Ward was discovered in 2003 in Perth while in the audience of the "Search for a Supermodel" contest. Judges asked why she was not competing, and she explained that she was there only to watch her younger sister Gemma, who had reached the top 10 of the contest. Her sister's agency offered to represent her, and within several weeks Ward had won her first competition, the "City Face Competition."
