‘Ugly’ holiday sweaters in the real world are limited to all the weirdness one can create with yarn, pompoms, sequins, and tiny jingle bells (okay, that actually allows for an endless amount of bizarre creations). But what would a collection of ‘ugly sweaters’ look like if they were made in Blender and worn in Decentraland?

Based on the numerous unique and outlandish Wearables the DCL community has already created to date, this Ugly Sweater Wearable Contest is sure to result in some winter Wearables that will raise eyebrows. Get creating, designers!

What do you have to do to enter?

The contest is open to anyone. Just create, publish, and submit your wackiest, holiday/winter-themed ‘ugly sweater’ Wearable using the official form: https://forms.gle/eMQJx2SVZ4EL6xAe9

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 Wearable on the Marketplace, as well as some other helpful information.

The contest opens today, December 1, and will run until Monday, December 19, 2022 7AM UTC. Winners will be contacted shortly afterwards by email.
