Application Steps:


1. Work with your legal guardian to submit an application at www.mysticartpictures.com. Click on Now Casting, then Project Runway Junior. Your guardian over the age of 18 must create a profile with our website and complete the questionnaire with you. Please answer all questions honestly and accurately to the best of your ability.


2. Submit your virtual portfolio to projectrunwayjr@gmail.com.


3. Submit a 3 to 5 minute personal video to projectrunwayjr@gmail.com. Here are some guidelines for you to make your masterpiece:
• At the beginning of your video, include a personal introduction, including your name, age, where you are from, and your passion for fashion.
• Let your real, authentic personality shine through. Let us see and hear your passion for fashion.
• Describe your personal design style and your areas of expertise, i.e. activewear, avant-garde, eveningwear, etc.
• Brag about your design goals and achievements, including your experience with sewing, sketching, patterns, ruching, and any other skills you may have;
-Tell us how many pieces you have designed from sketch to finished designs; 
-Tell us what designers you aspire to be like and whose styles inspire you.
-Tell us who inspired you to pursue your passion for fashion.
• Show us your three best designs (front, side, and back).
• Tell us why you need Project Runway Junior to achieve your goals, and anything else you think we need to know.
• Relax, have fun, and most importantly let your true personality shine through. Please remember that this is a movie starring you; you should be in front of the camera talking to it, not acting as the director behind the scenes.
• You are not being judged on the professionalism of this video, but please double-check before sending it to us that we can hear you (i.e. the tape/camera had working sound when you filmed) and we can see you (i.e. there was enough light while you were filming that we can see you clearly).
• We recommend filming this video in an area where you typically work on your designs, or have your designs and equipment displayed.
• The most important thing is your personality shines through and you make this your own!
• Be creative, have fun, and allow your talent, personality, and passion to come to life.
• All videos must be submitted via private links through either YouTube or Vimeo. We will not be accepting DVDs or any other physical copies.


4. Attend a semi-finalist interview, if you are able.
• If you are selected as a semi-finalist, you will be invited to attend in-person interviews. Interview dates and locations will be released soon.

If you have any questions, please reach out to MysticArt Pictures and the Project Runway Junior casting team at projectrunwayjr@gmail.com or 323.536.9944.
