When submitting your information to websites and talent agencies it’s imperative that  you introduce yourself in an  eye catching way. Along with promo photos and/or package most  companies will ask  you to submit a  bio. Your  bio is what   tells  people  who you are and what you  have accomplished in your  field of expertise.

Your  bio will more than likely be  compared to that of many  others  as whoever goes through the  auditing process weeds out the best of the best. If you bio is  boring or less than full, it  may end up in the reject pile. Showcase yourself in the best way possible.

The  first  thing to remember is to IDENTIFY YOUR  TARGET AUDIENCE. If you are submitting  to be a model in a magazine your bio should  include any training you’ve had as a model, any  major opportunities you had a chance to  be a part of, any  videos, publications or fashion shows you have been a part of and your hobbies and  interests. It is better your bio is a little wordy than sparse.

Another  key  point is  to  WRITE IN THIRD PERSON. Your  bio should read  as if someone else wrote it, even if you carefully  thought out every word yourself. Introduce yourself as someone  else  would. Your bio should start with your name at the beginning of the first sentence followed  by  what  you are  known  for. IE: Sexy Sapphire is a former model and  writer from Baltimore.

Have you  been a part of  any major productions, a band, a modeling group anything where  you  performed or received accolades? This is where  you LIST YOUR  NOTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS. Showcase   those skills and let people know you’re more than a title, you’re action.

SHOW YOUR HUMAN SIDE. Its important that balance is  a part of our lives AND our bio. People need to see that you’re not all work but have a little fun  in your life too. Share a few hobbies and interest or charities that  you are a member  of.

DON’T  LEAVE THEM  WANTING  MORE. This  is  not  a time to  just  tell people  how  awesome you are but also a way  of letting them  know how to  book you  and  all your awesomeness. Don’t forget  to tell them  where to find you. Close  with your  website or social media information and  your contact email.
