OUT OF THIS WORLD EVENT CONTEST SUBMISSION CATEGORIES
Only submit 1 NFT per category | Only 2 NFTs total for the Event Contest
- Galactic Battle: Intergalactic battle wages in space, as the mighty fight to save the universe or take over a planet. Spaceships or armies clash in battles that will determine the future of millions. Airdropping from space, an army of spaceships descends on a planet, ready to take over or defend it. The intergalactic war is raging and so does your imagination.
- Spacebase: The Spacebase theme is all about creating out-of-this-world civilizations. Build a space station and spacecraft, populated with crew members and satellites, and make sure that the spaceport has everything needed including spaceships for a successful journey into the cosmos. There are no limitations when it comes to what you can build: if you can imagine it, you can create it!
- Retro SciFi: Retro Sci-Fi is a celebration of the dreams of yesteryear when alien and advanced technologies were out of this world and mid-century space travel was the stuff of science fiction. It’s a time when we imagined what might be possible if we could just get our hands on some alien technology. Think of Huxley, Bradberry, Clark, Wells, Verne, Stapledon, Asimov, Heinlein, Herbert, Le Guin, Dick…Retro SciFi takes you back to those heady days when there was no limit to what we could imagine—when humans were only limited by their imaginations.
- My Favorite Alien: Think of an alien as a creature from the galaxy so far away, that it’s impossible to even imagine. An Alien can be depicted as a friend or foe. Aliens can be luscious and beautiful or frightening and scary. The alien can enlighten or be dangerous to humans. Whatever alien comes to life, let it take us on a new adventure.
- Summer in Space: The Jetsons were right: As soon as you leave Earth’s atmosphere behind and step into the void, you’ll be greeted by a summertime wonderland of bubbly, brilliant pink oceans and bright, colorful sunsets that stretch across the night sky like a rainbow. There are no seasons up here, but there is plenty of fun—from swimming in space oceans to surfing on galaxies, there’s something for everyone!
There are two rounds of voting, and only the top 10 in each category go on to the second round where the celebrity judges will have the final say on the winners. Submitted NFTs will not be returned!
