Competition Judges

This year Currys Our Lives is delighted to welcome Lisa Snowden to the final judging panel.

Famed for being in front of the camera, Lisa has more recently taken the step behind the lens and established herself as an up and coming photographer.

Lisa will be offering her opinion on the finalists and will be present at The Mall Galleries to announce the overall winner and hand out the prizes.

Lisa Snowden

Television presenter, model, pin-up and all round girl next door, Lisa Snowdon has firmly established herself as much more than just a pretty face. As well as being one of the UK’s top models of recent years, Lisa has also carved out a successful career in television.

And 2008 is already proving to be a very busy year for the beautiful brunette. As well as hosting series 4 of Living TV’s hugely successful Britain’s Next Top Model, Lisa starred in this year’s Celebrity Apprentice on BBC1 for Sports Relief and is also a presenter on BBC2’s perennial favourite, Through The Keyhole, alongside Sir David Frost.

Having been brought up in Welwyn Garden City, Lisa studied acting and dance at the Italia Conti School of Performing Arts. At first, Lisa wanted to be a professional dancer, but, having been discovered at a club, she was quickly signed up by a leading modelling agency and instead began her highly successful modelling career.

As well as numerous fashion shoots for the likes of Vogue, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan, Lisa also starred in advertising campaigns for big brands including Mercedes Benz, Martini, Lynx, Gossard and Fabergé. It was, however, her appearance on the Kellogg’s Special K commercial that initially led to interest from TV broadcasters, enquiring about possible presenting opportunities.

Starting on MTV Select, Lisa began honing her presenting skills and has since regularly worked in both the UK and US presenting for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Five, Living TV, Fox, VH-1 and MTV. Lisa’s presenting credits include LA Pool Party (BBC), movie specials (C4), Top of the Pops (BBC), All Access (VH-1), the Oscars (VH-1) and slots on This Morning (ITV).

Lisa is also an ambassador for Breast Cancer Care having lost a family member to the disease. In this capacity, Lisa attends events organised by the charity and last year hosted their annual Pink Ball at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London. Lisa lives in Essex and as well as her TV work, continues to model and in her spare time enjoys photography and cooking.
