Miami Swim Week! The six Swim Search finalists will be flown down to Miami for the weekend to participate in this event at the W South Beach.

The winner will be announced at a special event hosted in New York City as the first rookie of the 2024 issue. The event will be hosted within the first two weeks of September (exact date TBD). At a later date, the winner will be flown to a destination with the SI Swimsuit team for a photo shoot. They will then be featured in the 2024 issue as one of our rookies alongside our amazing SI Swimsuit models and talent. That edition will be published in May 2024.
