Televised on the Velocity Network, the 2015 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition featured some of the best builders at the SEMA Show as they competed for the title of SEMA’s Top Builder.

Applications for the 2016 SEMA Battle of the Builders® competition are now being accepted at This one-of-a-kind automotive competition features top builders from across the nation that have a display, feature or booth vehicle at the SEMA Show. Participants will showcase their vehicles during the annual event and a panel of top automotive experts will narrow it down to an elite 10. Finalists will then vote among themselves to be named the winner.

New this year will be the introduction of “Young Guns” (under 35) who will be singled out for special recognition. Builders with vehicles from all market segments are encouraged to enter. For more information and to enter the competition, visit
