And for the lucky winner of Glasgow's Star Turn, one of the top prizes will be an appearance at next year's Scottish Variety Awards.
Who will follow in the footsteps of Emeli Sande, who appeared at the Awards earlier this year, will only be known once the judges have made their decision at the grand final in the city's Old Fruitmarket on Monday June 30.
It will be one of the liveliest events of the year, hosted by Clyde 1's Knoxy, and judged by Pop Idol winner and Evening Times' columnist Michelle McManus, comedian Sanjeev Kohli, TV newsreader Catriona Shearer and panto star Dean Park.
The winner will take home a £1000 prize but their appearance at the Scottish Variety Awards place will be a major coup.
The prestigious event, now heading into its fifth year, aims to promote Scotland's future stars, as well as raising money for charity.
The 2012 glittering ceremony, sponsored by sister paper The Herald, was hosted by Clyde 1 DJs Romeo and Knoxy at the Glasgow Crowne Plaza Hotel, and featured singing sensation Emeli, who won the Scottish Breakthrough artist of the Year gong.
Other performances on the night included a Queen-themed opening from the Glasgow Academy of Musical Theatre Arts and 12 UK Theatre School hopefuls, who performed a Proclaimers medley.
The annual event also attracts the city's glitterati in the audience, with designer John Amabile, chef Andrew Fairlie, Scottish entrepreneurs Sir Tom Hunter and Michelle Mone attending the event in March.
The awards are the brainchild of KJM Events managing director, Keira MacDougall and musician Laura Marks, who wanted to recognise Scotland's home-grown talent and up-and-coming stars.
It has quickly become one of the big events of the year, attracting celebrity performances, including Britain's Got Talent's Susan Boyle and Bishopbriggs songbird Amy Macdonald.
Keira and Laura are looking forward to welcoming the first Glasgow's Star Turn winner next year.
Keira said: "We are absolutely delighted to have the winner of Glasgow's Star Turn perform at the Variety Awards. We've had some amazing performers in the past and it fits in so well with what the awards are about, which is promoting talent.
"I'll be at Glasgow's Star Turn grand final and I'm looking forward to seeing what's out there, as we are always interested in new and different talent when it comes to nominations for the variety awards."
Laura Marks said: "The whole point of the awards is to promote up-and-coming talent so Glasgow's Star Turn ticks all the boxes, and we are always up for giving unknown people a chance to perform in front of people who are well known in the industry, so it's a really nice platform for them."
