The search is on for talent

DURBAN auditions for The International ARTS Talent Showcase (IATS) takes place on Sunday, 12 March at St Mary’s DSG.

While talent competitions are nothing new many of these competitions are based on momentary thrills, with no long-term strategy in place to ensure continued success.

This is what sets IATS apart.

It’s not a competition but a platform for local artists to get international opportunities and its primary focus is on arts education. IATS is the South African leg of the Applause Rising Talent Showcase (ARTS), held annually in Orlando, Florida.

Elsubie Verlinden, who is the founder of Just You Model and Artist Management, runs this event and teamed up with Kim Meyers to bring the showcase to the African continent.

In her capacity as Regional Director for ARTS in Africa, she has provided countless young South Africans exposure to top educational outlets in the USA.

Each year she travels from city to city throughout South Africa to scout the best talent the country has to offer to attend the International ARTS Talent Showcase, where South

African models, actors, singers and dancers get to audition in front of Meyers.

She selects those who show great potential in their fields to attend the ARTS Convention in Florida, which is attended by managers, producers, casting agents from Asia, Europe and America.

To enter contact talent scout Shylo Pereira on 081 428 9501 or email to book your spot. Pre-registration is now open.
