America's Next Top Model - Unleash your Inner Model with Online Challenges!

Those of you who are fans of America’s Next Top Model (that will be everyone then!) will probably already know that Season 13 began with a bang last Monday. It's refreshing to see that this season is slightly different however as all the contestants are 5'7'' and under – in fact, you had to be 5’7” or under to apply, proving that the catwalk is perhaps opening up to the fact that beauty can also be found in shorter gals.

A fierce looking Tyra, once again leads the panel of judges alongside photographer Nigel Barker, modeling guru and stylist Jay Manuel and runway expert Miss J. This series the panel also welcome a weekly guest judge, notorious for being a fashionista, to help critique the aspiring next top models. (Ex-Hills star and designer Lauren Conrad is set to be the guest next week!!).

But the really exciting news is that everyone has the chance to get involved. To celebrate the new season, America's Next Top Model will be setting a series of challenges (one each week) to see if you’ve got what it takes to be a top model and style Queen.

Basically all you have to do is upload a photo or video in response to a new challenge set each week running from 11th January until 17th March. Expert judges from LIVING and ASOS (including Zeba Lowe – the head of styling for ASOS magazine) will then choose a winner each week who will get their mittens on £100 worth of ASOS vouchers. Winners will also be broadcast at the end of each episode of ANTM on LIVING.

There will be 9 challenges in total and one big fabulous fashionable grand prize for the person who has completely wowed the judges in true ANTM style. This person will star in their very own ANTM themed photo shoot styled by ASOS, get an exclusive invite to the ASOS season preview and bag a tailored piece from the new season’s collection.

The challenges are geared towards showing off an array of modeling and styling talents including striking the best pose, getting the best look with the use of an accessory and a makeover challenge. The site also provides helpful tips and hints to help you along your way.

So, as Tyra would say 'Look Fierce'!
