SABC3’s Presenter Search is back for a 2018 Search after three years of silence and the auditions begin this month.

The channel is looking for new talent to join one of their Tswelopele-produced lifestyle shows Expresso, Afternoon Express and Top Billing.

Previous winners include Jade Hubner, Danilo Acquisto, Zoë Brown and Chris Jaftha, who was hired three months after the Search ended.

How to enter:

Simply arrive with a photo – and arrive early. A photo isn’t 100% essential but it is advisable to take one with you. At registration you’ll be given a registration form to fill out and allocated an audition number. Keep your number, your photo and your form and wait to audition.

What to prepare:
Ideally all auditionees should provide one printed photo of themselves at the auditions which will be attached to your audition form. If you don’t have a photo, don’t worry – you can still audition. Ensure you bring the following to auditions: Water, sunscreen or an umbrella for shade.

Wear something that defines your style. Avoid fine stripes and large brand logos.
Prepare a 10-15 second audition that introduces you to the judges and to the world. Explain who you are and woo the judges with something catchy, witty and interesting.

What to expect:

Arrive expecting to make friends.
Queues can be long and the days hot so be prepared for the weather and for a long wait.
Although food and drinks will be available at the audition venues to purchase at your own cost, the organisers suggest taking something of your own just in case.
Each venue will provide free WIFI which you can login to use it for the day.

The Audition:

When you enter the audition room, greet the judges and ensure that you have your registration number attached to yourself and clearly visible, and when you’re ready, you’ll deliver your first link.
You’ll walk from one mark (an X) on the floor, to the next mark (another X on the floor), whilst delivering a 10-15 second link that introduces you to the judges and to the world.
Explain who you are, what makes you unique, and woo the judges with something catchy, witty and interesting – all while walking from the first mark to the second mark.

How do I know if I made it?

If you’ve made it to the Call Back stage you will receive a call from the show producers on the last night of the auditions.
If you auditioned in Port Elizabeth Call Back auditionees will be notified on the night of 25 March.
If you auditioned in Cape Town Call Back auditionees will be notified on the night of 8 April.
If you auditioned in Durban Call Back auditionees will be notified on the night of 15 April.
