It's sink or swim at mega casting call

It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it

More than 150 bikini babes -- and a smattering of blokes in budgie smugglers -- will turn out at Surfers Paradise today to answer a casting call for models at this month's Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival.

A three-judge panel of stylists and choreographers will cast their expert eyes over the field, and organisers are claiming it will be the biggest-ever swimwear casting call.

Only 30 will make the final cut for the inaugural festival, which will include a Guinness Book of Records attempt for the world's biggest-ever bikini parade.

Festival director Leanne St George said the girls who made the grade would be great ambassadors for Queensland.

"Swim fashion is different to catwalk or high-end fashion," she said.

"We're looking for toned, healthy, fit models who are vivacious and curvaceous.

"We're after wholesome, pretty girls."

Today's auditions will take place at the Surfers Paradise Marriott.

Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival runs from November 28-December 1.
