In the qualifying round, each player has a chance to score as many points as possible. The three players with the top scores advance to the finals. The final round is played in the same way as the qualifying round, though players shoot according to the ascending order of their first round scores. In each round, the shots and the score are confirmed by the referee and the television instant replay system.<ref name="raptors"/><ref name="pistons">Billups Named As Participant in Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout.

Contestants compete for a total of $86,000 in prize money. The first place winner receives $35,000, the second place winner receives $22,500 and the third place winner receives $15,000. Fourth to sixth places winners receive $4,500 each.<ref name="pistons"/> From 1986 to 2002, eight participants were selected to participate in each season's shootout. Since then, the contest has been open to six players each season. The Three-Point Shootout was not held in 1999 due to the league's lockout.<ref name="lockout">Steele, David (December 9, 1998).

Larry Bird, the inaugural winner of this contest, and Craig Hodges have each won three straight times, while Mark Price, Jeff Hornacek, Peja Stojaković and Jason Kapono have each won two consecutive times. Hodges and Kapono are tied for the scoring record with 25 points. Hodges also holds the record for making 19 consecutive shots (which were not made in his 25-point round).

Miami Heat player James Jones, who won the contest in the 2010-11 season, is the defending champion.
