Australia's Next Top Model will begin the search for its next modelling superstar later this month.

The Foxtel reality show will begin production on its ninth season, and first without judge Charlotte Dawson, who died earlier this year.

Jennifer Hawkins will return as host and judge to be joined once again by designer Alex Perry, model Didier Cohen and a weekly guest judge.

"The whole team on the show has been deeply affected by the loss of Charlotte earlier this year. We feel the series will never be the same without her and in 2015 we will welcome a special guest judge each week to join the judging panel as, in our minds, Charlotte is irreplaceable," Foxtel executive director of television Brian Walsh said.

"This will give the girls unique insight and varied guidance each week, while honouring our friend Charlotte."

Perth has produced one winner, North Fremantle's Tahnee Atkinson, while other modelling stars to emerge from the series include Montana Cox and Alice Burdeu.

The audition tour wraps up at Garden City Booragoon from 10am on August 24.
