Ujena Swimwear & Fashions has been hosting a talent competition for over 20 years called the Ujena Bikini Jam. The Bikini Image Awards was added last year to give partnering companies an opportunity to also discover talent. Partnering companies who have already confirmed for this year include Coca Cola, Bennett Productions, Maxim en espanol, Latin Supermodel Calendar, Action Event Pros, OffSpot.com, Americanmodel.com, Telemudo, Piel Dorada, RP Shelton Company, Ultimate Bikini Team, and Corona.
The Ujena Makeup for Print Competition is being added this year. The competition will be a jugded event during the Bikini Jam. Each Makeup artist contestant will be interviewed by the panel of judges and will submit 10 images of their work done during the Jam. The winning artist will receive the coveted Bikini Image Award, all expence paid exotic location shoot with the Ujena Crew and a $1,000 Ujena contract.
Competition details: All the contestants will interview with the panel of judges at the Bikini Jam Expo and Casting. The competing makeup artist will make it a priority to cast and interview with Ujena.
Models and photographers are shooting first light and last light of every day of the competition to creat images for their portion of the competition. The models are always looking for help with their makeup on and off set and so are the photographers. This gives makeup artist the opportunity to provide the best glamour style images. It is up to the makeup artists to chose and book their own appointments as an independent contractor with either the photographer and or model to secure their images for judging. Ujena does not control, demand, or dictate how they get the images.
The only requirement is to submit the 10 images to the Bikini Jam from the event and on time. The makeup artist can either shoot the images themselves or partner with competing photographers to take the images for them. The 10 images will include, a before and after shot, of each of the five models selected to turn in for judging. The makeup artist will be judged and selected from these 10 images and their casting interview. Top six will be selected and join the Bikini Jam Shoot Outs with the top 20 models and top 10 photographers.
The top six will also be the official makeup artist for the final nights show, The Bikini Image Awards. The final judging will continue and the over all winner in the makeup catagory will be announced at the Bikini Image Awards Sept 2, 2007.
