Nassau, Bahamas - Music, Model and Talent Showcase of the Islands (Island MMTS) proudly announces the launch of our Season 2 auditions. We are in search of aspiring models, singers, actors, music producers and song writers. This year we are also holding auditions for dancers solo, duo or group as well as stand-up comedians. Season 2 will launch on October 24th with our first auditions being held in Nassau, Bahamas at Mario's Bowling & Entertainment Palace beginning at 10 am sharp. As we did last year, we will host auditions in countries across the Caribbean region. Successful candidates will be invited to become delegates at our Island MMTS Conference to be held in Nassau, Bahamas from July 18th – 22nd, 2016. Interested persons are required to register online for an audition by filling out the registration form accessible via our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/islandmmts.

Island MMTS is a paid conference, offering delegates the opportunity to showcase, compete, network, gain knowledge but also get scouted by top international talent agents, labels and media. Season 1 of Island MMTS welcomed over 50 international V.I.P. agents, scouts and media including Ford Models, B.E.T., Grazia Magazine, Next Canada, NARIP, SESAC and many more. Delegates were able to network 1-on-1 and exchange with the likes of actress/director Kim Fields of Tyler Perry Studios, Grammy award winning producer Bryan Michael Cox, editor at Vibe Magazine Datwon Thompson and NARIP president Tess Taylor. Many delegates in attendance at our 2015 conference have already become success stories.  They not only walked away with top performance prizes but some are now being developed and working in the entertainment industry in their various fields.


Among the top prize winners of Island MMTS Season 1 were Nassau ambassadors Jessica Thompson, Preston "Puzzle" Wallace, Davin Johnson, Judah "tha lion" Seymour, Penelope Lightbourn, Julien "Believe" Thompson, Antoine "Mega The Merovingian" Thompson, Vanessa Leach, Rossano Deal, Jamie Rose, Georgino Bodie, Lakishna Johnson and Dionte Burnside. All of whom displayed incredible talent and received call backs from our panel of international agents and scouts.
We are very excited for the start of Season 2 and this new round of auditions. Island MMTS Season 1 was deemed “life changing” by the delegates of the 19 Caribbean islands in attendance this past July. We aim to exceed expectations for Season 2, maintaining a safe environment for Caribbean talent to develop and cross borders. Island MMTS can be found online via all social media platforms @islandMMTS or using hashtag #islandMMTS.
