Could you model for the Cup?

WHO wouldn't want their name up in lights and to get the VIP treatment at Ipswich's biggest day out?

The Queensland Times and Ipswich Turf Club are searching for the new faces of the 2012 Ipswich Cup.

QT marketing manager Amy O'Sullivan said it was "a tantalising opportunity".

"We are looking for a minimum of three and a maximum of five friends to be the new faces, and you and your friends must be at least 18 and preferably a combination of male and female," she said.

"Your photos will be on all of the marketing for the 2012 cup, including two months on the massive billboard out the front of the turf club.

"There will also be VIP entry for you and your mates to the Ipswich Cup, food, drinks and the kind of access a VIP deserves.

"We're really excited to be involved with the turf club in helping promote the cup in such a totally awesome way."

Ipswich Turf Club general manager Brett Kitching said the competition was about taking the status of the Ipswich Cup to a new level.

"It's a different way of getting the word out about the Ipswich Cup," he said.

"Given that it's the biggest and best provincial race meeting in Australia, we're looking for a promotional campaign to match that status.

"We have the highest attended provincial race meeting in Ipswich and when you think there are 2000 provincial meetings every year, that's really something.

"We're looking for groups of fun, exiting people from Ipswich and beyond - a mixture of male and female - who can tell us in 25 words or less why they should be the faces of the Ipswich Cup.

"We're one of the only tracks around attracting a majority of Generation Y and we're going to keep doing that. It's all about keeping ahead of the game."
