Please Note: There is a cost associated with this competition unless you have a promo code to get in free (Entry Fee $39.99). This is a national Christian competition and it’s a very serious competition. The reason it’s not FREE is because we do not want people to enter that are not serious about the opportunity to get the exposure this competition will bring by entering. Also, we do not want people entering negative video or audio messages, junk video uploads, play games, ads, etc. This is the first national Christian artist competition and we are advertising heavily on Christian radio stations across the country. We want to present talent individuals to the industry professionals that have committed to scouting the talent in this competition. We want them to have a great experience looking for new and talented Christian artist. Free doesn’t always bring the quality record companies are looking for and we do not want to waste their time. Thank you
