To develop NEAR presence and boost NEAR artists on Metaverse, and also to build NEAR history on metaverse through art, the Metaverse DAO decided to create a prize for visual artists and musicians. The prize will be hosted together with an art exhibition and a music festival. We have the time to accept 10 submissions of musicians and the space to 30 submissions of visual artists. The winners of each category will receive 30 near, divided in 1st, 2nd and 3rd places (30 near for music plus 30 near for visual art).
For you to submit, you just need to send your piece/link here (minted on near or not minted) in the forum as a coment together with your near wallet adress. We will try to accept everybody, but if we have space or time issues, we will have to curate some artists. The selected artists will be able to mint their submissions in our historical store (nearmetaversehistory.mintbase1.near - Mintbase Store), if the submission is not a NFT yet. If it is already a NFT, it will be added to the competition, but not to the store. If the contester wants, s/he can send a copy of the submission to metaverse-dao.sputnik-dao.near, for us to keep as a historical object, never for sale.
Any submission could be selected as a winner from NEAR Metaverse Prize by our jury, composed by the three members of Metaverse DAO council. We will have six winners: 3 musicians and 3 visual artists (1st, 2nd and 3rd places with 15 Near, 10 near and 5 near respectively). The first winners will participate in an interview and will have their art showcased at the 1st number of NEAR Metaverse Magazine.
The exhibition will take place at a Createbase parcel (Createbase Piers - 1 Adalbertstraße - Cryptovoxels) on Cryptovoxels, at December 19th, when we will have our music festival and when winners will be selected. December 15th, we will close the submissions. Submissions for the prize start now.
After the prize, winners will be able to submit a payout proposal to Metaverse DAO.
