It's My Time - Benetton Global Casting competition

This is simple, and brilliant - Benetton are opening up the casting of their 2010 Fall/Winter catalogue. Simply upload a photo, build a profile with more information, and let the crowd decide.

The top 100 get to appear in Benetton's new book, plus €200 to go shopping. The top 20 go to New York to model for the new catalogue. (I'd love to enter, but I'm a going to be a bit busy this year. Although there are some great pubs in New York...)

It's not totally crowdsourced - a panel of judges pick the top 20 from the 100 chosen by the crowd, so they avoid the problems that Dr Martens had a couple of years ago.

This is an excellent campaign. So far over 4,000 entries have been received.
