If you want to submit online, log on to the #UltimateBandkada website, register and upload your 1-minute video performance of a song that incorporates two (2) or more musical genres.

From the pool of submitted entries, only eight (8) Bandkada finalists will be selected and will perform their original composition in the Grand Finale Concert Event in front of judges and experts. There will also be a voting period for your favorite Bandkada. The #UltimateBandkada will receive P100,000 + Management and Recording Contract. The 2nd and 3rd Placers will be awarded with P60,000 and P40,000 respectively. A special "Favorite ng Barkada Award" that gathered the most number of votes will take home P10,000.
