Ends on July 4, 2017

TwitchCon is your event - and here's your chance to take the stage! Have knowledge to impart, a discussion to facilitate, a performance to give, or something to share? Submit your panel, workshop, live podcast or other type of session, here!

To give your (sure to be incredible) idea the best chance of making it onto the schedule, please read the guidelines below and follow the instructions while filling out your submission.

Selection Process

The ancient and sacred TwitchCon committee will begin accepting submissions on 05/01/2017. Submissions will close 07/03/17. Selected presenters will be notified of the status of their submission by no later than 07/17/2017.

If your session is accepted, all panel participants will be given TwitchCon speaker badges* for access to the show.  We will follow up with more detailed information about checking in and executing your session upon selection.

If we think there's a good match, the TwitchCon team may opt to put a featured broadcaster or broadcasters on your panel. You will be notified of this when your panel is accepted.

Best practices

Remember, TwitchCon is dedicated to Twitch’s community of partners, broadcasters, and viewers. To ensure attendees have the best possible experience, preference will be given to sessions that offer an interactive element based on Twitch community culture.

Sessions are scheduled by default to last one hour. Please let us know if, for whatever reason, you believe that your session should be scheduled for more or less time. This will be taken into account in the selection process, as it will impact scheduling.

Spelling, grammar and presentation matter in your submission. Show us that you will provide TwitchCon attendees a world-class, professional experience by reflecting that here.

*We cannot refund any tickets directly purchased before panel selections

We know that most of the best content on Twitch comes from the diverse and creative minds of our community! That’s why we've opened up our live event stage for segments produced by broadcasters themselves. Have a great idea for something you think our viewers would like to watch? Want to do a live episode of your show on our stage? Want to host your own interview with a game developer or industry influencer? We’re excited to hear what you have in mind. Submit your pitch to Twitch Studios here!

Please be advised that your submission may be similar to concept(s) submitted by another user or already under development by Twitch.  Twitch, its partners and participants do not bear any liability or responsibility to you in the event Twitch elects to include a piece of content that is similar to yours. 

We’ve seen time and time again how many great ideas and talents come straight from you, our community! As such, it’s our goal to provide all the resources, guidance, and opportunities we can to streamers with aspirations to achieve top-level production. We’re still a small team with limited resources, but we love to share what we have with our community in order to help them reach their goals. To that end, we’re opening lines of communication with our team to the community, in hopes of making Twitch Studios resources available to a few select streamers with great ideas. If you’re an aspiring producer, host, writer, or anything in the realm of video production who thinks we might have what you need in order to succeed, we are listening!

Please be advised that your submission may be similar to concept(s) submitted by another user or already under development by Twitch.  Twitch, its partners and participants do not bear any liability or responsibility to you in the event Twitch elects to include a piece of content that is similar to yours. 

Twitch Weekly airs every Friday at 1 p.m. PST/4 p.m. EST and is your source for the latest Twitch updates and news on events and the community.  Our "Meet & Greet" segment is a place for broadcasters to share their channel with the Twitch Weekly audience. Please fill out this form and provide your own "Video Spotlight" for consideration. If chosen, your video will air to thousands of fans who are looking to find new broadcasters to watch!  

Consider the following when creating your video:
  • Keep your video between 60 and 90 seconds in length
  • Have permission or own any music or other assets you utilize
  • Please don't use vulgar language and/or please censor with beeps any excessive profanity that may appear in any highlighted material you use
  • Show off! Talk about yourself, your channel, and show us your favorite highlights
  • Treat this like a personal commercial. Be original and creative. Make us laugh or make us cry. Or both!
  • If you need inspiration, check out these great examples made by MadameGandalf, flamingmonocle, and DenGenesis.

We'll notify you if we plan to play your video, so you can celebrate by broadcasting along with Twitch Weekly! Thanks for being a part of the Twitch community and Twitch Weekly!

To be considered you must:
  • Have a Twitch channel in good standing.
  • Live in the United States.

The best and brightest stars on Twitch are invited to showcase their talents live on stage at TwitchCon 2017 in the second-ever TwitchCon Talent Show! Last year’s successful show secured the place of performing artists on Twitch, featuring acts in theatre, comedy, dance, music, magic, and art. This year, we will be featuring an even more open call for acts, removing categorical restrictions and opening the showcase to any creator who has regularly streamed to Creative on Twitch.

In order to apply for consideration, performers must submit a video audition which will be reviewed by a selection panel at Twitch. Selected performers will be featured live on the main stage at TwitchCon 2017, as well as receiving free convention admission with a travel stipend. For official guidelines and more information, as well as to officially submit your audition, see below! 

What you must do (in brief):

  • Have a history of broadcasting to creative on Twitch. (...and, if applicable, stream the preparation of your act on Twitch Creative in the Talent Show community!)

  • Submit a video of your act for consideration.

  • If selected, attend TwitchCon, rehearse briefly, and perform!

 

What you must do (in detail):

  • Have a history of broadcasting to creative on Twitch.

    • Have a Twitch channel in good standing that has a few creative broadcasts available for viewing in “past broadcasts” or “highlights.”

    • If you stream any of the preparation of your act, stream to the Talent Show community! It isn’t required that you stream preparation of your act, but providing that content for viewing may give you a leg up in the selection process.

  • Submit a video of your act using the form below.

    • Acts may vary in length but should not exceed 5 minutes (however, your audition video may exceed this if you would like to provide additional explanation around your act). Please note that lengthier acts will not be considered more desirable than others; we expect most acts to be between 2 and 3 minutes long.

    • One person may submit multiple acts, but they must submit them separately using this form.

    • Auditions must be submitted on behalf of one person, so if your act includes multiple performers, please choose a representative to submit. Only this representative must have a Twitch channel with history of creative broadcast. However, all performers must participate in some way on the audition video.

    • All performances must consist solely of original material, or proof of permission must be included with the audition video. Covers and the like are not allowed without explicit written permission of the original author.

    • Acts may not contain nudity, excessive profanity, extreme depictions of violence, discriminatory or hate speech, or anything else that would be in violation of the Twitch Terms of Service and Code of Conduct.

  • Make plans to attend TwitchCon.

    • You must be able to attend TwitchCon in person in order to be selected.

    • Each performer will be provided with a badge for admission to TwitchCon and a travel stipend (to cover flight, accommodations, and other travel expenses) of $1500.

    • You will be required to attend a brief tech rehearsal in advance of the show.

FAQ:

Who is eligible to submit?

  • Anyone can submit an act for consideration, as long as they meet the outlined requirements! Just remember, we reserve all rights to decide who appears on our stage for whatever reason we see fit, Kappa.

If I’m selected, how will I get there?

  • There is no winner of the talent show itself - it’s a showcase of artists, not a competition. However, every performer selected will receive tickets to TwitchCon and a $1500 stipend, for travel, accommodations, shipping and the like.

Who exactly is choosing the acts for TwitchCon?

  • A panel of Twitch employees who have expertise in programming, performing arts, creative, and other related areas.

What kind of music can I perform or use to accompany my act?

  • Remember, only original music can be included in our show, so any acts that do not provide proof of permission to use music that is not original work will be rejected. This includes accompaniment music, such as a background track for dance, or soundtrack for monologue.
