DMC World DJ Championships is an annual DJ competition hosted by Disco Mix Club (DMC) which began in 1985.

DMC’s World DJ Championships, sponsored internationally by Technics and Ortofon, has grown over the years and the formats of its competitions have developed along with demand.[citation needed] Originally intended to be a DJ mixing battle, DJ Cheese introduced scratching in his routine in 1986, changing the course of future DMC battles.

The DJs are allowed a period of exactly six minutes to perform.
