At least one member of each Band must work in advertising, marketing, communications, or media. Bands must consist of at least two people, but not be more than eight people. Agencies/Companies can enter more than one band (so no need to worry about your punk rock style not meshing with your colleague’s smooth jazz quartet.)

The submission period runs from January 2014 to February 21, 2014.
A panel of judges will review all submissions and choose a shortlist of semi-finalists (final number to be determined based on the quantity of entries received) who are eligible to perform at the DC Band Together Event.
The shortlisted bands will be featured on the DCBandTogether.com website, where the public will vote on their favorites
The popular vote combined with the judges scoring will determine the final 6 bands to perform at the Battle for Glory on March 13, 2014 at Gypsy Sally’s.
The event will take place on March 13, 2014 at Gypsy Sally’s in Georgetown of Washington, DC.
The performing bands will battle it out on stage. Each band will perform up to three (3) songs or up to 10 minutes. The audience will vote for each act, with one winning band announced at the end of the show.
