How Winners will be Picked

The contest ends on Wednesday, Dec. 21 at 11:59pm UTC. Here is how the winners will be picked:

  • The Sqwid team will go through the submissions and pick 10 NFTs
  • A community vote will then be held on Twitter to decide the final three NFT winners

Prizes

Prize amounts are subject to the quality of your NFT submissions, and will be based on the judging criteria point system below.

Criteria for Judging

We’re going to use a point system to choose our NFT winners! One to five points will be awarded based on the criteria below to decide the final winners as well as a community vote. The community vote will not include the point system, it will be based on votes only.

1. Artist expression. Is your NFT original and unique?
2. Quality. Does your NFT have some elements of artistic composition?
3. The “wow” impact. Does your NFT artwork make us go, “wowowow!”?
4. Rarity. How uncommon is your NFT relative to other NFTs in the same collection or vibe?

Point system

Anything below 3 out of 5 will not qualify for a prize.

5 out of 5 = 100% of the final prize
4 out of 5 = 80% of the final prize
3 out of 5 = 60% of the final prize

For example, if you win first place but your NFT was graded a 4 out of 5, you will win 80% of the $1,800. If you win second place and get a 5 out of 5, you will get the full $1,000. If you win third place and get a 3 out of 5, you will win 60% of $750.

After winners are finalized, the Sqwid team will reach out to confirm wallet addresses and send USDT prizes, and talk about next promotional steps. Please expect a week or two of reviews, and the community poll, before final winners are picked. Stay close to follow the updates on our Twitter!

Psst! We’re having an AMA this week to talk about all the Technical Updates that have happened on Sqwid so far. Save the date and time now!
