Anna came out on top in the 'New Faces' contest held by Novosibirsk model agency Russian Shine. 

There were a dozen finalists from 300 aspiring contestants and apart from the London prize, Anna won a year of free education at any university of the world, a contract with Moscow scouting centre Rush models, a cash prize of 20,000 roubles, and a Samsonite suitcase.

She will fit her travelling in around her schedule at School Number 11 in Novosibirsk.

'The win was really hard - all the girls were beautiful, and each was worthy of victory,' she said. 

'At the same time, it didn't feel like a competition because the atmosphere in our team was very friendly and warm. 

'Now I would like to go first to London, and work in other European countries. But until then, I will combine study with work. 

'I am very pleased to have won, and I will do everything to become a professional model'.

She is so young, I pray she is not exploited in this modelling industry as so many girls have been.
