Last but not not least, the winner will get the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles, California to compete in the national Kollaboration Star show against other local Kollaboration winners for grand prize of $10,000.
Showcase applications are available on Kollaboration New York’s website. To audition, interested parties must submit a detailed application and include a video link of the talent he/she would like to audition with. The video may be a past performance or a home recording. Acts will undergo a selection process by the Kollaboration New York staff. Selected applicants will move on to participate in the Live Auditions.
