YG Entertainment has officially revealed the poster for their global auditions for 2015.

Instructions on how to apply for the auditions can be found through

The categories for auditioning include vocal, rap and dance and the applicant must be male and between the ages of 11 and 23 (1993-2005).

Applicants can apply through the homepage by downloading the application and sending it through email or bringing the application on the day of the audition.

Confirmed dates and locations so far include:

August 29- Busan (Dongju University)
September 5-Seoul (YG Global Training Center)
September 12-LA
September 19-New York

Other locations that have yet to confirm the date include Tokyo and Osaka.

In 2014, K-pop group WINNER released their album, “2014 S/S” and won the digital music category at the Golden Disk Awards. iKON members Bobby and B.I received much attention after appearing on Mnet’s “Show Me The Money.” YG hopes to find more great talent this year and create a new boy band that stands out from the rest.

YG Entertainment hopes to take over the latter half of 2015 with the comebacks from their major artists including Big Bang, iKON and Psy.

YG has revealed that Psy is in his final stages of his comeback and that his “Gangnam Style” promotions will end in September.

He hopes to focus on his usual fun and cool concept instead of trying to create something as successful as “Gangnam Style.”

On Wednesday, Big Bang released the “E” portion of their “Made” series.

Fans hoped that YG would expand their audition locations to other parts of the world.

“YG should come to the Philippines for auditions,” wrote Kypin Kywin posted Friday to the YG Audition Facebook page. “I’m sure they’d fined a lot of talented applicants.”

Others hoped that they would hold another audition later for females as well.

“Why won’t you take girls this year,” wrote Sadia Prova posted Friday as well. “Next year maybe?”
