WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THE CASTING CALL?
It’s absolutely normal to feel nervous! The casting calls are always a huge part of FITposium where you have the opportunity to be cast for REAL work, including published in a magazine, sponsorships, brand ambassadors, and more! We will be sending out guides prior to the event that will tell you everything you need to know!
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT THE PORTFOLIO REVIEW?
This is a rare opportunity for you to sit down face to face with magazine editors! You can bring your portfolio of work (it doesn’t need to be fancy!) and show the editor so they can give you honest feedback of what they’d recommend to make you more marketable. This is an opportunity for you to make an impression with the editors, and one you won’t find anywhere else!

HOW CAN I MAKE MONEY BY BECOMING AN AMBASSADOR FOR FITPOSIUM?
We are excited to offer an opportunity to make money for referring your friends and clients to FITposium! Simply sign up using the ambassador link and you’ll be assigned a unique link to provide to your referrals. We will pay you $20 per registrant that uses your link. You cannot use this link when purchasing your own ticket. There are no additional charges to the people you refer; they’ll simply use your link and go through the same registration process as normal – it just shows us on the back end that you referred them so we can pay you! The system is automated so to make sure you get credit, they must use your personal link.
Payments will be processed after the conference.
How can I get a FITposium Shirt or Tanktop?
When you register you can add on a t-shirt or tan ktop to your purchase in the size of your choice. Tanks and t-shirts fit true to size for a fitted look. Attire is black with gold vinyl lettering.
