(PR) A new online contest was recently launched by FameCast. The nationwide contest, the first of many to be held by FameCast, was developed to discover the next big music and comedy stars. The FameCast contest will showcase legitimate artists who have yet to be discovered and whom the audience deems to be worthy of stardom. The online contest and community will provide contestants the ability to connect with and grow a national audience and compete to win the grand prize worth $10,000. FameCast removes the physical barriers to talent discovery and aims to shine the spotlight on those that have what it takes, but have lacked the breaks.

For the first contest, contestants will participate on one of six stages - Rock, Pop, R&B, Country, Hip Hop, and Comedy. Contestants will need to submit a video performance to participate and judging for all qualified submitted performances will open up on January 8, 2007. The contest exists to serve the talent industry, the artists themselves, and the fans voting for who's worthy of being called the best. The audience truly decides who rises to the top, democratizing the talent industry - for the people, by the people. The final five contestants from each Stage will be flown on location in Austin, TX to compete in a live show during SXSW the week of March 12, 2007. The shows will be Webcast for viewers to watch and select the ultimate FameCast winners that same week. - Click here for the Full Story
