Sponsored by GameLoud, JRV Films, and Band Bodega, prizes include $250 and a main stage slot for the first prize winner, $100 and a side stage slot for the second prize winner, and four other slots are available to other winners. A video recap of the winners’ performances will be provided by JRV Films and artist merchandise packages will also be provided courtesy of Band Bodega.
