After a successful first edition, RISE Talent Contest is happening again this year, now larger and organized by EUNIC Jordan. Youngsters from all over the kingdom compete in four different categories: playing, singing, dancing and creating. Featuring 16 participants, the final talent show and award-ceremony will take place on 16 November 2019 at Al-Hussein Cultural Center - Ras Al Ain.
A call was launched between August and October 2019. The contest attracted over 100 applicants which were assessed and pre-selected by a jury.
In 2018, the European Union in Jordan created and funded RISE Talent Contest to promote and celebrate Jordan's youth talent and creativity in different artistic dimensions.
