Ends on July 4, 2017

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.
