Twitch, the gaming-focused social platform, is premiering a new game show from its in-house studio, Twitch Studios. “Stream On,” which launches March 2018, is a game show created with the intent of helping the community’s content creators turn their passion for live-streaming into a career. The series is designed for creators who have made it to Twitch’s 25,000-member strong Partnership program, but still need a boost to make streaming a full-time career.
Currently, Twitch Studios is looking for the “most entertaining, personable, competitive-minded partnered streamers who have yet to become a household name on Twitch.” According to the company, the program will elevate visibility for up-and-coming Twitch Partnered creators.
Contestants will face challenges designed to test “important streamer skills,” and be evaluated by a panel of Twitch judges. Viewers will play an important role in choosing who advances and who is eliminated at each stage of the competition. The winning contestant will be awarded a grand prize of $5,000 per month for a year—a total of $60,000—in order to help take their streaming career to the next level.
Submission information for “Stream On” is accessible on the Twitch submission page. Currently, only Partners from the US, Canada, and UK are eligible for to apply.
Other content to come out of Twitch Studios include “Twitch Weekly,” a show about things the online community is doing and things Twitch is doing for the community, “FreshStock,” a live interactive series that spotlights Twitch’s community through their love of shoes, and the the mini-documentary Ironsights. The in-house studio also offers hosting and interview workshops.
