Faces of the North forges aspiring actors, models
Attending Faces of the North 2014 just might be a good place to start.
The March 23 event combines the Sudbury Youth Contest — where contestants compete for titles such as Mr. or Ms. Sudbury — with competitions in disciplines such as acting, singing and modelling. It's open to all ages.
Charm Plus owner Benita Dellelce used to run the Sudbury Youth Contest and the talent competition separately, but combined them last year as Faces of the North.
Participants find the combined event “more exciting and challenging,” as there's more competitions to enter, she said.
Dellelce said the event gives participants an idea of what it's like to audition for a role in the entertainment industry or compete for a modelling job.
Even if they don't go on to become actors, models or performers, she said it's a great experience for them, as it build self-confidence.
Dellelce said she's also brought in a reputable talent agency from Toronto, and contestants have a chance of grabbing the agency's attention.
You have to be careful about who you get involved with in the talent industry, and this is a safe way to start, she said.
“You want to make sure you're connected to the right people,” Dellelce said.
The event takes place starting at 7:30 p.m. March 23 at the Steelworkers Hall. Participants must register by March 15. The entry fee is $65.
