The percentage of tokens awarded to the jury will be distributed based on the number of votes each juror casts.

Feedback is mandatory in order to collect any rewards.

  • Every contest submission must have an identifiable contact that can be matched with your discussion forum description. If you did not provide a discussion forum description, then your submission must provide links to your online persona, such as a Telegram ID (preferred) or other direct contact information that can confirm that the work submitted is your own. If you fail to provide a means to verify that the submission is your own work, your submission may be rejected.

Hello. Cool.
“Software: Sketch / Figma / Adobe, layered document, icons and similar objects placed as vector files” - source images also attach?
Site header (menu) is required

2 Likes

Layered image is the source file.

Menu - good point, thanks.

Идея хорошая но как верно подмечено, можно в конструкторе сделать быстро ширпотреб и заработать, если будет допустим четкое указание что мест 5 и они неделимы , те не может быть два вторых и 5 третьих мест, тогда да люди будут стараться . Те жюри надо смотреть сначала все работы выбирать лучшие а только потом писать оценки в блокчейн. Извините что не перевел , нет времени)

I think that we should keep the landing light - no to overload visitors with lots of info. Plus, the site might (and should) evolve with time - new info blocks added, may be some inner pages as well.

Templates can’t be used as part of the rules for the contest. Thus, tilda/winx like services won’t work - these works will be rejected and won’t get into voting.

Maybe we want to add translation of this landing page to different languages (either as part of this contest or as a separate one)

3 Likes

Good point, but I’d add ‘multi language support’. Thanks!

Hello. This is not required for the website layout. Translation of the main documents is not yet ready.

2 Likes

Having the switch between languages is a good point, though

Automatically depending on the region.

The switch must be there in any case, auto-language picking is a thing for programming stage.
