I don’t have any modelling experience. Should I still apply?

Yes! No experience is necessary for this shoot. You won’t need to do any specific ‘poses’ or anything, we’ll mostly be asking you to smile and look like you’re having fun (which we’re sure you will be, so that shouldn’t be too hard haha).

They will be used across a range of NSW Health communication channels including social media and website. Most images will be featured on the Play Safe, Play Safe Pro and International Student Health Hub websites.

Will I be paid?

Yes! 100%! No matter your style, sexuality, body type, ethnicity, gender, or physical ability, we’d love to work with you!

How long will the images be used for?

The images will be used for a period of three years. After that period, the Play Safe team will reach out to you each year to confirm if you are still comfortable with us using your image.

How long will I be there?

You can expect to be at the photoshoot for the full three-hour period you’re scheduled (based on your availability).

Do I get a copy of the images taken?

After the photoshoot wraps up, the photographer will process all the images and provide us with a selection of the best images from the shoot.

Once we receive these, we will send you copies of any of the images you are in. Please note that these can be used on your personal social media channels and in any modelling or talent portfolios but cannot be sold or shared for commercial gain.

What can I expect on the day?

We’ve pulled together an amazing group of professionals to help us pull off this photoshoot. You will be photographed individually, as well as in a group with other young people.

There will be loads of good food, great coffee/tea and it should be a really fun day!

Will Play Safe cover my travel and/or accommodation costs?

Why do I need to upload a photo of myself?

Because we’re organising a photoshoot, we need to get a sense of what you look like to ensure we feature people that embody the diversity of young people across NSW.

After I submit my expression of interest. What are the next steps?

Great question! Once we have received all expressions of interest, we will reach out to everyone by Friday 2 June 2023 to let them know the outcome of their submission.

Remember, we’re hoping to find people that truly embody the diversity of young people across NSW. So, if you’re not selected, it’s not because we don’t love your look, we just want to make sure that everyone is represented in some way.
