Entrants will be divided into two age categories (13 - 17, 18 - 22) and will compete in five aspects of hip hop featured in the documentary: dance, graffiti art, lyrics/songwriting, DJ-ing and digital art.

Submissions will be accepted from Aug. 19 to Sept. 30 (DEADLINE EXTENDED). Voting will start the following week and will be open to the public from 8 a.m. Oct. 2 to the end of the day on Oct. 6. 

There will be one winner per age range per category. Winners will receive an award as well as a prize related to their category. All contestants that enter will be eligible to receive one of three SCETV swag packs.
