“CMTC is one of the most organized events I’ve been to. From the moment I was invited, every detail of the event was in place. If there were any changes we were alerted right away. The first night I met Audra and her staff, I knew right away I was going to enjoy myself. The entire staff and volunteers at CMTC were very accommodating and treated all the VIPs professionally. The best part of CMTC is seeing the contestants and hopefully finding future Stars in the making. The contestants seemed to have a great time and I hope their experience was beneficial. There was a lot of information to learn and take in, that’s why we as Talent Reps are there. To provide the best information and advice from our years in the bizness. And its a great way for us to find great talent. Looking forward to many events at CMTC”

“I attend several talent conventions a year and this is one of my favorite ones because as a talent agent, I can see talent from across an entire country of Canada!! It’s the only one of it’s kind to explore Canadian talent! And with technology these days, you don’t necessarily have to live in Hollywood to get a chance to audition for TV shows and movies cast there! The staff is great and the competitions all run fairly smoothly!! I’ve signed 2 talent this past year and within a week they’ve each had a major film audition!”

Advice from the Experts

Arc Talent Mangement

“GO BIG! You don’t want to look back on your performance and wish you “went for it.” Just do it. Remember to be confident, have a charming personality and a passion for acting.” 

"The modeling industry is incredibly competitive, so be prepared to hear "no" a lot more then "yes." Stay positive and try not to dwell on the outcome of every little casting or go-see - rather shake it off, understand that every model has their own unique path, and trust that your agency knows whats best for you!"
Jessie Sardina
MP Management
"Work ethic beats talent, so be ready to work. The good news is, if you love what you do, it rarely feels like work. Pay close attention to trends and educate yourself as much as possible. For singers, see who's charting, keep an eye on Spotify, and look for any opportunity to network and perform in front of audiences."

“Be yourself and shine! Relax and remember that no matter what the outcome of the competitions, everyone who participates gains valuable insight and knowledge of the modelling/entertainment industries and what an amazing opportunity to meet agents from around the World. Everyone walks away a winner!”
