WHO WE NEED
We’re looking for skilled Triathletes who compete in Ironman or similar races (swimming, cycling, and running).
We need Pacific-Northwest based triathletes of all genders and ethnicities. You should be 18+ and willing to appear on-camera in a commercial photo + video shoot.
We prefer to cast people who have strong racing experience and are currently in training. Bonus points if you’ve raced Ironmans!
But don’t worry! You are still eligible to apply if you have only raced in half/olympic/sprint triathlons, or are still in training but haven’t completed your first race yet. And we understand that many races have been canceled this year. We care more about your skill and personality than your race times, so please apply if you consider yourself a triathlete!
You don’t need any professional modeling experience to apply. All identities (races, sizes, abilities, genders, sexualities, religions, ethnicities, countries of origin, and more) are welcome.
We are committed to increasing representation of racial diversity in media, BIPOC are especially encouraged to apply.
