Login to Apply Online – STEP 2

This is the portal to your ONLINE APPLICATIONS

Welcome to our new application process. Please read this carefully as our application process has changed to better serve you and our contestants.

You’ve reached this section of our updated website to initially apply as a participant and/or group. This portal will also offer additional opportunities as the event unfolds, both this year and beyond: viewing the preliminary schedule, seeing the finalists list, and reviewing your own judges’ comments after each stage of the competition.

NEW IN 2020:

Even if you’ve participated in a previous Spotlight on Talent competition, this year you are required to create a “participant account” with an email address and password to establish a login, allowing you to access the 2020 applications.

If you haven’t already done so on the STEP 1 page, click the “Register” link below to take you to that page.

NOTE about Creating an Account – each act will need to use a unique email address for applying. If necessary, you can create additional free email addresses from websites such as google.com, outlook.com, or yahoo.com (you must be 13 years old or older to create email addresses with those sites).

If you have trouble with the new process, you can contact the producers at spotlight@heritagearts.org or call the executive producer, Barbara Friedman, at 352-567-1720.
