Photo Tips

You will need to upload a picture in order to complete this registration. A current picture taken on a cellphone with a plain background and nothing obstructing the face is acceptable. Important Tip: The purpose of the photo is to help us remember you, so please do not provide photos of you wearing a hat, holding a pet, soaking wet, or with any portion of your face covered by sunglasses/goggles/facepaint/masks/etc. The person auditioning should be the only person in the photo. “Recognizable” is absolutely more important than “cute”, and being able to see your whole face is important. Also, make sure that it is a current picture, and not one from several years ago. A current school photo is a great example.

Video Tips

Make sure that we can see you in your video. There should be light on your face, you should not be backlit so that you look like a silhouette. Be sure to watch your video before you send it and make sure that it is showing the best you have to offer.
