Next Face Of Sundown: Rufus

24 August 2013

Remember the Next Models Selfie Competition that we told you about a few weeks back? Well get excited because Next Models have announced a fabulous winner that we wanted to introduce to you. The modelling agency came up with the ingenious idea to scout both guys and girls through Instagram and the recent selfie craze, and the competition was successful indeed. A massive congratulations to Rufus for winning the male crown as his strong cheekbones and photogenic features caught the judges' eye. Picked out of 5,000 uploads, the 18 year old couldn't believe his luck when he found out he won.

We are thrilled that Next Model Management discovered the Brighton based cutie, and are excited to meet him next weekend at the Sundown Festival. Boys by Girls will be bringing you all the juicy stuff from the festival, where we will be teaming up with the Next Models scouting team to document all that goes down at the event.

Sundown Festival is taking place in Norwich from Friday 30th August to Monday the 2nd of September, so be sure to stay tuned to hear all about our adventures and festivities (see what we did there). We can't wait to head down and just hope the weather Gods will be on our side for this one!
