THE serene and accomplished voice of Springfields' Tammy Mathieson saw her win the prestigious "Star is Born" senior competition in Ipswich Mall on Thursday night.

Ms Mathieson, of Springfield, sung Oh Holy Night on an evening that also doubled as the launch of Ipswich's 2012 Christmas campaign 'Tis the Season, sponsored by the QT and Ipswich City Council. A Star is Born was also sponsored by Ipswich Events Corp.

The junior Star is Born winner, for 16 years and under, went to the trio called Savanah, Zoe and Mackenzie who performed a medley of It's a Hard Knock Life/Christmas with Santa.

Senior and junior winners now get the chance to perform at the Mayor's Carols by Candlelight at North Ipswich Reserve on December 8. Ms Mathieson, 19, is a seasoned performer with big goals.

"I've been in many [talent quests], I've won a few and I actually won this event a few years back," she said.

"I love it. Performing is my life. I recently started an international baccalaureate diploma majoring in music and performance so I spend a lot of time studying. And it is great to see everyone here in Ipswich community getting together tonight."

QT acting marketing manager and master of ceremonies for the event, Lauren Roche, said: "It was such an exciting night and it was lovely to see so many people out supporting Ipswich.

"The talent on display was wonderful and made it a difficult task for the judges to only choose two winners."

The night also included lantern markets, roving entertainment, free face-painting, free balloon artistry, a visit from Santa and the turning on of the Ipswich Christmas lights.
