Battle Royale Creativity Award Recipients

Artists Emerge would like to recognize the creative spirit of some of the Battle Royale videos. Beyond competition & the scores, these videos stand out for their decision to go above-and-beyond in the areas of concept / theme / costume / location / storytelling / production value.

 

Videos selected for the Creativity Award will be played throughout the Artists Emerge Edm & Vancouver events so that we can share your creation with our live audience. Congratulations! 

 

*Note: More recipients may be added once Finalists are announced. Stay tuned.
