Is StarNow a scam?

StarNow is an award winning casting website that has operated for over 15 years.  If you need some reassurance that we're a legitimate business, please see the information below about how StarNow works, some of the amazing opportunities we offer, and how we manage the castings on the site.

What is StarNow?

StarNow connects talent with opportunities. Casting professionals list their auditions and jobs on the site, and our members apply to them.

We are not an agency and we don't take a commission. It's 100% free to list an audition or job, and it's also free to join StarNow and create a trial profile. For a small monthly fee, you can become a subscriber and apply to unlimited auditions & jobs, add more photos and media to your profile, and appear in the Talent Directory.

What safety policies do you have in place?

Every audition and job listing that appears on StarNow is checked by our dedicated Customer Support team. We don't publish every casting call submitted to us - when appropriate, we ask questions, request background information, and decline casting calls that don't meet our guidelines.  We use sophisticated software to monitor content and to help ensure everyone using our site works within our community guidelines.

We are also lucky to have a strong community of conscientious members, who alert us to any jobs or auditions that appear suspicious so we can remove them instantly if necessary.

What opportunities are there for StarNow members?

Our members are cast in great projects every day! We have top models and film, stage, and TV actors, reality stars, and many other members who have launched their careers via StarNow.

Major castings to appear on StarNow include X Factor, Big Brother Australia, The Voice, and Beauty and the Geek, as well as big feature films, including The Hobbit and Ron Howard's The Rush.

StarNow member Annelise Hall was hand-picked to take part in the prestigious Hollywood Immersive programme.
