BNB Chain and LiveArt Announce World Cup-Inspired Open Call to Artists Working in Digital Media
BNB Chain and LiveArt celebrate the World Cup with an open art call, The LiveArt Championship.
New York, NY (PRUnderground) October 21st, 2022
To celebrate the World Cup, BNB Chain and LiveArt, the web3 platform transforming the art market, announced an art hackathon (Hackarthon), The LiveArt Championship. After the success of the LiveArt Global 100 in summer 2022, this is the platform’s second NFT exhibition and open call for artists all over the world working in digital media. LiveArt seeks to open up NFTs and Web3 to artists all over the world—giving artists a platform to create and sell their artworks— and to bring top curated artworks to their dedicated community.
Participating artists are invited to interpret artworks with innovation and creativity. The subject of these artworks can be wide ranging—World Cup athletes, soccer, or themes of competition. There are no limitations in medium: 2D, 3D, video, photography, painting, animation, moving, or still works of art are accepted.
All works submitted will be reviewed by the LiveArt panel, consisting of experienced curators. The top 20 artworks with the most Championship Pass votes will be presented on a leaderboard. These top 20 artists will form “The Dream Team” and will be eligible for rewards and benefits. The selected artworks will be minted on BNB Chain and will be traded on certified NFT exchanges (tofuNFT, Element). The top 20 works will be presented on the BNBChain LiveArt Championship landing page. The works will be displayed across LiveArt social media channels (#ChampionshipOnBNBChain), with bespoke editorial content and recurring Twitter Spaces and Discord channels featuring the artists.
LiveArt will distribute Championship Passes—tickets to participate in voting that double as commemorative NFTs—to art communities on BNB Chain. Championship Passes can be collected from the LiveArt community, partners, artists’ communities, DAO communities, and Binance communities. Pass holders will be able to vote for their favorite artworks from September 12th to December 5th. The most engaged voters in the community will have the opportunity to be rewarded with a Glory Pass from BNB Chain’s World Cup themed ecosystem and other perks from LiveArt partners. Glory Pass holders can participate in a World Cup prediction activity and several other activities designed by ecosystem partners to have a chance to win additional rewards.
