Streaming video games is a huge business in 2019. Twitch.tv, Youtube Gaming, Mixer and others compete for the eyeballs of millions of viewers worldwide. NVIDIA wants to find three eager amateur streamers that have a chance to be trained by the best and use the latest PC hardware as part of their new RTX Stream On contest.
NVIDIA first launched its current generation RTX graphics cards last fall. The new cards are the fastest available GPUs for PC gaming, but they also pack some additional features that help users broadcast professional-looking streams, without the need for dedicated streaming hardware. To celebrate the introduction of new, streaming-optimized software suites, NVIDIA is hosting a competition where winners can receive the push they need to become the next big thing in streaming.
To enter, potential contestants should submit a 30-second video that explains why they should be the next big streamer to the official contest website. Once entries are collected after the contest ends on January 18, winners will be notified on January 22. The three finalists chosen will be coached up by some of the most popular streamers on earth, as well as have their streams featured on NVIDIA’s Twitch channel.
The eligibility requirements are as follows:
- Entrants have to be at least 18 years of age and live in the United States
- Entrants must have a minimum of 500 followers on their Twitch channel
- Video submissions must be accessible links on YouTube, Twitch, or Vimeo. No exceptions.
The winners have a chance to win a NVIDIA RTX 2080-powered PC custom-built for streaming. Those looking to get in on simplified streaming can make use of NVIDIA’s new RTX 2060 graphics cards and their dedicated hardware video encoders that allow high frame rates, even while broadcasting.
