Illustrado Faces Batch 10 – Powered by Nikon
Model & Photographer Collaboration

Illustrado Faces Batch 10 Powered by Nikon

Are you the next FACE of Illustrado? Or are you the PHOTOGRAPHER who could capture Illustrado’s next charming Pinoy of the season?


Illustrado celebrates Filipino beauty!

We are inviting photographers and Filipinos, both male and females, on a collaborative project devoted to promote the Pinoy’s natural charm.

Send us your superbly shot BLACK & WHITE portraits in high-resolution through the entry form here (See below). Selfie pics will not be accepted.  Max file size is 2MB.

Qualifier images will be posted on our Facebook page for voting.  The best images – 1) Illustrado’s Choice and, 2) People’s Choice (the one with the most votes), will be published in Illustrado Magazine’s Quarterly Special Edition, as well as on our website and digital magazine. Apart from the chance of getting your work or your picture published, winners – both model and photographer, and for both People’s Choice and Illustrado’s Choice – will win prizes from Nikon.


All models should be Filipino or should have Filipino heritage. We welcome entries from the UAE and other Gulf countries.  However, since the prize sponsors are based in the emirates, winning entries outside the country will not be able to receive prizes – unless an authorized UAE-contact is appointed to claim the prize.  If you accept this condition, do join.

This batch of Illustrado Faces is open to both males and females.

Photos should be HEAD SHOTS (portrait/vertical orientation), NOT full body or half-body shots.

Photos should depict natural Filipino charm – i.e. no heavy or stylized make-up or artificial-looking contact lenses.

Models should not wear any hats or any headgear or accessories that will cover the face.

Post processing should be kept to a minimum. We will not be accepting heavily Photoshopped images.

In respect of the local cultural sensitivities, models should not be dressed in overly revealing clothes or have a provocative projection.

Photos sent to us will only be used for the purpose of this project.

Photos should not be watermarked with any name/logo. However, photos will be duly attributed to the relevant photographer within the page layout.

Illustrado reserves the right to exclude inappropriate entries or those that do not make the cut.  Illustrado reserves the right to disqualify entries where Autoliking, “sock puppets” or any other spurious methods of gathering votes have been utilized.  Illustrado’s choice of winners is final.  By submitting your entry, you confirm to abide by these rules and regulations.

Please include in your e-mail full contact details (tel., e-mail, website, if any) for both the photographer and models.

For enquiries you may call us at: +971-4-365 4547 or e-mail us at
