More about the competition…
DMC was founded in 1983 and is the largest DJ organisation in the world. DMC have hosted the prestigious DMC World DJ Championships since 1985 – an event known for discovering some of the world’s most talented DJs such as DJ Q-Bert, DJ Craze and A-Trak who went on to become DJ Legends. DMC are offering aspiring and professional DJs the life changing opportunity to participate in the Online DJ Championship where one winner will be eligible to compete at the DMC World Finals in London in 2012 which includes travel and accommodation.
Between March 2012 and June 2012, there were three heats where DJs submitted a two-minute video showcasing their mixing skills (using any equipment) for the chance to be selected by DMC as one of the finalists for the Final Round. 30 finalists (as already selected from Rounds One, Two and Three) have proceeded to the Final Round where they are now required to submit a six-minute video demonstrating their skills and ability. The DMC World Champions will be on the judging panel throughout the Final Round to decide the supreme champion.
One winner (as selected from the 30 finalists) will be invited to attend the DMC World Finals on September 27th/September 28th at the HMV Forum, London. The winner has the option to compete live for the ultimate DJ title, or to join the world’s National DJ Champions as a VIP guest (World Final equipment rules apply). Travel and accommodation for three nights in London will be provided.
