The Fotophreak Model of the Week

The Top 20 Under 25 Models in Kenya is the new, fresh, vibrant and most promising modeling competition in Kenya right now. Fotophreak Magazine seeks to breath more life in the Kenyan Fashion and modeling industry, by highlighting and bringing to the front row all the models who are 25 and below, and are already making moves and headlines in the Kenyan modeling space.

The Fotophreak Research Team has established that more and more young people are venturing into the modeling industry for different reasons, and some have even become full time models. In a bid to appreciate the effort and work being put in by these models to pay their bills, while at the same time sustaining the Kenyan fashion industry, we created the Top 20 Under 25 Models in Kenya competition which is an upgrade from last years’ top 20 Under 20 models in Kenya competition.

  2. Post a full length picture of your favorite male or female model and say why you are nominating them/ (ensure the model is 25 years or below!)
    You must be nominated by another person and not yourself. It can be a friend, family, a colleague or even an acquaintance.
