Queued Up will select a ‘class of five’ to exhibit each year, beginning with a talent pool that fans can vote on.
The top five will be offered a six-month paid contract as HyperX ambassadors, as well as a gaming room makeover with HyperX items and a vacation to Las Vegas. They’ll also join the ‘HyperX Heroes,’ where they’ll participate in content series and digital activations alongside other ‘Heroes.’
Twenty creators were chosen in the first round, all of them streamed on Twitch. Some of these streamers have over 100,000 followers and are partners, while others are just getting started and have less than 10,000.
HyperX’s hand-picked selection committee, which included prominent content creators, gaming industry professionals, HyperX team members, and HyperX talent ambassadors, nominated these 20 creators.
The voting period begins on October 12th and ends on October 22nd, with the final votes cast on October 22. To vote, you must first register on the Queued Up website, after which you will be allowed to cast five votes per day for your favorite creators.
The five finalists will be announced at a webcast event on October 30th at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas, after voting closes on October 22nd. The 2021 Queued Up class will take over the webcast and play some games during the event.
“With our new annual Queued Up showcase, we aim to spotlight and appreciate the creativity of the growing number of content creators,” said Stephanie Winkler, director of marketing at HyperX. “HyperX is dedicated to assisting the next generation of talent establish and scale their brand by giving useful resources and an opportunity to elevate and empower passionate content creators.”
