The contest is co-organised by the Macau Artistes Association, whose representatives are serving as judges for the preliminary and final rounds.

A new activity for this year's carnival, the contest aims to promote the uplifting culture of street dancing and provide young enthusiasts with a platform to showcase their talent. Open to children aged 7 to 12, teams of 3-8 participants compete in a preliminary round July 21, with the final round on July 24. The judging panel includes representatives from corporations and six mainstream local dance studios, and winners will be awarded with prizes for the top three spots.

The ICBC ePay Presents: Karaoke King Singing Competition 2022 and BNU Presents: Street Dance Competition 2022 are two of the many diverse activities and attractions of the 2022 Sands Shopping Carnival, which include the BOC Smart Kids Presents: Little Master Chef Workshop; a "Play and Fun" Kids Area and a mega food court presented by Bank of Communications; and daily lucky draws.

Featuring more than 580 booths, the carnival is the largest shopping event of its kind in Macao. It provides a free business platform for local SMEs and Sands retailers amid the pandemic period, while offering a fun weekend destination and summer hotspot for local residents and tourists. Providing an ideal shopping and leisure destination for families, the carnival aims to give back to the community by offering the best deals to Macao residents and tourists in order to stimulate domestic consumption and help boost the economy – in support of the Macao SAR government's Consume for the Economy initiative and the e-consumption voucher scheme.
