The Mini Mode Callout is now officially closed, but we still want those of you involved with the process to be able to access our FAQ’s.
Please find these all below… do reach out at email@example.com if you have any questions!
Each model needs their own application. You can create this in the kid’s tab on your account. Please make this as up to date as possible.
Once you’ve created your kid profile, you need to apply for the show!
Head over to the Audition tab on your account where you can apply for the Friday and Saturday show. Different rules apply depending on your age, and you’re welcome to apply for both days (this is in fact, preferred) but under 5’s will ultimately only be able to walk in one show.
Please make sure to press SUBMIT when you’re happy with your application – otherwise we will not receive it. Your application will not be marked as complete until you get a decision from us.
The first step is shortlisting, which will be announced on the 5th July. Models that have been shortlisted are not confirmed for the show yet, the final decision on models will be based on the designer sizes. Models that have been shortlisted will not need to provide any payment but will need to submit the details for their child performance licence – this includes providing us with a school permission letter, which you need to provide us with ASAP.
We will then be matching models to their designers and once this is completed, we will announce the finalists for the show. We’re aiming to announce this the soonest, but it depends on the designers. Once this has been announced, the registration and licencing fee is due.
If you want to submit more than one child, you can do so under your parent account. Each child needs their own application, images and video.
The registration fee for the show is £50 per child.
Registration for siblings
If you have more than one child accepted in the show, each additional model will have a registration fee of £25.
Please note that this is only applicable for the finalists, the children who are confirmed for the show. There is no fee when applying for the show.
Mini Mode will need to apply for a child performance licence for all children in the show, unless they are under legal school age (Nursery School or the equivalent). This is a £30 per child in addition to your registration fee. E.g. if you have 3 children in the show, the show fee is £100 for registration plus £90 for the licences.
We will give assistance to parents on UK benefits through our Mini Mode scheme so that all people can continue to be able to access the fashion show.
5 and over can apply to walk on both days and this is certainly preferred. On Saturday, there will be 2 shows and any children walking on Saturday will be walking in both shows if they are over 5.
Under 5’s are only allowed to walk in 1 show due to children’s working regulation laws – so there will be an option for them to apply for one of the 3 shows. If you can do the timings of more than one, you can select this and we will choose which show you are assigned to at a later date.
The rehearsals will be on the 7th September in London. All models must attend, unless you are coming from abroad.
The show dates are the 13th and 14th September and the venue is in London. You will be given dates and times for when you need to attend closer to the time.
You will be assigned to a zone nearer to the show date. Details about shows and rehearsals will be published on your online account.
If you need to stay in a hotel for the show, Mini Mode will provide you with a list of approved hotels for you as this is required for the licences to be approved. If you find alternative options, please be advised that for licencing approval, your hotel must have a sperate breakfast and dining facility. Hotels that offer bed and breakfast in the room will not be accepted by the borough when applying for a licence.
If you’re having issues uploading pictures, the file size may be too large – try screenshotting the image / decreasing the file size and reupload. The image limit is 8MB and 16MB for video
If you’re having issues uploading your walk, once again the file size may be too large. The file limit is 16MB. (Image format must be any of the following – .JPG, .JPEG, .PNG, .png, .GIF, .gif) (Video format – ‘mp4’, ‘MP4’, ‘wmv’, ‘AVI’, ‘avi’, ‘WMV’, ‘mov’, ‘MOV’ ) Uploading images and videos may take some time to go through, so please be patient if it doesn’t happen immediately, it might take a few minutes.
Once you’ve submitted your applications (remember – you need to send an application in for every show you want to enter) you should see it say ‘complete’ next to your submission, otherwise it hasn’t gone through. Please check this before leaving the Web App.
