Hosted by Zero Hour Studio based in NYC, four co-ed contestants are selected from submissions received from around the world.
All of the creatives tackle the same creative brief while their desktops are live streamed in real-time for the world to see. All tools and techniques are valid.
Each week, one contestant is eliminated based on audience votes until the winner lays claim to the Monarch crown.
Each round’s creative brief is released to competitors exactly 24 hours before each week's livestream competition.
Contestants only have 45 minutes to execute their concept from start to finish. No pre-made assets are allowed.
At the end of the 45 minutes, all pens are laid down and the final designs reviewed.
The winners are determined by a live poll voted on in real-time by the livestream audience.
In the case of a draw during normal rounds, all contenders return. During a final match, the winning vote is cast by the show's host.
