NYC may be different but ours is 41"- 46", no children between 47"- 51" (for little kids).

That sounds about right shipstress! My DD was 49" for a while so we were never able to go! Glad she decided to grow this year

We were there too and it was really quick. When we were leaving there was a little line waiting to check-in, but not terrible.
Any idea when more info will be provided since the callback isn't until March? With a callback scheduled do kids get put on hold or not? Thanks in advance, still trying to navigate this whole process as we are pretty new!!

Holds do not go out until after the callback. Last year H&M used the call back to fit most of the kids, but it appears they also have a fitting.. so not quite sure how it works.

I think it was 52 inches and up..don't know the rest. last year we went as well and my dd was too tall and too small for the bigger girls. this year she was just right. LOL!

Hi all! I have been reading the boards for about 6 months now and this is my first post. I really enjoy hearing about other peoples experiences at their auditions. There are always new things to learn and new situations to experience. We were there on Thursday morning and waited about an hour and forty five minutes. Very surprised to hear that they are seeing 1200 kids for this. That seems like a lot of kids for a print ad. I wonder how many kids they actually book? So many wonderful choices when we were there. Any experiences to share from people who have worked for H&M? Good luck to all who attended. We met several nice moms and kids and it would be fun to work together. I wonder if they ever use different ages of kids together in their print work?

Specs were 40"-46" and then 52" - ?. There were also baby specs, but I don't know them. My son worked for H&M a lot in the past but is now too tall for the little kids and too short for the big kids. Good luck everyone, H&M is a fun job!

Hi, all. We are scheduled for Friday in NY. This is our first print audition. What can we expect? Do they "interview"? Take pics.? Measure, only? And will we be given the info. there about callbacks, etc.? GLTA!!

The 1st shoot callbacks are March 24th & 25th. The 1st shoot is March 26th-29th.
The 2nd shoot callbacks are May 6th with shoot dates May 7th-11th.
Maybe someone can clarify which shoot date is the hip hop shoot.
I had two girls attend, the height for the "little girl" was 40-46". The "big girl" was 52-60". My oldest measured 156cm and they took her back without hesitation...She isn't that tall, so I assume the measuring stick wasn't correct. I hope that measurement doesn't hold her back!

Last year my dd and a group of girls were all too tall and too small for the older group, however, they took them all back anyway!
