Welcome to Junior MasterChef Australia!

We are looking for amazing young cooks aged between 9 and 14 years from all over Australia to apply for Junior Masterchef Australia.

  • At least 9 years of age by 25th May 2020; and

If you love cooking and want to show off your skills in front of our judges, you can apply to take part and have the chance to be crowned the next Junior MasterChef Australia!

What we’re looking for:
  • You need to be very enthusiastic about cooking and spending time in the kitchen.
  • You need to be adventurous and open to learning new skills.
  • Ideally, cooking is something that you do often
  • You need to have cooked dishes on your own before (or under your parent’s supervision).
  • You need to have several things you can cook for the judges.
  • You need to be prepared to take some criticism (the judges may like some of what you cook, but there is also a chance they may not like other things about it).
  • The judges will be looking for how well you can cook and how delicious your food tastes, but they will also be looking for your potential. This means you may not be perfect at everything now but you could be one day.
  • And you can’t be scared of being on camera!

The Junior MasterChef Australia Audition Process

The most important thing to remember is that many thousands of Australian kids will apply to be on Junior MasterChef Australia and we value every single application we receive.

Unfortunately, there are only a limited number of places available on the show – so don’t be disappointed if you’re application is not successful this time – please continue to enjoy cooking, and we hope you and your family enjoy the series when it’s on TV.

What happens from here?

Once you’ve submitted your application, you could receive a phone call from our casting department. They will want to conduct a skype with you and your parent/guardian to find out more about you and your cooking and potential involvement on Junior MasterChef Australia. Please note. not all applicants will be contacted by our casting department.

Filming Dates

If you are selected to be a contestant on the show you will need to commit to 6 consecutive weeks of filming in our Junior MasterChef Australia studio in Melbourne during the period on or around July/August 2020. If you make it through to the finale you could win the title of Australia’s next Junior MasterChef!


The application is split into a series of sections and questions and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. You will also need to upload a video of you presenting a signature dish you have just cooked.

Your parent or guardian must sit with you while you answer the questions to see what you write and they must read through and agree to all the terms & conditions and give consent for your involvement in the series. The full terms & conditions are at the end of this form.
