BlizzCon® 2014 Talent Contest—Sign-Ups Now Open!

It’s time to submit your entry for the BlizzCon 2014 Talent Contest! The sign-up page is now open, and we can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store. To be considered, you and up to 4 of your friends will need to submit a 2-minute video of your act performing your Blizzard-themed talent.

For this year’s contest, we’ve secured the rights to some musical compositions that you can use as part of creating your act, if you wish. You can view the list of songs at the bottom of this blog, along with some important information you should read carefully if you plan to go that route.

You’ll find more information about this year’s Talent Contest, including the complete official rules, on the Event page, and remember that all submissions need be received by August 5 in order to be considered. Good luck!
