Star Maker has been a launching pad for the careers of Keith Urban, Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole, James Blundell, Darren Coggan, Kylie Sackley and more than 30 others.
Each year Star Maker invites aspiring country music artists to compete for a range of opportunities that will provide a substanial career boost for the winner.
Star Maker is more than just a talent quest - it is a search (through competition) for an individual who has the greatest potential to take advantage of the opportunities offered in the Toyota Star Maker prize package!
The finalists are chosen by a panel of judges who analyze the entries which are combined to establish the best 10 from the entries received.
The 2016 Toyota Star Maker winner was Karin Page! Karin has since recorded a track and music video 'Keep On' as well as having the opportunity to perform at the 2016 Gympie Muster!
