The 2020 Ghana Models Awards scheme is slated to come off at the Swiss Spirit Alisa Hotel in Accra on November 14.
This year’s event is the third of its kind being organised by Shades & Powder to honour excellence in the modelling and fashion industries.
The founder of the awards, Jerry Wonder, said the award would celebrate talents of Ghanaian and non-Ghanaian descent who have excelled in the modelling industry in Ghana and abroad, including legends of the profession.
“Special awards will also be given to models who have devoted their time, effort and resources to the development of their immediate society through community service and leadership initiatives,” he added.
Earlier, international top model Grace Quaye was announced as the face of the Ghana Models Awards 2020.
According to the organisers, she was chosen based on her fast-rising international career after emerging as a home-grown Ghanaian model and her leadership drive. She was further described as the future of modelling in Ghana.
The Ghana Models Awards is the only annual event in Ghana which celebrates models working in Ghana as well as Ghanaian models working abroad.
This year’s event will employ very strict Covid-19 safety precautionary measures as part of the fight against the deadly disease. The organisers have, therefore, limited the seating capacity to a reduced number of half the event hall size.
