The project is to build a nice looking, professional modeling site, where models and photographers (or agencies) can contact each other. The site can be based on one of the scripts or CMSes (like phpFox, Joomla, etc.), however, in this case it should be clear that chosen script or CMS is a well known and well supported one.
You should mention you choice and provide a simple prove of why it's suitable for this project on bidding.
One of the basic requirements for the site - it should be easily expandable in any ways - new languages (currently primal and the only language is English), new modules, new registration fields, new user types etc, etc).
We also expect a minimum of documentation along with the development. It should be clear for future developers to understand the structure of the site, modules' functions, etc.
Please provide us your portfolio of previous developments.
Quick search (country, gender, age) and extended search.
Top models, top models by country, model of the week/month sections.
More adds for non-paid members.
On user registration and Search sections there should be an option which units to use - Imperial or Metric. Automatic conversion should be made between the two.
On-line payment through PayPal, MoneyBookers and other electronic wire transfer accounts.
Site should be well optimized for better search engine rankings.
Site should have a front-end login for users and back-end login for administering website.
Both models and professionals have their Portfolios. Images in portfolio are grouped according to Image Category (like in [url removed, login to view]). Example of categories is - beauty, portraits, glamour, fashion, etc, etc.
There should be 4 types of users:
+Models (Free version, Paid version)
+Professionals - currently Photographers, later agencies and other types could be added (Plus version, Pro version)
+Registered users (Free version, Paid version)
Models & Professionals (applied to both)
+basic profile resume
+able to submit predefined number of pictures in their portfolio (for example - five in each category)
+messaging system to communicate between site members (other models, professionals)
+profile page with a SEO url
+Photographers can recommend models and vice versa. Then on model's page should be a section 'Recommended by photographers' and a list of photographers with their short message about recommended model. Similarly, on photographers profile should be a section 'Recommended by models'.
+option for page to be private or public
+have a section 'Fan Page'. Besides other features there is a fans list - i.e. a list of registered users who added this model as a favorite model in their profiles.
+Buttons on profile - LIKE & DISLIKE. All users can vote for model. Model profile has a field for 'likes-dislikes' - eg. 100% means that all voters pressed 'LIKE'.
+should be a Free version and a Paid version with additional features for more images, video uploads etc.
+There's no free version for professionals. Should be a Plus version and a Pro version. Versions vary in number of pictures to have in their portfolios, and how many pictures they can access on model's site (example: 5 in each category versus all).
+Models' contact details are accessible for all professionals (both Plus and Pro).
+Can search through the models' and professionals' database but have limited access to model's portfolio.
+Can vote for the models, send messages etc.
+Leave commends on models Fan Page.
+Have basic profile where they can add favorite models (become fan of...)
+There's a Paid version for registered users that allows them to see all the images and video but not contact details.
Can search through the models' and professionals' database but are limited to seeing only very limited information.
