What is WCOPA
WHAT IS THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF PERFORMING ARTS?
For centuries, there has been an exclusive “Olympics” for athletes. This discriminatory practice is being corrected for performing artists by the creation of the “World Championships of Performing Arts” (WCOPA), cited as the one and only “official Talent Olympics” for aspiring performers and entertainers. After 24 years of incredible growth, it is the only international talent and modeling competition of its kind annually held in or around “Hollywood,” entertainment capital of the world! Similar to the Olympics, only invited and qualified competitors (called WORLDSTARS) represent their countries and compete each year in a fierce competition for “the gold”!
WHAT are “International WORLDSTARS”?
International WORLDSTARS are those achieving talent and models from around the world that have been exclusively screened, qualified and invited to represent their countries at the one-and-only, ultimate world championships for aspiring performers and entertainers:
*JUNIOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF PERFORMING ARTS (JWCOPA) for achieving
performers and entertainers ages 5 to 15. (NO ENTRIE UNDER 5 YEARS OF AGE ACCEPTED)
*WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF PERFORMING ARTS (WCOPA) for aspiring performers and entertainers ages 16 and over.
HOW ARE CONTESTANTS SELECTED AND INVITED?
Like the Olympics, the finest aspiring talent and modeling competitors from countries are qualified and invited. Every contestant attending the World Championships of Performing Arts system is screened, qualified and selected under specific guidelines established by WCOPA, and executed by Scouts and licensed National Directors from the invited countries. Contestant-at-large procedures are available where there is no director. Delegations of outstanding competitors from approximately sixty (60) countries will be represented at both the Junior World Championships and the World Championships.
