Jason Shepard, founder of Australia’s Elite Fitness Model International and one of the three judges for this years contest commented “The quality of the entries for 2017 made this year the closest yet, but we are confident we have selected two great talents for this years contest and I’m really looking forward to the shoot next week”.

The photo shoot for the winners is scheduled for Wednesday 4th October in the Gold Coast and with several secret locations booked it promises to be an awesome day. We promise to post some exclusive behind the scenes videos and photos as the day unfolds, so keep an eye on the WNiF Facebook page for updates.


This year, ‘People’s Choice’ winner was Lauren Davidson from Hobart in Tasmania. From all 12 finalists, Lauren was the only one to hit over 300 ‘Likes’, ending with a total of 435 ‘Likes’ at midnight last night. Lauren, who works at the Diamond Dance School in Kingston, Tasmania, was the 2017 Miss Teen Australia Runner Up!
