Outstanding Student Award
This is THE top Academy Award for students who are committed to their studies and go above and beyond what is required of them. Receive recognition as an Outstanding Student for your Attendance, Appearance, and Attitude! This award demonstrates to agents and potential clients that you show up when you say you will, take pride in your personal presentation and appearance, are a pleasure to work with, have demonstrated proficiency in your skills, and are a role model and shining example to others.
Ready to Work Award
Casting placement services are offered to ALL of our students and graduates as a free service, but we will be giving priority to those who receive a "Ready to Work" Award, demonstrating their preparedness to go on auditions. "Ready to Work" talent will be the first talent we submit to clients when they are looking for models and actors. To receive your "Ready to Work" award, you must have complete professional materials specific to your area of interest, as well as pass a live audition with Julie Nation staff.
Refer a friend who enrolls in a Julie Nation program, and you will receive a $100 gift certificate to apply towards your account balance, another program at Julie Nation’s, our Model & Talent Showcase, or a 2 or more look photo shoot with in-house photographer Harasyn Sipes. Thank you for being an Ambassador and sharing the Julie Nation experience with others!
