Ac­cord­ing to Kids Inc Cast­ing and Model Agency in Cape Town, your child needs to meet the fol­low­ing key re­quire­ments:

They must be pre­sentable with clean hair, nails and cloth­ing. Un­less the brief says other­wise, your child should be neatly dressed and wear­ing shoes to the cast­ing ses­sion.

They should be self- mo­ti­vated and have en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm. “There are count­less wardrobe fit­tings and re­hearsals, even over the week­ends – warns Natasha Brick­man, owner of Kids on Cam­era.

They should be will­ing to put some of their own needs aside for the du­ra­tion of a shoot. Your child might have to miss out on some of their hob­bies and events such as birth­day par­ties.

They must re­spect the terms and con­di­tions such as con­fi­den­tial­ity. They might be privy to in­for­ma­tion that’s not yet pub­lic.

They should speak well. Even though your child doesn’t have to be an English first- lan­guage speaker, they need to be fa­mil­iar with the lan­guage.
