2021 Model of the Year

2021 Model of the Year Finalists


“I absolutely love modeling. I’m not really sure what to say, but modeling is my favorite thing to do!”

Joshua @joshuacarter247

“I’m a model, actor, and educator based in Central Virginia. In recent years I have partnered with several independent photographers and a stockphoto company.”


“I’m a military veteran and advocate for mental health awareness. I train in the gym consistently to maintain my health and overall mental wellness. I am very versatile with styles and concepts. I have a very outgoing personality.”


“I believe you can be yourself no matter what size or shape you have…all ladies are beautiful in there on way. I am very easy to get along with and I’m willing to work hard to achieve my goals. I’m easy to teach and pick up on things really easy.”

Polls open December 28, 2020 and close January 11, 2021 at 11:59pm. Voters are allowed one vote per day. All finalists are local Virginia models who have worked hard and have been community members in 2020.

The winner will be announced later in January 2021 on social media. Follow @jnphotographyva for the big announcement!

January 8, 2021 Update:

We’ve changed the polling below. Our previous click-and-go

vote utilized software that communicated with the voter’s device to verify that

the voter was only voting once per day. Unfortunately, that approach had an

error of 0.94%. That rate was more frequent in rural areas with outdated

internet systems. When a race is this close that amount could easily be the winning

vote. Therefore, we request you fill out the form below. We will do our best to

make sure each vote is validated. Because we are verifying each vote by hand, the voting chart is now unavailable. We will try to update the results every evening on Facebook,

Twitter, Instragram, and Parler from our @jnphotographyva handle. Thank you for supporting local models.
