Digital Amateur Night Contest

Inspired by Apollo mainstay Amateur Night at the Apollo, HBO is hosting Digital Amateur Night! We’re calling on amateur artists to share original videos, 60 seconds or less, of their performances with @HBODocs on Twitter using #AmateurNightContest and #TheApolloDoc. Those who enter could win a trip to New York City and the opportunity to perform on the Apollo’s iconic stage during Amateur Night!

The HBO Digital Amateur Night Contest has ended.

About Amateur Night at the Apollo

Sponsored by Coca-Cola

Amateur Night at the Apollo is one of New York’s most popular live entertainment experiences, attracting performers and audiences the world over. The classic competition is known for its notoriously “tough” audience, gleefully deciding who will “be good or be gone.” Who will be the next Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown or Black Thought? At Amateur Night, you decide.

No purchase necessary. Ends 10/25/19. Open to residents of the 48 United States, D.C. & PR, 18 and older (19+ in AL & NE, 21+ in MS). See Official Rules for details.
