Announcing the #stick2web3 Sticker Market Competition with over $1,500 in Prizes

Status, Pictosis, OpenSea, Meme Factory and ENS are launching the #stick2web3 Sticker Market Competition beginning Thursday February, 20 2020, with a prize pool of over $1,500 for winning submissions!

#stick2web3 will celebrate the incredible web3 design community and feature their work which will be available for purchase in the Status App. All proceeds from sticker sales go directly to the artist. Simply put, we need your stickers in our recently released Status App.

The Sticker Market is a highly anticipated feature within Status as it enables users to have a bit of fun inside chat. Stickers offer a fun way for users to visually interact with their friends and family, and increase engagement levels within messaging apps.

WHO: Similar to the last Sticker Market Design Competition - #stickerheads, if you’re a person, then you qualify to participate in the competition. Sorry, unicorns and other mythical animals.

WHAT: A Sticker Design Competition split up into 2 Phases:

  • Phase 1 - Artists will create 1-5 sticker designs will create sticker designs that represent web3, decentralization, general memeness, and any of the partner projects in any way they would like. Artists will post their work on Pictosis and share their designs on Twitter with the #stick2web3 hashtag.  Check out the winning designs from last year's Sticker Market competition #stickerheads for inspiration.
  • Phase 2 - The top 5 designs from Phase 1 with the most in Pictosis and another top 5 chosen by our guest judges (from our partner projects) will move on to a community vote in the SNT Voting DApp.

WHERE: Artists will submit their work to the Pictosis Platform for official judging and to twitter using the hashtag #stick2web3. Remember, the community is in control here and will vote vote for the best work in Pictosis.
