An exciting new contest is coming to this year’s show: the BlizzCon2013 Talent Contest! Blizzard gamers are an incredibly talented bunch, and this is your opportunity to shine a spotlight on your skills and celebrate Blizzard gaming culture along with BlizzCon attendees and viewers from around the world.
Can you play the Diablo theme on a 12-string guitar? Can you sing Lament of the Highborn? Are you the living embodiment of Sarah Kerrigan? Does your band play a Blizzard-themed song you can’t wait for everyone to hear? Well, we can’t wait to watch you act, sing, dance, and strut your stuff live on stage at BlizzCon 2013!
To be considered, you’ll need to create a 2-minute video of you (or your band, troupe, or what have you) performing your Blizzard-themed talent, post it on YouTube, and submit a link (or if you’re part of a troupe, have your troupe’s spokesperson upload it). Below are some examples of the kind of acts we have in mind.
Remember, what follows are just some ideas and guidelines. We know you have skills we haven’t even dreamed of, so surprise us! We’re eagerly looking forward to seeing you in action.
- Drama! Re-enact a scene or monologue from a Blizzard game
- Comedy! Make us laugh Blizzard-inspired stand-up or sketch comedy
- Music! Perform an instrumental or vocal cover of a Blizzard song, or write and perform your own original composition
- Dance! Come up with an original dance routine set to Blizzard music or original Blizzard-themed compositions
Please don’t limit yourself, and don’t be afraid to show us your best, because we aren’t selecting finalists based on any pre-existing categories. Instead finalists will be selected based on talent, live performance (remember, you could be performing on stage!), humor, entertainment, originality, creativity, and strong Blizzard theming.
Submissions are now closed for this contest, but if you'd like to learn more about what you can expect to see onstage at the convention, you can visit the contest page. We'll be announcing the Grand Finalists in the coming weeks.
Please feel free to email any questions you might have to BlizzConContest@blizzard.com!
See you in the limelight!
