Focused on helping the next generation of talent grow, HyperX today announced Queued Up – a new showcase that identifies and celebrates all types of talent in the digital entertainment space.
The inaugural 2021 Queued Up showcase will focus on elevating and empowering rising content creators across social channels like Twitch, YouTube Gaming, and Facebook.
The Queued Up class will receive the HyperX Heroes treatment, gaming room revamp, and be featured in collaborative content series/digital activations through a six-month paid contract as a HyperX Ambassador.
Fans can vote online from October 12th – 22nd, 2021; the top five stars of the 2021 Queued Up class will be announced on October 30th, 2021 at a celebratory livestream event at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas.
During the celebratory event, the 2021 Queued Up class and current HyperX talents will take over the HyperX Livestream for a series of talent-driven segments where they can play their favorite games, get to know each other, and give the online audience the opportunity to meet them as HyperX Queued Up stars.
Each year Queued Up will feature a class of five content creators chosen and showcased to the world. The Queued Up class will receive the HyperX Heroes treatment and will be featured in a collaborative content series and digital activations with other HyperX Heroes. They will also receive a gaming room revamp complete with a full setup including a suite of HyperX products, as well as a six-month paid contract as a HyperX Ambassador.
Queued Up stars will be chosen by an internal selection committee and finalists will be voted on by the HyperX community. An internal submission period will begin in September and the selected 20 individuals will be notified in early October.
