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.
