The four finalists of this year’s competition will be highlighted along with other featured builders in a nationwide television special airing in 2021. The TV special, SEMA: Battle of the Builders, is scheduled to air on A+E Networks’ FYI and HISTORY’s DRIVE block in January 2021 (time and date to be announced).

The 2020 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition included more than 330 submissions from a talented pool of builders from around the globe. These individuals are the best of the best, showcasing their extreme talent, creativity and craftsmanship in modifying cars, trucks and SUVs. The Young Guns (builders 27 years and younger) category remains a fan favorite, culminating the next generation of builders who are eager to show off their creations.
