Modify - Tune - Compete - Win
Tuner Battlegrounds is an online competition portal hosted by PASMAG where automotive entusiasts vote for their favorite modified vehicles in head-to-head bracket competitions. HERE'S THE SPIN - rather than PASMAG staff selecting the 'Best of' show winners as judges, the responsibility is shared with the audience (the fans, show-goers and friends and family of the competitors). With a click of a button or new post on social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), the audience will be able to vote and select their favorite entry from round to round.
WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN? Hundreds of potential competitors submit their profiles in our Online Registration. Competitors can enter local Tuner Battlegrounds: #TBGLIVE events, as well as the year-long online competition, Tuner Battlegrounds: Championship.
WHERE DOES IT TAKE PLACE? The online voting takes place at www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. In the initial stages/rounds, voters simply sign-in with their existing Facebook account and can vote once per 24 hours. In the final stage, voters must generate a new post on their Instagram and/or Twitter accounts and use a dedicated hashtag of the final competitor they wish to vote for. The votes are tallied and the winner announced at the event and/or on our social channels.
