€25,000 In Cash For Next MasterChef Champion

Applications are now open for the third season of MasterChef Ireland. There’s just under three weeks to get your applications in, the deadline for applications being 5.30pm on 22 July 2013.

The show needs no real introduction, having drawn in great TV audiences the past two years and setting Twitter alight whenever it screens on RTE. Under the watchful eye of Dylan McGrath and Nick Munier, those selected for the TV rounds this year will face the scrutiny of the judges (and the viewing public) in what’s a real pressure-cooker environment. If you think you’ve got what it takes to become Ireland’s next MasterChef, and bag €25,000 in cash in the process (would be nice seed money to start a food business!), then get your applications in sooner rather than later.

Registration this year is online and can be done at the following link (). If you have any difficulties in applying, email masterchef@shinawil.com.
