Program Book

The program book contains the photos and contestant numbers of models/talent competing at CMTC. Appearing in the program book is an excellent opportunity for models/talent to be promoted to the agents, managers, and casting directors attending the convention. In fact, the “callbacks” section of the program book is designed for agents to circle the contestant numbers of models/talent that they wish to interview on the final day of CMTC; this allows agents to keep track of contestants that have piqued their interest throughout the week during competitions, workshops, and seminars. The program book also includes useful advice from industry experts as well as the names of individuals and businesses that have sponsored models/talent.


Host Hotel

Our host hotel the Toronto Airport Marriott Hotel offers an indoor heated pool, fitness centre, on-site parking, a restaurant, and a complimentary shuttle to and from Toronto Pearson International Airport. Wayside Social is the signature hotel restaurant, offering flavourful fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Just steps away from the hotel are a variety of restaurants such as steakhouses, Mediterranean, international cuisines, and more!

Theme Parties

At CMTC, we encourage making connections with like-minded individuals. Each year we host two Theme Party Dances on the Thursday night and Friday night of CMTC.   The Theme Party Dances are open to all contestants and visitors. They are not mandatory, however, they are a lot of fun if you like to dance, dress-up, and socialize! 

CMTC is proud to support Kids Help Phone through our Embody Kindness Campaign. Each year we are excited to host a Pink Party theme dance on the Thursday evening of CMTC. There is a “toonie” entrance fee at the door of the dance, with all proceeds going toward Kids Help Phone. 

CMTC 2024’s Embody Kindness Ambassadors were CMTC alumni singer & actor Jadyn Rylee and CMTC alumni actor and singer Nita-Josée Hanna. Both Jadyn and Nita returned to CMTC 2024 to support the campaign, attend the Pink Party and meet contestants and visitors. We love to see all contestants, visitors, special alumni guests, and staff show their support for an incredible cause!

On the Friday evening of CMTC, the theme of the Theme Party Dance is Fashion Crimes. We invite contestants and visitors to wear clashing colours, loud patterns and display the worst sense of style out for a night of fun.

Awards Ceremony

The CMTC awards ceremony is a night of celebration honouring participating models/talent for their many efforts and successes throughout convention weekend. Highlights include a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, the presentation of awards to top contestants, and a dance party. This is a time for models/talent and their families to reflect upon what they have learned about the business, the friends they have made at CMTC, and reaffirm their drive to achieve excellence in the modelling and entertainment industries.

Award Criteria

Below you will find the criteria associated with CMTC’s overall and grand overall awards. To ensure fairness, the highest and lowest scores are dropped, and the remaining scores are totalled to produce the contestant’s overall score. Contestants knowingly competing in a division other than the one they have registered for will be automatically disqualified at the discretion of CMTC and the judging panel. Contestants who do not abide by competition rules and regulations will be automatically disqualified at the discretion of CMTC and the judging panel. Furthermore, CMTC and the judging panel reserve the right to disqualify contestants who do not act in a professional manner or do not abide by the terms and conditions set forth in the Attendee Terms and Conditions agreement.
