Cover Models Wanted!
Fukuoka Now is looking for both male and female people of all nationalities and ages to appear on our cover. Photos will be taken by a professional photographer either in a studio or on location somewhere in Fukuoka City. This is unpaid, however you will be given copies of the photo data for your own personal use – and of course you’ll become a little famous here in Fukuoka! Candidates must currently be in the Fukuoka area.

To apply fill out this form and send a recent, clear photo of yourself to this email address: We will confirm receipt of each application, however we cannot promise to use everyone.
