Once again, our local models refuse to disappoint. They proved that they can compete with the best and win some of the most prestigious awards given at IMTA. Numerous talented and beautiful people from throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Canada descended upon Los Angeles at the Westin Bonaventure for the semi-annual International Modeling and Talent Association's event, and SIX of our Amarillo models turned some powerful heads. IMTA is an organization comprised of leading modeling/talent training centers and agencies engaged in the professional promotion of the fashion and talent industry.
More than 300 top fashion and talent agents, casting directors and industry professionals participated as judges and scouts in the action-packed, week-long international event. Men, women and children of all ages competed on the modeling runway in high fashion, casual wear and swimwear while actors performed monologues, cold reads, soap and sitcoms scenes and TV commercials. Singers and dancers were showcased, and all participants attended educational workshops and seminars presented by industry experts.
The exciting week culminated with awards events at which the agents, educational institutions and VIP's in attendance presented competition winners with trophies, cash prizes and scholarships for outstanding performances.
