Calling All Artists for Gaming Artworks

crypto artists wanted play to earn game festival

The Play to Earn Game Festival will be coming to an old warehouse, offering exposition space for crypto artists and their artworks, a presentation area, a gaming arcade and a roof top for social gatherings. This next event is scheduled for March 2021, and Play to Earn is asking crypto artists to get in touch.

For the festival we’re looking for artists who want to create art inspired by video games, blockchain gaming, and cyberpunk. The venue will have a very grunge / underground look and feel combined with neon lights.

Just playing this as an open book: We request artists to create a gaming- or cyberpunk-inspired artworks. They mint 10 editions:

  • 1 donated to Play to Earn
  • 2 sold for $PLAY (by the artist)
  • the rest for whatever currency the artist wants

We will take care of the promotion through our website, newsletter and social media. During the event we will schedule a guided art tour at the venue, during which we will tell the audience more about each artwork.

In the header of this article I have combined some artworks from the following artists: NikaDanny, Jeremy Worst (NSFW), Signal Noise, Jerry Liu and Marv del Mundo.

These creations would definitely fit the profile. If you’re looking for some guidelines, we will curate based on the following parameters:

  • Related to video games, the internet or gaming culture
  • No focus on recognizable logos (not the ETH logo, nor the one from Nintendo), but logos in background are fine.
  • Animated artworks are a plus
  • Atmosphere: Cyberpunk / industrial / retro gaming
  • Erotic art is okay, hardcore porn is not.

If you’re interested or you know someone who’s interested, find us on Twitter @playtoearn or contact Robert on Discord nederob#9458 – We will keep accepting applications and have conversations until early March 2021. No rush, but let’s talk.

About Play to Earn Game Festival

The first Play to Earn Game Festival took place in November 2020. For 12 days anybody with a phone, desktop computer or VR headset could visit our virtual venue inside Cryptovoxels. The event had 6750 visits with peak moments on its first and final days. Visitors had the opportunity to learn about new and upcoming blockchain games by watching a rotating line-up of twelve games. The next Play to Earn Game Festival will improve the concept with more live elements and additional content during the event.
