The Annual Jacaranda Quest for Talent

About the Quest

Each year south east Queenslands best young talent converges on Ipswich to compete in the Jacaranda Festival Quest for Talent.  The Quest provides a fantastic development opportunity for performers to hone their skills in front of qualified judges and the local crowd.

With professional staging and sound, you’ll be working with pro’s and putting on one of the greatest live shows. As an added bonus, our winners receive cash prizes we hope will enable them to continue their careers and take on new challenges

Judges Feedback – This year we will be trialing a new system for providing written feedback to each contestant for each performance.

So what are you waiting for? Will you be our next Quest for Talent winner?
