​International Fairs and Auditions (alphabetically by country)

You may choose to attend an audition/interview in one of these countries, or in Liverpool: if you’re unable attend in person, we’ll provide detailed instructions on how to present a "postal audition" in the form of a video or a portfolio submission.

Please note that for most auditions and interviews, we expect candidates to have prepared for auditions and interviews in advance using guidelines we provide.

All LIPA interviews and auditions start and end on the same day.
