MTV Tr3s is looking for the next big music act in the "Dame Un Break" competition which will give aspiring Latino artists a chance to compete in an online battle of the bands campaign on Ourstage.com, network officials announced.
"Dame Un Break" ("Give Me A Break"), presented by Wendy's, allows bands to audition online and viewers the chance to vote on Tr3s' Latin Music Channel on Ourstage.com. The winning act will have the opportunity to create a music video with Tr3s executives and a Grammy award-winning producer.
The final video will debut across multiple Tr3s screens as part of a 6-week promotional campaign that will also serve as a branding platform for Wendy's products.
Artists can submit their auditions through June 18 on dameunbreak.tr3s.com. The voting period for finalists will take place from July 2-16. A winner will be announced in late July.
"Music is in our DNA and we have had a great trajectory in discovering talent from Juanes through Prince Royce," said Jose Tillan GM & EVP of Tr3s, said in a prepared statement. "With 'Dame Un Break,' Tr3s will offer a platform for new talent to be able to share their music with the rest of the world ... and hopefully, along the way, we will find another Latin superstar in the making."
Tr3s: MTV, Música y Más is owned and operated by Viacom International Media Networks, a unit of Viacom Inc.
