Decentraland to Host Creator Contest

Decentraland is hosting a competition to reward creative and innovative applications of the upcoming Builder, the new drag-and-drop editor for the Decentraland platform.

Beginning in early March of 2019, Decentraland will host a competition for building scenes, the 3D environments hosted on the individual LAND parcels that make up the virtual world of Decentraland.

Participants in the Creator Contest will be among the first to use the Builder, Decentraland’s upcoming 3D drag-and-drop editor.

Thanks to the accessibility provided by the Builder, it will soon be easier than ever to start filling your LAND with rich, immersive, virtual experiences. So, everyone is encouraged to sign up, regardless of their technical background or experience in 3D design!

The Creator Contest is an exciting opportunity to both help fill Decentraland with rich content, and celebrate the launch of the Builder.

How to participate

Participants can register for the contest by submitting their email address at https://contest.decentraland.org. Decentraland will provide regular updates to participants via email, the official blog, and Twitter in the weeks leading up to the contest kick-off.

After the Builder is launched in early March, the contest will begin, leaving two weeks for people to create and submit up to 20 scenes. After two weeks, the contest will end and the judges panel will take 7 days to select the finalists.

Win MANA and LAND

Every single scene submitted that meets the minimum quality standards, as set by the panel of judges, will be rewarded with 100 MANA.

Additionally, Decentraland is offering grand prizes for the top 50 scenes from a total purse of over 900,000 MANA and 50 LAND parcels.

The top 5 finalists will receive LAND in prime locations in addition to the following MANA purses:

  • First place: 200000 MANA
  • Second place: 150000 MANA
  • Third place: 100000 MANA
  • Fourth place: 50000 MANA
  • Fifth place: 25000 MANA

The remaining 45 finalists will each receive LAND and 7500 MANA each.

Meet Decentraland’s New Builder

The development team at Decentraland is taking some of the core functionality provided by the SDK 5.0, and making it available in an easy-to-use editor, accessible directly from your web browser.

The first release of this tool, affectionately called “The Builder”, will allow people to create static scenes using a selection of hundreds of pre-built 3D models and assets, but Decentraland intends to release regular iterations of the Builder making it more robust and powerful — with the ultimate goal of providing near-feature parity with the developer-focused SDK.

What’s the timeline?

The Creator Contest will begin in conjunction with the release of the Builder: Decentraland’s target launch date sits in the first week of March. Participants can expect to receive regular technical updates from the development team.

After the contest begins, participants will have two weeks to create and submit their scenes. After a two week period, the panel of expert judges will take one week to assess submissions.
