Probably not. It has been our experience that “modeling conventions” accept anyone with the money to enter regardless of their qualifications as a model. The cost is quite high, but you will meet agents. You can, however, meet these same agents at their offices for free. Every agency in the country accepts submissions by mail. Some have certain days when they conduct open calls. If you are what they are looking for, they will arrange to meet you at no charge. Let’s say there is interest in you by a large agency from New York or Los Angeles. You will be expected to relocate. These agencies can not send you out for auditions and jobs unless you live in the same city.
