Back for its fourth year, the biggest ever youth focused UK and ROI model and talent search returns, giving selected winners a chance to become the next face of JD for 2015.

Last year, the Face of JD Street Team undertook a lengthy scouting mission across the UK in search of talented young people with unique style and swagger, which saw over 11,000 hopefuls apply with the lucky few individuals appearing on billboards, bus sides, press and in JD stores across the UK and internationally.

This year the search continues, JD is looking for real people, with real attitude and confidence alike! If you think you have what it takes, download the JD app and upload a recent photo of yourself with an explanation of what you’re into and what you’re most passionate about. That’s not all… Once you have applied, get all of your friends and family to vote for you online.

The 20 most voted for entrants via Facebook will be invited to join the final 355 shortlisted entries at casting days throughout May in five cities across the country, which will include having your picture taken by a professional photographer, and live performances from DJs and entertainers, with goodie bag giveaways throughout the day.

Be sure to also keep a look out for JD’s Street Teams who will be seen scouring the streets across nine cities throughout April: Dublin, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow and London with talent scouts and film crews looking for hopefuls to enter the competition. Full details of where they will be can be found on JD’s Twitter and Facebook pages and at

Judges will select winners from each casting event to be the next face of JD, inviting a final shortlist to become models for the 2015/2016 JD main campaigns, so the question is, R U JD?

Catch the R U JD scouts in Manchester (23, 24 and 25 April), Bristol (26 April), Cardiff (26 April), Dublin (30 April and 1 May), London (1, 2 and 3 May) and Liverpool (2 and 3 May).
