NonFungible.com is organizing the first competition to design an NFT (“non-fungible tokens”) mascot! Submissions are being accepted from April 29th to May 11th!

The creator of the most popular mascot will win at least 19 Ethereum (2,800€ / $ 3,200) worth of non-fungible tokens (rare game assets, special packs, characters, trading cards, …) — the full list of prizes is available at the end of this article.

If you still don’t know what an NFT is, I invite you to read these articles from Decentraland and 0xCert:

NO TIME TO READ ? PROPOSE YOUR CREATION RIGHT NOW!

The goal of the contest

The NFT ecosystem is made up of a number of stakeholders, games, artists and developers, working with passion on their project or facilitating the adoption of this emerging technology to the mainstream.

NonFungible.com has proposed to these industry players to join forces, organize this contest and offer an incredible Prize Pool to the winner!

The goal:

Some examples of values we see today in this ecosystem:

  • SHARING — We feel about sharing and helping each other to enhance the whole space
  • USE — We advocate utility before the financial value (reduce speculation)
  • VISION — The teams are deploying incredible imagination to build the vision and potential of a technology that only a small part of the population has heard of to date.

Notes :
At the time of submission, the mascot will have been shared through Creative Commons License (CC0) by the author. No property or commercial rights will be associated with the mascot and anyone should be free to use or modify the creations.

Rules and organization

The contest will be organized into 2 main steps:

MASCOT PROPOSITIONS [04.29.2019 → 05.11.2019]

Any artist, designer or amateur will have the opportunity to propose their creations. Creations will remain hidden throughout the proposal phase. Every artist may propose multiple mascots.

Proposals considered off-topic or copyright infringing by the organizers will be automatically withdrawn from the competition and will not be put to the vote. Creations must be unique and the author must have the authority to license the work as CC0.

Artists will be asked to submit their creations to the Monkey Survey platform, at this URL: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/nonfungible

| End of proposal phase: Saturday, May 11, 2019 at 23:59 UTC + 2 |

Note: The 6 mascots proposed on Twitter at the genesis of the contest are great examples! You can find them here and there.


PUBLIC VOTE [05.13.2019 → 05.26.2019]

The arts submitted during the proposal phase will be voted on for 2 weeks. Only one vote per user, authors can vote for their own mascot.

The distribution of votes will remain public throughout the phase until the day of the closing. Only one winner will be selected at the end of the voting phase. The work that has received the most votes from the public will be declared the winner.

The winner will be contacted by NonFungible.com team in the week following the end of the votes to proceed with the award ceremony.

| End of voting phase: Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 23:59 UTC + 2 |
