(VOXtra) - The voice over paparazzi were ignited - cameras and smiles flashing - as the traditional Red Carpet Reception Tuesday night opened VOICE 2012, the worldwide conference of voice actors now under way at the Disneyland Hotel and Resort in Anaheim, CA.

Some 400 voice actors have registered for the VoiceOver International Creative Experience (the event's official name), co-produced by voice over trainer/producer James Alburger and voice talent/trainer Penny Abshire (pictured, with voice talent Trish Basanyi, center).

"This is the most beautiful group of voice actors we've ever had at a VOICE conference," says Abshire. "Beauty - the way we look, but also how everyone is helping everyone else here."
