Shaw Media is thrilled to announce today the renewal of its number one Food Network Canada series, Top Chef Canada.

A national casting call for Canada’s next Top Chef has begun, with applications available at www.topchefcanada.ca. The deadline for submitting applications is June 19, 2012.
The country’s best and brightest up-and-coming culinary stars, aged 19 years and older, are encouraged to visit www.topchefcanada.ca to download the application form. In addition to the online form, applicants must create a short video of themselves in action, showing off their cooking ability and on-camera personality. Casting is currently open and runs until June 19, 2012.
Staying true to the original show format, Top Chef Canada challenges competitors’ culinary skills to see who can cut it as Canada’s Top Chef, taking home the grand prize including $100,000. The intensity builds each week as the competitors vie for their shot at stardom and avoid elimination. Shaw Media will continue to work with Canadian production powerhouse, Insight Productions, for the third season, which will premiere in 2013 exclusively on Food Network Canada.
