Ever wonder how your talent compares to other aspiring performers? Participating in competitions is a great way to gauge how you measure up in the industry, as well as increase your confidence and get additional performing experience. It's also a great way to get exposure and boost your resume.
To make the most out of your competition experience:
Target competitions that are geared towards helping performers launch a professional career – especially competitions that either have celebrity judges or have a reputation of being well attended by industry professionals.
Make sure you're aware of all scheduled deadlines, rehearsals and performances. You don't want to blow your big break because you didn't get your application in on time or because you missed your audition.
Be sure that you're aware of all of the requirements - especially any required fees - so that you're prepared. Whether it's a singing, modeling, acting or dance competition, be sure that you have everything you'll need from your repertoire to your wardrobe – and if you don't have something, make sure you take care of it well in advance.
Take advantage of opportunities to network. Remain focused on the competition, but be sure that you build relationships with participants, staff and other individuals that could potentially help you in the future.
Have fun! Winning isn't everything. If you don't win your first competition, there are lots more out there. And with all of the experience that you get from your first competition, you'll be even more prepared for the next.
