If you are a passionate cook who is in love with putting together mouth-watering and visually appealing food for your family and loved ones, it is time to try something big. All you need is a little confidence, enough to showcase your amazing cooking skills to the world. If you have got it all, you have what it takes to be in MasterChef Australia. You can outcook numerous competitors, and take home the title of being a ‘MasterChef’. Not only this, but you can also win a grand prize of $250,000. To take this chance of becoming a professional chef, you need to know about the audition and casting information for the next season, which is going to be held in 2021.
Start with pre-registering yourself on the official website. A webpage displaying the terms and conditions will appear. Make sure to read it thoroughly before proceeding any further. Start by entering your name, employment status and contact information. You will be prompted to answer some 30-40 questions, about your personal life, your employment history, legal history to make a thorough background. Answer whatever question is asked and click submit. The entire form is going to take a good hour or two. At the end of filing the application form, you have to upload specified media, including a recent digital photograph of yours, three obligatory pictures of your food which can go up to seven, and a 1-3 minute video displaying your skills in the kitchen. The video is mandatory and should be relevant to the format, addressing things like who you are and what cooking means to you.
Things to know
You can fill the form at once, or keep some part of it for later. Now download and fill out the prompted application form along with the registration number assigned to you. Fill in all the details and take a completed application along with your signature dish to the selected open call location that you have previously chosen. The open call location does not have a kitchen, so you will be asked to get an already prepared ready-to-serve dish. Audition days are usually long. There is going to be a lot of standing and waiting. You will have a place to keep your dish, but you have to bring utensils, including spoons, plates, knives, etc. People who are selected for call-backs are told so during their auditions or shortly after. Call-backs are scheduled within one to three days after the open call. If you do not get a chance to pre-register from the website, you can still attend one of the open calls and bring the dish.
The pre-registrations were previously held by castasugar.com and are now outsourced to different platforms. You can visit 10play.com.au to know more about MasterChef Australia season 13 which will be held in 2021. The minimum age limit to apply for the auditions is 18 years as on October 2020. You have to be an Australian citizen or a resident, with no professional or semi-professional kitchen experience. The closing date of the applications for MasterChef Australia is August 10 2020.
