TV actresses Dawn Yeoh and Jayley Woo; models Vivien Ong and Victoria Bradbury – all these girls have one thing in common. They all got their big break from The New Paper New Face.

One of the most successful modeling competitions in Singapore, TNP New Face has launched the careers of not only many local models but also actresses and entertainers. Other illustrious New Face alumni include radio DJ Jacqui Thibodeaux and actress Julie Tan.

The competition is in its 21st year and it’s still going strong. The TNP New Face 2013 finals will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2013, from 7pm at Takashimaya Square where this year’s 20 finalists will bring their A-game to the runway.

This year’s winner will walk away with $10,000 cash and an exclusive feature in Her World.
