Japanese leading entertainment agency Avex, which boost the likes of Ayumi Hamasaki, Koda Kumi, Amuro Namie and Ai Otsuka etc… is holding AWA 2008, its first ever worldwide audition in celebration with the company’s 20th anniversary.
From what I understand, Avex is looking for young talents (age 7-24) in singing, acting, dancing and modelling… nationality and races are not relevant, but the applicants must be able to communicate in Japanese.
It’s walk-in audition for people living in Japan; J-ent mentioned that auditions will be held across the world including USA…
but I can’t seem to find the information on the official website.
Update – for US auditions (website)
San Francisco, CA – October 25th and 26th
Los Angeles, CA – November 8th and 9th
New York, NY – November 15th and 16th
Unless there’s further announcement from Avex, (other) international applicants have to send in applications by mail or via the web. Deadline is November 28, 2008.
