Mount resident Angela Bowerman is the last Kiwi model remaining in an international competition to make the cover of a magazine.

Votes and sponsorship votes have a huge impact, and Angela wants local support to make it through.

First prize is $100,000 and her photo on the cover of Jetset magazine, which targets the rich and famous, stating its targeted readership is the wealthiest one percent.

The print magazine is circulated exclusively to private airport lounges, private yachts, exclusive events and travel locations. It is selective, with advertisers to ensure it retains its target audience. It has 75,000 print readers and over 50,000 qualified subscribers to its digital magazine.

The competition is judged on the votes the models can bring in, as well as sponsors for the child cancer charity the American-based Miss Jetset Magazine cover competition is fundraising for.

Angela has made it to the top five in her group, International Group 14. To stay in with the chance of the cover girl prize, she needs votes.

“Already I've been invited to the red carpet hangar party because I got into the top 10 international group,” says Angela.

“That's a hangar party in Arizona, so I've already got my tickets to that and will pretty much be celebrating with actors, actresses, celeb models, and things like that.

“I'm the only Kiwi left and I'm going against a lot of Australians and Americans and Israeli girls. I've got a pretty high chance though – I'm coming first in my group at the moment.”

So it's all about voting.

People can vote daily for free or purchase votes which double, being matched as donations to the American child cancer charity Child B plus foundation.

This year's winner will arrive at the hangar in a private jet and be put up in a luxury hotel for a lavish three-day photo shoot. In addition to over $100,000 in cash and prizes, the winner will follow in the footsteps of Katy Perry, Halle Berry, Scarlett Johansson, and Margot Robbie, and be on the cover of Jetset Magazine.
