How to enter:

Only one entry per person is allowed. Submitting more than one will get your entries disqualified. Record yourself on video audio mixing, or capture your video mix. Please keep your mix “radio friendly”, without explicit language or imagery.  Be creative, go nuts, use as many decks as you want!  Upload it to youtube as a reply to Hercules Product specialist Steve Sharp’s official contest announcement video on his youtube channel.  You may use any D.J. performance software that is compatible with Hercules controllers (ie. Djuced, Virtual DJ, Traktor), and you may use PC or Mac (your choice).  Be sure to list in the description which controller and which software you’re using, and please tag “Hercules, it’s my turn” in your submission.  Judges may ask to verify your setup.  Employees of Hercules, Mobile Beat, or D.J.s already sponsored by Hercules are not eligible to enter.  By entering, you’re agreeing to allow Hercules to use your name and likeness and your submission (in whole or part) for advertising, marketing, and other promotional purposes without compensation.  Contestants are solely responsible for the content of their video submission, including copyright issues.  Hercules is not responsible for entries that are lost, incomplete, or otherwise not correctly submitted, including (but not limited to) computer failure of any kind.  In the event youtube takes down a contestant’s submission (within the eligibility period), alternate means of submitting a mix will be offered (contact Steve Sharp, if this happens).  Contestants agree to hold Hercules, Steve Sharp and all involved parties harmless in the event of any problems entering the contest.

Taxes and any other fees are the responsibility of the winning contestant, as are parking fees, and/or transportation to and from the international airport closest to the winner.  In the event a passport is needed for travel to Las Vegas, the winning contestant is responsible for having one.  In the event any of these conditions cannot be met, prize is forfeited.  Hercules reserves the right to substitute prizes of equal or greater value to any of the winning contestants, however, if the grand prize winner cannot attend, or travel to the the award destination, prize may be forfeited, with no further award.

Contest begins now, and entries will be accepted until 11 p.m. Pacific Time December 15, 2012.  Entries posted after this time will be disqualified.  Contestants agree to conduct themselves in a courteous manner during the contest as well as during the Mobile Beat convention, should they win.  Violations of this can result in cancellation of the prize award.

Prize is non-transferrable, and cannot be substituted to a different prize.  Winner must be available for travel and participation on the designated dates.  Air travel will be provided via coach/economy class, and hotel accommodations in a standard room at the Riveria, Las Vegas.

Grand prize winner will be announced within 7 days of the conclusion of the contest (on or before December 22).  Good luck!”
