is a professional organization of acting and modeling academies from around the world who meet biannually for conventions in Los Angeles. A typical iPOP! convention includes over a thousand performers and entertainment industry representatives from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Asia and more!
Held in January and July in Los Angeles, iPOP! conventions are week-long events where thousands of unsigned actors, models, singers and dancers compete. Aspiring performers attend different acting and modeling competitions, runway shows and seminars in front of entertainment industry agents, managers and casting directors. At the end of the week, contestants are called back by the agents and managers to discuss possible representation. The purpose of this convention is to bring together trained actors, models, singers and dancers with leading industry representatives who have the ability to launch their careers.
At iPOP!, performers compete in a series of acting, modeling, singing and dancing competitions. The acting category includes TV commercials, monologues and scenes. The modeling division features runway, print and swimwear. Singers and dancers are evaluated on their original performances for a chance to participate in the talent showcase. Following the week of competitions, performers have the opportunity to meet individually with the agents and managers. This is their last chance to make an impression that will separate them from the rest of the pack. After the convention, some contestants choose to remain in Los Angeles to audition while others return home to continue their training.
