – also won smaller contracts in the modeling business.
Russia was represented in the contest by 16-year-old Olesya Boslovyak, the winner of Supermodel of Russia 2005. The Russian girl has not entered the list of prize-winners, Itar-Tass reports.
The winner of Supermodel of the World said that she is enormously attracted to the profession of a model because of an ability to travel and meet many well-known people. “The competition was tough at the contest. It was extremely pleasant for me to win,” Katya Damenkova told reporters.
The Supermodel of the World contest is considered to be one of the most important springboards for young models. The first contest was held in September of 1980 in Monte Carlo. It attracts fashion magazine editors, photographers and designers from all over the world.
