International Opportunity...



Presenting the International Presentation of Performers (iPOP) Regional Talent Search Agents.


Summer Heat Model & Talent Search, now in its 9th year, travels to every province of South Africa searching for singers, actors, dancers and male and female models to join the #SummerHeatFamily.

At each audition, we strive to find the most passionate, talented and/or promising contestants in each category to invite to the glittering national awards event at the end of the year. At the auditions, contestants attend a workshop and then perform for the selection panel. Contestants may participate in one or more category (doing more than one category is always a bonus). In the audition round, contestants will be participating against others in their province for one of the sought-after invitations to the Summer Heat National Awards weekend.

What To Expect Next?

Each contestant at the auditions who is selected as a finalist for Summer Heat Model & Talent Search is invited to attend a 5-day weekend to participate in the national annual awards event where they will meet up with and work with contestants from around the country.

During this time, the finalists participate in workshops, photo shoots, team building exercises and loads of fun.

By the end of the weekend, an unbreakable bond has formed between the finalists and they all feel that they have gained a family. On the penultimate day of the National Awards weekend, contestants perform for industry professional judges, and on the final day the various titleholders are announced during a glittering, fun-filled awards ceremony. Apart from various medals, certificates and prizes which are given out at the awards, the Summer Heat Star of the Show will win a fully sponsored trip to perform at the iPop Convention in Las Vegas in 2019.


Apart from the opportunity of being selected as the best of the best at the Summer Heat Awards Weekend, this is also the perfect launching pad to kickstart a supportive network in the performing arts industry - as so many have done in the past; and can also act as the platform to help you to follow your dream.

Various scouts and decision makers attend the Summer Heat National Awards in search of their next big star. Summer Heat has been lauded as the safest platform in South Africa from which to launch a national and international career. It is frequently complimented on their modern, loving approach to dealing with the talented youth of South Africa, while maintaining a proudly international standard.
