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[citation needed].

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

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the DMC World DJ Championship are being held exclusively online. Every country with a ruling DMC governing body is hosting its Online National Championships while all the other countries are compete in a "Rest of the World" battle. The National Championships performance have a duration of four minutes.[1]
