Our FameLab Ireland 2021 competition is now closed! Join us at the FameLab Ireland National Final on 30 September.

How does it work?

Due to on-going Covid-19 restrictions, the FameLab Ireland competition will take place online in 2021. As a result, some elements have had to be changed slightly but the overall structure and quality of the programme remains the same.
