Learn about modeling conventions, what to expect and how to prepare

There are several types of conventions, competitions, and go-sees held throughout the world for models. These can be beneficial and/or a great learning experience, or a total waste of time and money. More intimate research should be performed on the event if you are serious about attending, because not all of them prove to be legitimate. However, many great careers have been launched and been very successful due to these events. Be sure to weigh the benefits and let downs of these events prior to attending, you need to have thick skin for this business!

What should I expect?
1. Most conventions have large turnouts, causing the competition to be more fierce.
2. Many models may be much more experienced than you.
3. Many of the models will already have excellent portfolios.
4. There is no “one on one” contact with agents, that is just not possible at such a large event.
5. They can tend to be long and agonizingly brutal
