3-Strike Policy

Our standards are not based on height or experience, they are based on your ability to act as a professional. If you communicate properly, show up on time, and contribute a positive attitude to the community, you should enjoy a positive experience with Chance. If you do something that we don’t like, we’ll tell you. In order to enforce an encouraging environment at Chance, we practice a 3-Strike participation policy as follows:

  1. 1st strike: You will be issued a warning, notifying you what you did wrong
  2. 2nd strike: You will be prohibited from participating in Chance for a period of time
  3. 3rd strike: You will be prohibited from participating in all future Chance and Active Entertainment events

Registration Process

  1. You receive the link to this site
  2. You read all of the information and submit the form at the end of this page
  3. During your in-person casting, we will double-check your paperwork, have you walk for our resident Runway Coach, and take a quick photo to match up with your paperwork. You will be casting during one of our monthly events, so we encourage you to stick around, shoot with participating photographers, and experience how the event works.
  4. We will process your information into our Model Database, and you will officially be registered
  5. You will begin receiving information about upcoming opportunities from model@chanceafashion.com
  • Read the emails and respond accordingly to the ones you are interested in. (Simply ignore the ones you are not.)
  • Chance is monthly. Due to the large number of Artist’s we work with, we also occasionally have one-off events, group photo shoots, and other gigs that we can refer Models to. The more involved you get, the more people you will meet, the more you will develop your talent, and the more opportunities you can create through your participation.
  • We do our best to be as informative as possible with each opportunity. If at any point you decide you would like to be removed from the Model Database, simply request us to do so.
  • If at any time you have a concern with any Chance or Active event, NOTIFY A STAFF MEMBER. We have several resident supporters you can talk to about any issues, please take advantage of your ability to contribute to the ongoing development of this event.
