Together with HTC, the Decentraland Foundation will be offering prizes consisting of Vive Flow VR headsets + MANA for the best videos that show what you love about Decentraland. Each year’s Film Club contest always yields amazing and inspiring creations from Decentraland’s community which are then featured at Decentraland’s Birthday Party event for everyone to enjoy—this year the expectations are as high as ever. There are so many different things to do in Decentraland and reasons to love it—share yours with the world!

What do you have to do to enter?

Your video must be safe for work and should be directly related to Decentraland.

Prizes

This year, contest partner HTC is providing 10 of their Vive Flow VR headsets to the top winners of the 2023 Film Club. One of the lightest VR headsets currently on the market that only requires a single USB-C connection and a Bluetooth-connected smartphone to be used, the Vive Flow is one of the most portable VR options available. Once connected to the Vive app store, you can enjoy calming meditation experiences, explore virtual lands, play games, and watch movies. Although it can’t be used to explore Decentraland, it still makes a pretty cool prize! The top 3 winners will also receive MANA prizes in addition to a Vive Flow VR headset.

In addition to the above prizes, the top 10 winners will also be featured on Decentraland’s Twitter. All top submissions will appear in the special video being prepared for Decentraland’s 3rd Birthday on February 20, so be sure to create something awesome to share with the rest of the community!
