Akira, the superpower retailer with more than 20 locations, its own label and 59,929 likes on Facebook has partnered with Ford Models to run a nationwide model search. The company is alluring beautiful people to their Facebook page, where they can enter the contest to win a $4000 prize package and a photo shoot with celebrity photog Christian Rios and Akira's Chief Stylist Samuel Ng. The best part about this contest is that the 12 semifinalists are chosen based on how many votes they tally up--and you're allowed to vote. On April 1, Akira and Ford will sit down with the photos that boast the most 'likes' and choose a winner.
