About Our Contest


RISE Talent Contest was created and funded in 2018 by the European Union in Jordan to promote and celebrate Jordan's youth talent in different artistic dimensions. 

Rise Talent Contest gives the chance to Jordan’s youth (ages 18-30) to compete as individuals or in groups in one of four different categories: dancing, singing, arts and music. 

The contest features four fan favorite celebrities to decide who will be Jordan’s next talented artists in the each of the mentioned categories. 

The first edition of the contest was held in 2018 and received excited young and talented individuals based on three categories (music, arts, and singing).


The contest was very well received by the audience, which paved the way for several editions of the contest. The latest edition of the contest was aired on Roya TV in an aim to reach a broader audience among Jordan’s youth, and has received more than 300 applications.
