   I can tell you what it has been in the past.  It is entirely posssable
that it has changed and I haven't heard about it.
   The first part has been a challenge format.  All those who enter are
given a number of tokens.  They issue a challenge to another bard and wager
a token on the outcome of the challenge.  They pick a judge who is
acceptable to both and the challenge specifies the format.  This continues
until a pre-set time.  At that time the 3 bards with the most tokens are
selected as the finalists.
   In the final round the finalists are given a topic, and one houre to
compose a new piece that matches that topic.  You have to write something
new even if you already have a piece that matches.  They then perform that
new piece and it is judged by the outgoing bard and the B & B, or someone
they designate.

   Again, this is the format that has been used in the past, but it may have
been changed.
