The third annual “ABC Discovers: Digital Talent Competition” will take place until Sunday, June 14. Actors who are at least 18 can go to ABCDiscovers.com and submit a video for the chance to receive a one-year $25,000 talent deal with ABC and a spot in the New York or Los Angeles 2015 ABC Discovers: Talent Showcase.

This year’s winner will be announced Monday, July 20.

To enter the ABC Discovers: Digital Talent Competition, create a video performing one of the comedy or drama scenes posted on ABCDiscovers.com. Actors will be judged on quality of performance, potential star power and technical skill set.

Last year’s winners were Khalilah Joi Dubose (Hampton, Virgina) and Cornelius Smith Jr. (Detroit). After winning, Smith Jr. went on to land a recurring role on the ABC hit drama “Scandal” as neighborhood activist Marcus Walker.
