Ghana Models Awards Returns Back This August
Ghana Models Awards, Ghana’s first ever modeling awards scheme returns back this year after three years on the 21st of August, 2020.
The awards scheme returns with a new category in order to encourage models in some unique areas of the profession as well as models of Ghanaian heritage who are excelling abroad.
This year, about 15 awards, including Runway Model of the Year, Bikini Model of the Year, Discovery of the Year, Overall Male Model of the Year and the Overall Female Model of the Year, will be given out on the night.
The Founder of the Ghana Models Awards Jerry Wonder, stated that the event is the only awards scheme that genuinely seeks to improve the profession of modelling in Ghana and to help project Ghana’s models to the next level.
“Ghana Models Awards is the only awards scheme that genuinely seeks to improve the profession of modelling in Ghana. This year, we are going to celebrate our hardworking achievers within the modelling fraternity in Ghana who indeed made some impact in 2019”.
“Modelling is a profession and just as teachers, bankers and others go about their work, models also do the same. But, it is the lack of certain policies to protect the work of models in Ghana that is crippling our industry. Why should models from outside be used for some major jobs by companies in Ghana when we have local talents who are competent enough?”.
“This year we are going to celebrate our hardworking achievers within the modeling fraternity in Ghana who indeed made some impact in 2019. We will also be adding a new category to include our brothers and sisters doing very well on other continents. The event will come off at a very serene but glamorous venue which we will later announce later”.
According to him, modelling was a great profession just like any other, but it’s unfortunate most people didn’t see it that way in Ghana.
This year’s edition according to the Founder will come off at a plush venue of that nature and will recognize models who have excelled in the profession during the year 2019.
This year’s Ghana Models Awards will be the third edition of the awards scheme. The current recipients of the highest awards of the night during the last edition were Ian Wordi who took home 3 awards including the Overall Male Model of the Year, and Victoria Michaels who received the Overall Female Model of the Year award.
The first edition of the Ghana Models Awards came off in 2013 at the Alisa Hotel in Accra with the last one taking place in 2016.
