BattleBots Application

Thank you for your interest in applying for BattleBots. We greatly appreciate your enthusiasm and eagerness to compete.

To get started follow these steps:

  1. Login or create an account
  2. Download and read the BattleBots Design and Tournament Rules
  3. Download the "How to get on BattleBots" PDF
  4. Read ALL Application instruction and questions thoroughly and carefully
  5. Create a new Application
  6. Fill out the online Application form in its entirety (you may save your work as you go over multiple sessions)
  7. When your Application is complete, submit it and blow us away with your robot design.
  8. Check back to see your status.
  9. Any questions email us

NOTE: The application period for the BattleBots 2020 season is now closed. That said we are accepting applications for the 2021 season. Bot builders may start creating applications (or continue working on previously submitted applications) as a pro-active measure. We suggest completing and submitting your application before the end of October 2021 (exact deadline will be made public at a later date).  

Also note that we’re asking applicants to design a robot, not build a robot. As building a robot is dangerous, time consuming and expensive, you should only start building if you are notified by BattleBots that your design submission has been accepted, and you have completed other entry procedures that will be required by our broadcast partners. If you decided to build before this, you do so at your own risk.

BattleBots Inc. and its affiliates reserve the right to reject any application for any reason and without explanation.

Good luck!
