What can I win?
First prize is $150 Cash! There are also cool, geeky prizes for 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mentions. And every act gets free entrance to the 2013 Geek Gala!
How does the judging work?
Our three guest judges will be scoring each act based on originality, dress/costume/character, sound/rhythm, audience interaction/participation and overall geek appeal.
Can I do…?
Unique acts are always appreciated, so be creative! A few things to keep in mind: keep it legal, keep it safe, and keep it PG-13. (Limit your swearing and keep your privates mostly private.)
How long can my act be? How long does my act have to be?
Your act should be at least 1 minute long and no more than 5 minutes. 3 minutes? Perfect!
How many people can be in my act?
How may people you got? All members of your act must perform on stage or pay for their event ticket. (C’mon, it’s for charity, so don’t be bogus about it.)
How big is the stage?
The stage will be about 20’w x 12’d. If that’s an issue, let us know; we have some flexibility.
What about audio/visual/tech?
We can play a CD/DVD for you if it’s clearly marked. We will also have a mic and a screen.
