In the Spotlight

Discovery Spotlight™ has helped generate opportunities for many models and talent. Numerous participants have gone on to sign with national agencies and work with prestigious clients. Others have gained local and regional attention and have booked jobs from the clients they met at the showcase.

Our high success rate is largely due to the personalized attention that all contestants receive, and the education and confidence that is developed through this life changing experience.

Are you our next great discovery?
