NEW YORK - December 18, 2012 - Oxygen Media is asking fans to channel their inner supermodel with "The Face Challenge," launching today, on the shows' YouTube channel. This user generated contest and on-the-ground activation is taking "The Face" to the streets and online to get consumers excited and engaged in the network's highly anticipated new modeling competition series. Naomi Campbell executive produced the series and also appears as a supermodel coach; in her role as executive producer, the iconic model brought in key fashion designers, photographers, publications, products and contest partners, and created unique, real-life opportunities for the contestants. Alongside Naomi as supermodel coaches are Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha; Nigel Barker serves as the host of the show. Known for unique aspects of their modeling careers', each supermodel coach created a "call to action" video showcasing their signature moves - Naomi's "Walk," Karolina's "Look" and Coco's "Pose." Fans can submit videos emulating the supermodels for a chance to win the ultimate VIP treatment and to see their name announced as the winner during the series premiere on Tuesday, February 12, at 9pm ET/PT. Valid submissions to the contest may be featured on a Times Square billboard throughout the day of the premiere.

"The Face Challenge is another opportunity for us to continue the Oxygen brand beyond the televisions screen, surrounding viewers and allowing them to engage with 'The Face' and its unparalleled cast on a more interactive level," said Jane Olson, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Brand Strategy, Oxygen Media. "Whether fans are submitting videos to YouTube or stopping by one of our activation locations, they will have the chance to experience 'The Face' on multiple levels and win a one-of-a-kind experience."

In addition, Oxygen will feature a pop-up experience in various locations across the U.S. to give consumers the opportunity to participate in "The Face Challenge" on the ground. Fans will get enhanced treatment with a digital video shoot of their submission plus a social photo activation. The video shoot will capture the fan's modeling skill that will be submitted for the YouTube contest page and the photo activation will capture their best looks resulting in a shareable animated .GIF along with four branded photos to take with them.

The winner of the contest and two guests will get the ultimate supermodel treatment with a trip to New York City where they will receive professional hair, make-up and wardrobes styling for a photo shoot with the show's host and famed photographer Nigel Barker.
