Attention all voxel artists, The Sandbox, in partnership with the head5 NFT collection by Deadmau5, just announced its latest VoxEdit contest. The goal is to create an asset (NPC, equipment, building) inspired by the mau5verse in VoxEdit. There is a 50,000 SAND tokens prize pool to be shared between the top 10 participants.
The contest is open to anyone and the rules are simple: Create an animated asset inspired by the mau5verse in VoxEdit, post it on Twitter and fill in a form. In order to be able to participate you must hold at least 1 head5 NFT in your wallet. These NFTs can be minted on the official head5 website for 0.15 ETH or be purchased on NFT marketplaces like Open Sea.
Of course, for a chance to win, you will need to show your creativity. Desiging a basic deadmau5 helmet won’t make you stand out. Don’t spam the contest with submissions as well, focus on quality over quantity! You can read the full guidelines and details on how to enter on this Medium article.
