Founder and Executive Director of the Ghana Models Awards, Jerry Wonder Sampson, said this year's edition was successful because a lot went into it.

“This year, we are glad that we received a lot of response from modelling agencies. This shows that we are doing something worth talking about. We have really worked hard in promoting modelling as a respectable profession in Ghana and now, it seems to have caught the attention of some industry stakeholders on the international front,” he said.
