You voted in your hundreds and now we can reveal the 25 semi finalists in the search for Face of Fife 2013.
Thank you to everyone who entered, you are all stars as without you there would be no competition at all.
With more than 1200 votes cast in total, it was the biggest public response we have ever had and it was incredibly close for those final few precious places in the top 25.
But the decision has been made, and the 25 girls featured here will now go forward to our first ever semi final round, taking place this Sunday, August 18 from 12.00-2.00 p.m. in Society in Kirkcaldy.
Our terrific 25 will parade on the catwalk that will be used for the grand final, in front of our judges and sponsors.
Not only that, all 25 will have a professional profile picture taken which will then be used in the papers for the final round of public voting to determine which 12 will be going forward to the live fashion show final in Society on Sunday, September 8.
The semi final is an informal, behind-closed-doors event, open only to the contestants and those accompanying them on the day.
Tickets for the final itself will be on sale soon.
The 25 semi finalists will be contacted directly, initially by e-mail, with further details of what is required for the semi final. Those who did not supply an e-mail address should do so immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Friday, August 16 or alternatively will be contacted by phone.
We must have confirmation that you will be attending Society on Sunday, if you do not, you may forfeit your place to one of the runners-up on the reserve list.
Voting for the final begins next week.
