Make A Star is one of the longest-running talent and contest websites in the world. We began all the way back in the year 2000 as a platform for musicians, fans and independent labels to network and compete for cash prizes.
Our current contest format has awarded tens of thousands in monthly cash prizes since 2009 in several music, video and other talent categories. Starting in October we’re spicing things up with some changes that will see winners from different categories go up against each other in an all-new playoff!
All contests will keep the initial contender phase where the top qualifying entries by fan votes advance each month to a bracket round.
The Music Video contest will continue unchanged as a monthly $100 cash prize bracket.
The Duo or Band, Male Solo Artist, Female Solo Artist and Instrumental bracket winners will each advance to a new Best Song playoff with a $100 cash prize awarded to the best of the four finalists. The Best Song contest will take place in the last week of each month immediately following each of the four artists’ bracket wins.
Stand Up Comic, Rap Battle and Sing in 30 Seconds contests will continue as a monthly bracket, but will compete for a cash prize once every three months in a new third phase where the previous three monthly winners square off against each other.
Each monthly winner in all categories will still be featured on the Make A Star home page, in these monthly newsletters and on our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
We’re excited to hear everyone’s new music and see the latest music videos compete for more prestigious Make A Star titles for years to come!
