MADISON magazine partners with Reel Management

Updated: Apr 3, 2019

We are so excited to announce that due to the success of the first ever Model Search Competition for 2019, we have partnered up with MADISON magazine to create beautiful fashion stories for our kids and teens.

Our 2019 winner is 13 year old Sophie from South East Queensland. Sophie wowed the judges on Sunday 24th February at the Southport Yacht Club on the Gold Coast in front of hundreds.

Judson has been making all the right moves since completing the Junior Models course a few months ago at Reel Management. Judson knows about branding and has developed his own personal style which was on display last Sunday. His performance in finals for the category 8-12 year olds, still has the judges buzzing.

We asked Judson a few questions to give his new found friends and followers a little more insight to his life and thoughts:

1. Who are you and where do you come from? My name is Judson Gainfort, I’m 12 years old and I was born in Melbourne, Victoria.

2. Who is your favourite actress, model and icon?

3. Why did you enter the Reel Management Model Search?

4. If you weren't crowned the winner, what would you be doing next?

5. What do you hope to achieve in your year as the Model Search winner..? Would you travel? Launch your own brand? Keep working on your skills?

Judges on the day were photographers Elsa Dillon and Warren Harvey, along with models Jane Sagi and Nathan Howe, also an actor. These four professionals all know the pressure of performing for clients and in front of huge crowds. The expectation to deliver quality images when big budgets are at stake is where you see the professionals separate from the amateurs. Elsa Dillon has over 25 years experience as a photographer and has graced the pages of iconic magazines such as Vogue, Marie Claire, Elle and over 300 international publications for the US, UK, Paris, Milan and way too many editorials to mention here.

Sophie and Judson are about to be featured on the cover with a BTS article and exclusive in the upcoming issue of MADISON magazine. We are so thrilled for the kids from the Gold Coast and can't wait to show you the results. If you haven't checked out MADISON before, you can find them on
