Your Shot is back in 2016 to uncover Australia's superstar DJ!

YOUR SHOT is as much about building confidence and teaching useful skills to applicants as it is about finding the next star DJ” explains YOUR SHOT director, Steve Pillemer. He continues, “The idea came about when I realized there were thousands of young people out there who had the desire to become DJ’s but had no idea how to do it. YOUR SHOT is the first competition where you don’t need experience to register, giving people the opportunity to begin achieving their dream.” YOUR SHOT’s success has also landed the brand overseas, having expanded to the United States for the launch of YOUR SHOT USA web series in 2015. With over 20 million views, the series has achieved great success, including praise and partnership with arguably one of the biggest names in dance music history and YOUR SHOT ambassador,Tiesto, crediting the competition. “YOUR SHOT is an incredible concept, contestants get the chance to learn to DJ and play in front of a crowd, and from then on maybe they can become the next superstar” Tiestosays. Combining all suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, YOUR SHOT gives ninety contestants from each state the opportunity to get their shot at becoming a performing DJ. Each contestant receives a six-week full DJ training course at The Academy where they will learn the basics required to become a successful DJ and will put together their first ever DJ set. Following their training, each contestant will perform for the very first time at a jam packed, two day YOUR SHOT event in each state. The final YOUR SHOT event in each state will see the contestants performing alongside some of the top headline DJs from Australia as well as the best up and coming talent. Every contestant will perform to the best of their abilities in the hopes of taking home the title of YOUR SHOT champion along with life-changing prizes. Each state contestant and Wild Card winner will receive an all expenses paid trip overseas to play their very own set at some of the world’s hottest and most renowned party destinations includingSnowbombing (Austria), BPM (Mexico), Your Paradise (Fiji), ZoukOut, (Singapore), Chasing Summer (Canada) and Sunburn (India). Previous YOUR SHOT contestant DJ Tigerlily (Dara Hayes) says, “The YOUR SHOT experience really taught me that anything was possible. If you’re able to dedicate your time and energy to something that you’re passionate about, then the world is your oyster. For me, that was DJ’ing and performing, and YOUR SHOT really gave me the belief and the drive to realize that I could achieve even my biggest dreams.” Registrations are now open and will close on May 13, 2016 unless capacity is reached sooner.
