Casting Networks was also honored to support the Casting Guild of Australia (CGA) and its annual awards and Rising Stars program in November. The Rising Stars initiative was created by the CGA six years ago to recognize 10 rising performers each year who show promise of breaking through in international markets. Each actor honored on this list will receive a two-year premium membership to Casting Networks Australia.

We’re proud to continually support the CGA and emerging talent in Australia, as well as the casting professionals that work diligently to discover and cast incredible performers.
