Competition News Dec 18
The Top 15 at the Elite Model Look World Final is decided by a jury, but the public are invited to vote for their favourite Finalist to win the People's Choice Award. The Winner for the boys was Mustafa from India. We catch up with him to find out what it was like to win.

What was it like to win People’s Choice Award at the Elite Model Look World Final?

When I was announced as the People’s Choice Winner I was so happy because that show how much people love me and showed their support to me! I want to thank so the people who voted for me, who showed the love and support all the way to the journey - thank you so much! Without your support, this could be possible.

Tell us about competing in the Elite Model Look World Final 2017!

It was the greatest achievement I have ever have ever done! Representing my country on an international level and competing with 36 other countries is a very proud moment for me. Before the show, when I was getting ready to go on the stage, I was a little nervous but very excited, I just wanted to walk on the catwalk and give my best.

What was your own highlight of the Bootcamp?

The thing which I loved about the Bootcamp was meeting new people, making new friends, as well as the training sessions, the photoshoots and interview I had and that was just amazing moment that I’m never going to forget. And now I’m seriously missing it! Throughout the Bootcamp I made a lot of friends like Mircea from Romania , Andrja from Croatia and my best friend was Stephen from Nigeria because he was my room partner and the funniest guy.

How did you find out about Elite Model Look?

I participated in Elite Model Look India in 2016 but I didn’t get past the regional casting, and that motivated me to try again. So this year, when I heard on social media that Elite Model Look was happening again in India, I tried again at the regional casting, the national casting, and I got into the National Final. Competing on that level was like a dream come true, and finally, when I won the elite model look India, that was the best memory I’ll ever have.

How did you celebrate when you got home?

As soon as I reached home I spend my time with my family and friends. A lot of people came home to congratulate me for winning the People's Choice Award. It was an amazing experience, I will never forget it.
