It’s official: we have just chosen the winner of our 2 Million Member competition!
Our lucky winner is Jacqueline Shepherd, who has just won a trip for two to Los Angeles.
We’ve also found our 2,000,000th member, Chantelle Mekki, who won a lifetime StarNow membership, on-site promotion, and a portfolio makeover, including a free photoshoot. We look forward to seeing her career progress over the coming months.
We’d also like to say a big thanks to all our members who entered - we wouldn’t have reached this magic 2,000,000th milestone without you!

We’re getting very close to having two million members on StarNow! Within the next few weeks, we should hit that magic 2,000,000th milestone.
The moment our two millionth member signs up, they will automatically win a StarNow prize package, including:
- A free lifetime StarNow membership.
- Free and ongoing promotion on StarNow: regular updates in our newsletters, a photo in our Talent Directory, links on our homepage, and on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
- Help with their portfolio (e.g. a professional acting course or photoshoot).
So, if you’ve got a friend who you think deserves to be discovered, tell them to register for free on StarNow – they could be our lucky two millionth member!
Once we hit two million, we’ll also be running a very cool competition for all StarNow members to say thanks for being part of our talented and inspiring community (hint: it involves a red carpet).
The sooner you help us hit two million, the sooner you’ll have a chance to win!

A massive congratulations to Miss Rugby Rebecca Morton who came 2nd Runner up in Miss England 2011 on the weekend. What a fantastic achievement for Rebecca!
Congratulations also go out to Miss Birmingham Natalie Cutler, who made it into the Top 5 and Miss Nottingham Emma Wallace who made it into the Top 15. We think all 3 girls have a massive future ahead of them.
More than 10,000 girls entered the Miss England 2011 competition, which was held at the Birmingham Metropole Hotel at the NEC for the second year running. The 58 girls from across the country who made it to the final night had already endured fierce competition in the heats and a semi-final stage to make it to the grand final.

Twice yearly at the end of each semester and its production period, Sydney Film School organises the popular SFS Film Festival to celebrate the completion of the semester’s productions and the graduation of the 1-year Diploma students. The two days of student film screenings are a great opportunity for current and future filmmakers to come together. This July in its 14th edition, the SFS Film Festival took place on Wednesday, July 13th and Thursday, July 14th at the Factory Theatre in Sydney’s suburb of Marrickville. The festival presented 51 short dramas and documentaries produced last semester by SFS students.
At the awards night on the 14th we were very proud to announce the winners of the Outstanding Performance Award to two StarNow members, Quentin Yung and Jonny Hawkins for their performances in "The Trip", which was directed by Angelo Lara. Another StarNow member Madeleine Levins, also won on the night, receiving highly commended for her involvement in 3 films that were all screened at the festival. A massive achievement by her.
