JUDGING CRITERIA

Contestants will be judged by 3 judges on 4 weighted categories:

1. Technical and Mixing ability: Don’t trainwreck, and if something bad does happen… how good is the recovery? Does the set flow?

2. Creativity & Originality: This is where judges can add points for flare and rate track selection. Are they just playing the hits to solicite crowd reaction, or are they actually introducing the audience to new music, or preferably finding a creative way to do both.

3. Presentation and Showmanship: This includes all aspects of professionalism as well as how stage presence fits with the music being played.

4. Crowd Reaction: Bringing friends will help, but Judges will be instructed to award points on the reaction of the entire room not on screaming friends.
