Ryan Buirley Rocks The Stage At IMTA NY'18!

Published: September 14, 2018

It’s that time of year again, folks! The competition results are in from IMTA New York! And we have our first update, just for you Seattle Talent fans! We’re so excited! Are you excited?

Our first shout-out from IMTA NY 2018 goes the fabulous and very handsome Mr. Ryan Buirley from our Salt Lake City team! He performed in New York in front of almost 200 agents, managers, and casting directors. Sounds amazing, right? He was awarded for almost every competition he participated in, which is also pretty amazing! We are really stoked, can you tell? What’s really exciting about the IMTA experience, is that the agents who are judging the events are not simply judging these young competitors…they’re also scouting for new talent at the same time! That’s what makes the IMTA convention such an amazing opportunity for our young people to showcase their skill and potential: they’re doing so in front of the most influential names in the industry.

Let’s dive in to Ryan’s very recent victories, shall we? Our spectacular young model/actor was awarded in the following categories:

  • Commercial Print - Overall WINNER
  • Male Junior Model of the Year - 1st Runner Up
  • Runway - 1st Runner Up
  • Fashion Print - 2nd Runner Up
  • Most Sought Male Model - 3rd Runner Up

This young man brought so much stamina, poise and skill to all of his competitions. He earned Honorable Mentions in several events:

  • Jeans Runway
  • Monologue
  • On-Camera Host
  • Swimwear/Beachwear
  • TV Beauty
  • TV Real People

More important than any award, Ryan was the proud recipient of almost 20 callbacks from prestigious fashion agencies, and almost 20 callbacks from talent agents and managers as a result of his performances at IMTA NY. This guy is such an amazing talent, and we are so happy for him. Given the variety of the categories he was competitive in this season, it seems there is potential for his career to go in several awesome sectors of the industry! Who knows, maybe he will get a chance to work try all of them? Congratulations from everyone at Seattle Talent, Ryan! We are excited to see what comes next for you.
