The Darwin Turf Club has today launched their search for the 2017 Ambassador, to represent the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival on the local, national and international stage.
Not simply the face of the celebrated Carnival, the Ambassador’s role is to raise the profile of the Northern Territory’s largest social and sporting event, receiving unmatched exposure through media, fashion, modeling and networking opportunities.
“2017 is to be themed “The Carnival of Colour” and we are seeking a bright and vibrant personality to embrace the role”, said Darwin Turf Club Marketing & Sponsorship Manager Laura Tucker.
“The position is like no other in Darwin, it affords the Ambassador the chance to raise their public profile and that of the Carnival through various, photo shoots, media interviews, race day presentations and social events,” she said.
As Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival Ambassador, the successful applicant will also take on the responsibility of showcasing the fantastic designs, accessories and millinery that the local NT Fashion Industry has to offer.
Outgoing 2016 Ambassador Leanne Scott-Toms thrived in her role as the face of the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival. “I am incredibly proud of my time representing one of the Territory’s most renowned attractions”, Ms Scott Toms said.
“I started in the role, excited to play a part in the numerous events throughout Carnival, and by the end of my time as Ambassador I had addressed crowds of thousands, networked with unbelievable new contacts, showcased the Territory’s finest fashion wares and of course became very adept at managing 500kg horses!”, she said.
“If you have been considering applying, I cannot recommend the role enough. It’s a chance to personally and professionally develop in both a supportive and fun filled environment”.
