The maiden edition of the Ghana Models Awards Juniors honoured children who have excelled in the modelling in Ghana.
Speaking at the awards gala held at ”The Burg” in Accra, Mr. Jerry Wonder Sampson, Founder of the Ghana Models Awards Junior, said the purpose of the event was to ensure more talents in modelling were nurtured to help produce professional models in future.
He added that the selection was based on individual professional work done in 2021, while also acknowledging amateurs in the modelling industry.
“By encouraging the younger ones into professional modelling, we are nurturing new and promising talents to fill in the positions of the adult models when they exit.
“We are drawing more attention to the profession and generating interest among young ones, and this would gradually increase the players in the industry,” he said.
The topmost awards on the day were the Model Agency of the Year, the Overall Male and Female Models of the Year, which went to Godzy Modelling Agency, Elijah Boasiako of “Loret Kids and Teens” and Maame A.S. Aboagye of the Godzy Modelling Agency, respectively.
