All good things come in threes as the saying goes and anyone attending last year’s Runway final - our third annual competition for aspiring models - cannot have failed to be impressed by those who took part.

Nineteen-year-old under-graduate Chloe Lockley-Middleton was a popular winner following in the footsteps of Isla Rowe (17) in 2013 and Dita Krona (26) the following year.

The 2015 event was a resounding success, watched by an audience of approaching 100 at a special catwalk show at Harveys Department store in Halifax.

Now along with our event-partners Harveys and Morton Gledhill- The Fashion Team we are looking for entrants to this year’s competition.

As previously, there are fabulous prizes for the winner including a £250 voucher to spend at Harveys plus a goody bag, a fashion shoot with a Courier photographer to help start an all-important portfolio and an introduction to modelling course with co-sponsor Morton Gledhill - The FashionTeam, the Huddersfield based model agency.

Bernadette Gledhill, managing director of Morton Gledhill, said: “All the girls who won have done brilliantly. This really is a wonderful opportunity for young women who would like to see if they have what it takes to be a model.”

Once again the finale will be a part of Harveys’ Spring and Summer fashion launch.

Tony Murray, general manager at Harveys, added: “It’s great to see Runway back for a fourth year.

“The standard has always been very high and I think the competition and our annual fashion event complement one another perfectly.”

Harveys, Morton Gledhill and the Courier would like to hear from girls who are eligible to enter by Friday, February 26.

A casting will then take place and the lucky finalists will be invited to take part in the Harveys fashion event at the end of March when a winner will be chosen(all dates and times will be revealed over the next few weeks).

How to enter

The competition is open to girls who are aged 15 or upward at the time of entry.
