REPRESENT is excited to announce our partnership with Lee Daniels Entertainment for the first ever Lee Daniels Entertainment Creative Workshop in LA, September 25-28th! 

As part of our mentorship initiative, we are selecting three aspiring content creatives to come to Los Angeles for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to develop your skills, learn from top talent and industry executives, and position yourself for success in entertainment. Winners will also get to visit the set of a Lee Daniels Entertainment production. We'll take care of your hotel accommodations, transportation around Los Angeles, meals, and more. Air travel courtesy of American Airlines.
We’re looking for participants who demonstrate creativity and are passionate about a career in entertainment, but might not otherwise have access to networking and mentorship opportunities in the industry.
Read the official rules.
