Canada's premier Christian vocal talent competition is now open for contestant registration. The winner will take away an impressive $35,000 prize package including studio sessions, photo shoot, 1000 CDs, website, music video, publicity, tour support, and radio promotion!

Registration is open until December 31, 2013 for all-ages Christian solo vocal talents to enter the 6th Shining Start Contest. The entry fee is $125. The winner will take away a $35,000 prize package and the first runner-up prize package is valued at over $1,500. Each contestant receives professional feedback from a celebrity judge and performs at least once for a live audience.

The preliminaries will take place in London, Woodstock, Brantford, and Kitchener on February 1, 8, 15th and 22nd respectively, with semi-finals taking place in London and Waterloo Region on March 22nd and 29th. The preliminaries and semi-finals are free to the public. The final ticketed competition will take place May 3 in Waterloo Region and feature a performance from a high profile Christian artist (to be announced later). Visit for complete entry rules.

Contestants will be judged on pitch, timing, tone, articulation, voice control, stage presence, Shining Star factor, among other things. Past celebrity judges have included Canadian recording artists such as Michelle Wright and Tim Neufeld of Starfield.

Background: Faith FM 94.3 in Kitchener, under Sound of Faith Broadcasting, began the competition in 2006 to promote Canadian Christian talent, provide local artists with an opportunity to perform and launch a professional music career. Contestants have ranged from young people just starting out to part-time musicians.

“We see the 2014 contest being the largest yet and have brought on a team to work with us to produce the event,” says Dave MacDonald, GM of Sound of Faith Broadcasting and retired CTV weatherman. Satellite Sky Solutions, an outside event marketing firm, will manage the operation of the contest to assist in growth. Sound of Faith is pleased to have D.A. Kurt Insurance Brokers Ltd and Financial Services as the Platinum Sponsor again.
