Children from across Suffolk are being given the chance to become catalogue models for a top brand this week.

Boden has launched a casting call for boys and girls of all ethnicities aged between three and 11 to be involved in its latest catalogue shoot.

Karen Everett, director of Screen Suffolk which is helping with the casting call, said: “Boden is looking for local children who aren’t with an agency, as well as those who are, for their latest catalogue, which is going to be photographed in Suffolk.

“It’s a brilliant opportunity for families who’ve always thought their children look great, but haven’t joined an agency.

To enter, submit a couple of photos taken within the last few weeks, with the child free of make-up, hats or sunglasses to this email. Pictures do not need to be professionally taken.

Agency and non-agency youngsters are welcome.
