Target Corporation is holding a casting in LA on August 14th, 2009, for children and young adults ages 6 to 26, to feature in its future advertising.

To be considered, you must respond by Monday, August 3rd. Thanks to Gail Williamson of DSALA for the heads up. You can download the pre-casting sheet which outlines casting and photo shoot expectations at DSALA/Heart & Halo here.

Target asks that all those interested:

-Look over the expectations to ensure the individual or child will be comfortable with both the casting and potential future photo shoot experiences.
-Fill out the casting sheet electronically if possible.
-E-mail it back to along with an attached photo no larger than 500K or 1/2MB. Potential models and their parents/caregivers will be contacted by email or phone if selected to appear at the LA casting. Further information will be given at that time.
Target gets big kudos for their on-going commitment to including special needs diversity in their advertising, one of the first large retailers to do so.

The Bullseye rocks.
