We have put together the most ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ by our models and influencers. Kindly go through these ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ for any queries or questions you might have about Box Models Agency Nigeria.

Models

Do you do Open Casting or Walk-Ins?

We do organise an open model casting at least biannually for new and experienced models. If you would like to be scouted without having to attend one of our organised castings, we do allow walk-ins for experienced models every Wednesday (excluding public holidays) between 12 noon and 2 pm at our Lagos (Ikeja) office. Any walk-ins outside this hours and day will be rescheduled for the next walk-in day. We do advice new models to attend an Open Casting Event instead of a walk-in so as to undergo our Model Training and Development Program. Walk-Ins are only opened to experienced models.

What happens during and after Model Walk-Ins?

During walk-ins, you will be briefly interviewed by a Model Scout who will advise you on any opportunity available within the agency. If you tick all the boxes for an opportunity, then you will be informed straight away and the next process.
