In the few weeks since NFT Emotes came out, the community has already released almost 150 different kinds of poses, actions, and dance moves, and the recent additional feature of making Emotes looped has only added on to the potential possibilities. Now, with the Metaverse Music Festival just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about what Emotes you’d want to see stage-side—if ever there was a time for the ultimate dance battle, it will be during the Music Festival!
In order to help get that creative inspiration flowing, the Decentraland Foundation is holding a Music Festival Emote contest with some exciting prizes as an incentive, so you’d better open up Blender and start getting those avatars grooving!
What do you have to do to enter?
The contest is open to anyone. Just create, publish, and submit your best and most unique dancing/music festival-related Emote by filling out the official form: link
On the form you’ll be asked for your email, so you can be contacted if you’re chosen as a winner, and for the link to your Emote on the Marketplace. When publishing your Emote, you should also add the #MVMF22 tag to it in the Builder, more on that below.
The contest opens today, October 12 and will run until Monday, October 31, 2022 7AM UTC. Winners will be contacted shortly afterwards by email.
