Converse Pro Streets competition aims to showcase local urban talent such as dancing, skating, football skills, biking or anything else considered undiscovered and underground and shows off the creativity of their local area.

People are encouraged to upload short videos of themselves performing their talent to where visitors to the site can vote on their favourite act.

Converse Pro Streets cameras will also be situated across five different London venues to film talent: Ladbroke Grove, Brixton, Finsbury Park, Camden and Mile End – full addresses can be found below.

The act with the most votes will be in with a chance of winning a trip with Converse to LA and a video street kit.
