No more excuses about not being near a regional DMC event. The first ever DMC Online DJ Championship will begin on February 3rd.
Each DJ can upload of video of his or her 2 minute set using any equipment they want. 2 DJ’s every 2 weeks will compete until the August Finals. The winner will be flown to the World Championships in London for the opportunity to showcase their winning set and compete in the eliminations.
As well as the impressive title and prizes, The 2011 DMC Online DJ Champion will win an expenses paid trip to the 2011 DMC World DJ Championships in London. He/she will be eligible to enter the live event alongside the World’s national DJ Champions or can opt to showcase his/her winning online battle set live on stage at the DMC World DJ Finals.
DJs competing can use any and all equipment in their online battle performances, however the DJ who wins The DMC Online DJ Championship will be required to abide by the rules and equipment stipulations of the live DMC World DJ Championships (which for the first time will allow programs such as Serato Scratch Live) in this year’s competitions, locally and nationally, worldwide.
Beginning Thursday, Feb. 3rd, 2011, competitors can upload their filmed 2 minute DJ showcases, which will go live to the public on March 3rd. The World viewers will vote and select the top 10 finalists, who will then be judged by former DMC World Champions. Fans can vote for as many DJs as they like, but only one time each, per DJ, per round. One champion and one vice-champion will advance every 2 weeks. There will be a total of 11 rounds. If a DJ does not make the top two in one round, he/she can try again and upload a set in any of the following rounds. While viewers may freely watch and vote for their favourite DJs, a £5 entry fee will be charged to each DJ per upload in the qualifying rounds.
The DMC Online DJ Championship Final will be held in August, 2011. The final 22 DJ contenders standing will each film and upload a full 6 minute showcase style DJ set. The worldwide audience will vote again to select the best of the best 10 finalists who will then be judged by former DMC World Champions.
