The Star Awards have experienced huge growth in the past 5 years and this year we are holding our Premiere Finals Concert once again at the Performing Arts Centre at Bethlehem College.

The Star Awards has now become the largest and most prestigious country music event in the North Island. Previous winners include Mike Roycroft, Dennis Marsh and Al Hunter, who have used their success in the Star Awards as a stepping stone to successful singing careers, both in New Zealand and Australia. Our more recent winners have also done well, with our 2012 Star Awards winner, Hayley Smith winning the Trans-Tasman Country Music Awards held in Norfolk Island in May 2012. Our 2013 Star Awards winner, Lesley Nia Nia has just returned from the New Zealand Gold Guitar Awards in Gore as the 2014 Overall Runner-Up.

Contestants come from Gore in the South Island to Auckland in the North Island, to compete in the sections covering Junior and Intermediate, Under 18s, Senior and Veterans, in various categories including vocal, gospel, duo, instrumental and others.

All contestants are judged at the auditions and the highest scoring artists appear in the Premiere Finals Concert held on the Sunday afternoon, where they are re-judged to find the Overall Winner in each of the age sections.

To enable artists to perform at their very best, we have engaged 3 top audition bands from the Waikato and the Bay of Plenty. We have also been able to secure the services of “Bacchus”, Renny Hantler’s band, featuring Dan Cosgrove, who was the 2013 N.Z.C.M.Z. Entertainer of the Year and a “Horizon Awards” Nominee for Best New Artist. Dan will be Lead Guitarist plus Special Guest Artist at this year’s Premiere Finals Concert.
