If the sizes have not changed you should still add a note to your online profile to say checked and unchanged so we know you have updated. Child accounts not updated for 2 months will no longer be submitted – child accounts not updated for more than 3 months constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of your account on our service
It is also your responsibility to keep these details up to date, failure of the model not fitting the description provided by ModelMe Management may result in the cancellation of a booking without payment.

Should you or your child be accepted to join ModelMe Management, you will be asked to cover the cost of an individual, fully customisable profile page for you or your child, which is currently £30 for one year for the casting division, which covers commercials, TV, film, stage. If you would prefer you or your child to just be submitted for photographic modelling only, this fee will be taken from you or your child’s first earnings. This is in compliance with the BIS current legislation states that an upfront work finding service fee cannot be charged to those working as a photographic model only. You will have the option when registering, which work you prefer, if you choose photographic only we will take £30 from your first booking, if you choose “TV, Film & Stage” you will be registered for ALL SERVICES for 30 days, if after this 30 days you wish to continue with “TV, Film, Stage & Other” on the 12 month contract we request a payment of £30 to be paid for the remaining 11 months. If you decide at any point within the 30 days you only wish to have “Photographic Work” we will downgrade your profile and NO UPFRONT PAYMENT will be requested, the £30 payment will be taken from your first photographic earnings. This is in compliance with new “Promotional fees for performers and entertainment workers” as stated on the GOV.UK website.
ModelMe Management allows a 14 day “cooling off” period on all our contracts. You have 14 days from the date you return your signed contract to cancel and receive a full refund of all monies paid. Cancellation must be received no later than day 14 and must be received in writing. After this time no refunds will be issued.
By accepting these terms and conditions it is understood that ModelMe Management does not purchase the services of a Model or Performer. ModelMe Management act as an intermediary between Model/Performer and the end user for which ModelMe Management is entitled to receive commision.
At the bottom of each profile there is a show log link – clicking on this will show you the jobs you/your child has been submitted for. This only includes briefs that are not submitted via another medium (i.e Spotlight and Casting Networks). This information is confidential and commercially sensitive and is not to be shared – anyone who shares this information is liable to have their/their child’s account immediately terminated.
We ask that our clients have photos taken by a professional photographer – this is so the photos we put on model cards and submit to casting directors show the models and actors at their best, it creates a good image of both the agency and the client.
We don’t stipulate who takes the photos so you can use a local photographer to yourselves, we just ask that pictures taken are PORTRAIT orientated and that there is at least 1 head and shoulder and 1 full length shot. We do have agency recommend photographers who provide special deals and discounts to ModelMe clients, visit the website page to see who and where they are. We require 4 photos to complete your model card. Photographs containing photographers watermarks cannot be accepted. You can join without professional photos but you will be required to provide these to the agency within 4 weeks of signing a contract. Without these we will not be able to submit you or your child for work after the initial 4 week period.
You are responsible for letting the agency know if you/your child is unavailable for castings for ANY reason. This should be done via the notes section of your online profile. If you/your child is offered a casting and you decline the casting and have not noted the unavailability on the system this will be classed as a “Strike” if you/you child incurs 3 strikes within a 12 month period ModelMe Management reserves the right to terminate the representation with immediate effect and with no refund for any services paid. You will be notified of any “Strikes” incurred in writing (usually via email).
It is usual that you will receive payment within 90 days. This will be issued via bank transfer or cheque in the name of the person who completed the job. In the case of children payment is via cheque only and will be issued in the childs name so please ensure they have a bank account that this can be paid into. Under no circumstances will payment be made in any other name.
If you require a cheque to be reissued there will be a deduction of an administration fee of £10 to cover the “stop cheque” charge on the initial cheque and time and postage to issue the replacement.
We are a “Non Sole” agency which means you are free to also have contracts with other agents/agencies. We do not restrict who you can or cannot be with however other agencies/agents may have restrictions of their own. It is your responsibility to check with other agents/agencies that you are able to have multiple representation. If we obtain a job or casting we will claim any associated fees/commissions from that job regardless of any other agents/agencies you or your child may be represented by.
We may terminate or suspend your account immediately, without prior notice or liability, for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation if you breach the Terms.
Upon termination by ourselves, your right to use the Service will immediately cease. If you wish to terminate your contract with ModelMe Management LTD 14 days notice in writing is required, after this time your account and any associated data will be deleted and removed from our system.
All provisions of the Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.
