Are you a star just waiting to be discovered? Now's the time to let your talent shine! ABC is searching for actors to receive mentorship and acting opportunities in the fourth annual ABC Discovers: Digital Talent Competition.

"We've always been committed to finding the very best talent through innovative and imaginative ways. As actors continue to cultivate their abilities and create content to showcase themselves using technology, it makes sense for us to engage and connect with them in this space," said Ayo Davis, the senior vice president talent and casting for ABC Entertainment.

Cornelius Smith Jr., a 2014 winner, is now a regular on Scandal as Marcus Walker, one of Olivia Pope's associates. Last year's winner, Samuel Adegoke, has appeared on Criminal Minds Beyond Borders and Switched at Birth.

Winners from the ABC Discovers: Digital Talent Competition have gone on to participate in ABC's Talent Showcase, which has served as a launching pad for such talented actors as Academy-Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'o of 12 Years a Slave and The Jungle Book, Gina Rodriguez from Jane The Virgin, Chadwick Boseman of Black Panther and 42, Randall Park of Fresh Off The Boat, Jesse Williams of Grey's Anatomy, and Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba.

Actors age 18 and older are encouraged to create a video showing themselves performing comedy or drama scenes and post it on ABCDiscovers.com. Actors will be judged on quality of performance, potential star power and technical skill set. The winner will receive a one-year $25,000 talent deal with ABC. A winner will be announced on or about July 26, 2016.
