“There are so many amazing content creators across different platforms, but the grind to get discovered can be difficult,” said Bryan Waddell, HOT POCKETS Brand Marketing Manager. “This contest is a significant opportunity for us to recognize the gaming community that has helped build the HOT POCKETS brand by supporting and amplifying the next generation of creators and their fans.”
Each submission period, thirty entrant creators will be chosen as finalists based on personality, expressiveness, creativity and engagement. 10 finalists per voting period will move forward, and then the gaming community will vote online for their favorite to become a winner and an official One20 creator. The 12 finalists who receive the most votes – one winner per month – will each receive an amazing prize pack, upgraded gear, content collaboration, digital promotion and more. They’ll also become HOT POCKETS brand ambassadors!
To enter, flex your gaming skills and tell the community who you are in a 120-second video. Then, during a submission period, post the video to your Twitter account with the #One20Contest hashtag. Finalists will be evaluated by a panel of judges led by professional esports commentator and host Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez. For all the contest details, including eligibility, entry dates, what needs to be in the video, and judging criteria, see the official rules at www.One20.gg.
“I’m all about uplifting and providing opportunities for all.
