The Winners of the Creator Contest Are Here!
Check out the grand prize winners from Decentraland’s Creator Contest
Today, we are very pleased to share the winners of the Decentraland Creator Contest!
It’s been an exhilarating few weeks since the launch of the Builder and kickoff of the Contest, and we want to thank everyone who participated in the event and submitted their creations. We were staggered by the thousands of different scenes that were built in such a short time.
How to collect your winnings
If you were selected as one of the 50 finalists, we’ll be contacting you by email with instructions on how to collect your prize.
If one or more of your scenes qualified for the 100 MANA reward, then you can expect to receive your prize delivered to the ETH address that you included with your scene submission early next week.
Putting Decentraland’s LANDscape in the hands of the community
At Decentraland, we don’t think you should have to be a master 3D modeler or coder to craft the look and feel of your LAND.
You shouldn’t even have to own LAND to lend a hand in shaping Genesis City.
The obvious solution was the Builder. With a range of basic models to jumpstart your imagination and a hands-on interface, it allows anyone to realize their vision for the virtual world. However big, or small. No matter where in the “real” world you live.
The Builder works across nations, cultures, and languages - bringing us all together through the shared experience of designing virtual places that we all get to experience together. Nothing demonstrates these values of collaboration and unbridled imagination more than the Creator Contest, and we can’t wait to help organize similar events in the future.
So, without further delay, here are the top three scenes!
First Place - 200000 MANA + 3 parcels of LAND
Virtual worlds need not be limited by the normal laws of physics. The builder of this scene took that to heart when building their panorama of multiple interconnected platforms, each magically floating in space. Cascading waterfalls, vertigo inducing rope bridges, and comfortingly familiar natural features all work together to create a sense of wonder and awe in this first place winning scene.
Second Place - 150000 MANA + 2 parcels of LAND
The Builder encourages creative and novel uses of common items, and the second place builder crushed this challenge with style. A stone giant takes center stage in this scene, wreaking havoc for anyone (or anything) standing in its way. The level of detail and sense of movement bring the scene to life.
Third Place - 100000 MANA + 1 parcel of LAND
In this uniquely creative composition, the third place builder blends a larger than life dragon with a seemingly tranquil temple garden. Color plays a strong role in this scene: we love the texture and variety it provides. Who do you think summoned the Great Dragon, and how does it bode for the inhabitants of the temple?
