The open audition stage was held in several cities, including Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Medan, and Jakarta starting from early February to late March 2019. With the support from MAKE OVER, L’Oreal Professionnel, and UBS Gold, almost 800 participants entered the contest this year.
After the open audition process in selected regions, models entered the final stage of the contest to be the Face of JFW 2020, or the selected few that would appear on every campaign of this year’s Jakarta Fashion Week. This is also a crucial stage to steal the attention from regional and international scouters, since Jakarta Fashion Week also worked with Korea Model Association and Asia Model Festival.
