Welcome to the 5th Season of Southern Oregon’s Got Talent, a positive community event to raise funds and awareness to help disadvantaged children.

Auditions are open through July 31, 2014.

NEW FOR SEASON 5: Every year we are excited to freshen up the show in several ways. This year we have a second charity partner: Community Works (in addition to continuing to partner with CASA) and a new venue partner:  The Jackson County Fair (in addition to the Craterian). We are also launching a new competition format that puts the weight of success on talent rather than fundraising, thanks to a generous donation from Remax Ideal Brokers, Inc. and of course, this new, fully mobile compatible website site by the folks at iOR Consulting.

NEW COMPETITIVE FORMAT: Our new format starts with auditioning. Simply submit a youtube video with your registration or register to audition live at the Jackson County Fair and pay your acts $25 registration fee (a donation to our charities). A entertainment industry celebrity panel of judges will choose the top 10 performances from the 50-100 auditions we usually receive. That’s a one in 5-10% chance of being in the final show if we post similar audition numbers as prior years. We will then post the top 10 online so the public can vote to select the People’s Choice before the Grand Finale’ show at the Craterian where the top 10 perform live. The judges vote live and choose the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and the People’s Choice winner from online voting

NEW SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY: We are looking for 10 sponsors for the top 10 performers. Contact thebigshow@southernoregonsgottalent.com with interest in getting an advertising bang for your business as we hold up 10 of the most talented individuals in Southern Oregon for a packed theater enjoy! Help promote your business’s contestant to help them win the People’s Choice and help your community’s children at the same time!
