We are encouraging creativity and self-expression. Get free with your Bhangra. This is not a traditional Bhangra competition, this is street style, no holds barred. Think up new moves. Wear costumes. Heck, make costumes. Use props. Make your own music edits. Use visual effects in the videos. Whatever you have to do to blow our minds. We ask only that your routine is bhangra ‘inspired’.
Your submissions will go through a screening process by experienced members of the Bhangra and dance communities and judged on creativity, synchronization and engagement.

Creativity: See above. Get wild. Show us something we’ve never seen before
Synchronization: We want to see some tite routines. Keep things locked in
Engagement: Comments? Likes? Reposts? All of that counts. If your audition goes viral, we’re paying attention.
For examples of a sample video submission see below:

sounds like it's more of a 2 vs 2 bhangra funk competition. or should we just call it funky bhangra at this point? or maybe just funky.
i'm assuming hk will be the lead judge.

good luck, hope there's a gtv 4kuhd live stream.
