Been feeling super scrambled with thoughts lately due to the pressure of sorting out what to do with my life. I'm sure mostly everyone can relate to this in some way. I just want to say to anyone going through this (and myself included), all things come in waves so don't worry. As long as we follow our instincts, work hard, accept and learn from failure, we will be fine ❤🤙🏼 Hope everyone is having a dope weekend, love you guys 💖

'The Clearing.' Swipe for details...can you spot the bee? <3
We are looking forward to having our last year Mainstream Winner @sophieelisagibbs back with us during the ASOTY finals in Bali.
Sophie from the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. Lives in residential college, and currently studying medicine at the University of Adelaide. She is also a competitive horse rider, travelling around the state and country. “I have so many passions in so many areas, so at times I struggle to feel that I am pushing myself to be the best I can be in a given area. However being with ASOTY has allowed me to grasp opportunities and feel pushed, and so eager to strive. I can’t wait to be a part of ASOTY 2020, to see who the new members of this family are and help guide them, like I was last year.” -Sophie
It is time for us to introduce our 2nd judge at ASOTY 2020.
An absolute pleasure to have the multi-talented Shae-Lee Shackleford on board the ASOTY team. We are looking forward to her presence throughout the competition. And strongly believe that her understanding of social media will enable a positive learning for our young talent this year, not to mention, her film-making skills. And yes, we can be guaranteed about loads of fun this season.
Shae-Lee is most well known for her work with the female comedy trio 'SketchShe'. Their online videos have amassed over half a billion views world wide with viral sensations such as ‘Mime Through Time' and ‘InstaFaker'. They have performed on shows such as Ellen Degeneres and Good Morning America and her work has been featured on Mashable, BuzzFeed, Time Magazine, CBS News, CNN, Forbes and The Huffington Post. Shae-Lee's fan base and audience reaches over 3.6 million people across YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
She's written and directed a TV sizzle for a female driven musical series entitled POSSE; the result of receiving the highly prestigious Gender Matters Grant from Screen Australia. This is the second grant she has received after writing and directing the web series ‘Traffic Jam The Musical' with previous funding and a successful Kickstarter campaign.
Shae-Lee has also directed a number of successful short films as well as pieces of comedic branded content and commercials for Hewlett Packard, Viacom, Universal, Pitch Perfect 2, Benefit Cosmetics, Logitech, Sonic, Twix, Kotex, Google, McDonalds and Lifeline along with a host of other Australian brands. She has directed a feature film entitled “Life on the Rocks” and has another feature in development - a romantic comedy entitled “The Aussie”. Welcome to the team @shaeleeshack 🤗
Our journey towards diversity and inclusiveness continues.
We have had a lot of people ask if the name of this competition will change since we are opening up to more countries this year and in the years to come.
The short answer is ‘no’. The name will remain the same.
We have added New Zealand, India and Indonesia to our audition locations this year. Inclusive, diverse and responsible- that is our promise and we are doing everything to deliver. None of this can be achieved in a day or a single season. But we are taking every step possible.
We have also responded to a lot of suggestions, feedback and comments. Please head to the Categories section of the COMPETITION page on our website to check the age and height requirements for each category. We have made some changes to stay true to our vision. More changes to follow next season.
