Contest Proposal: Free TON PR Contest (animation video)

Short description:

Create viral animation videos for Free TON



Contest entry period:

March 20, 12:00 PM UTC - April 20, 24:00 PM UTC.


Increase in the number of marketing materials necessary for project promotion and recognition in the media field. To see once - better than read 100 times. Many projects have created low budget video with animations. The videos tell about the project in an understandable way.


The created viral videos will become 1 stage for studying the project. Stage 2 - animation videos with effects that tell about the nuances of the project. Viral videos should grab attention and launch buzz marketing. Every year it is possible to host a competition for videos of an informative nature.

General requirements:

High quality animation

Using 2D characters or 3D effects

Texts / phrases in the video only in English

Association with Free TON

Duration 15-40 sec

Evaluation criteria and winning conditions:

High-quality work

Free TON related

Viral effect


The videos will be posted on YouTube April 21, 24:00 PM UTC, after which they will have 1 week to compete for the number of views. The winners will take prizes based on the number of views they receive in period from April 21, 24:00 PM UTC to April 27, 24:00 PM UTC.

Winners must provide statistics on views and before posting a video on YouTube, they will be registered in the application against cheating views. For example -


1st prize…………………………20,000 Tons

2nd prize……………………….10,000 Tons

3rd prize………………………. 5,000 Tons

Next 10 runners up…………. 1,000 Tons each

Jury rewards:

An amount equal to 5% of the sum total of all total tokens actually awarded will be distributed equally between all jurors who vote and provide feedback. Both voting and feedback are mandatory in order to collect the reward.

Procedural remarks:

Participants must upload their work correctly so it can be viewed and accessible in the formats described. If work is inaccessible or does not fit the criteria described, the submission may be void by jurors.
Participants must submit their work before the closing of the filing of applications. If not submitted on time, the submission will not count.
If the number of participants is less than the amount of prizes available, the excess prize awards are void.

Examples of viral video scripts (my scripts)


no. they should be rated only via they viral property. instead jurors let viewers decide. the one who’s work receives 100k views on youtube will get first place. second is 50k views. third place 10k. something like that.

two dozens of people by definition can NOT decide what’s viral and what is not. even if they are experts. because otherwise they would be able to create viral videos about free ton themselves.


Wow! What a terms! :slight_smile:
Almost 2 months in advance

Thanks. Great point.

Animation video production will also need time.

how expensive it is to create, for example, 100k fake views on youtube? we should take that into account so the number of views should be big enough.

Hmm… I think the winners will need to provide view statistics.

No, I mean, the contest doesn’t start until March 20
Until March 20, almost 2 months

True, but remember that virality isn’t everything.
It should also talk about Free TON, provide useful and correct information, etc.
I think an approach a little similar to what mitja has proposed for pr agencies is the way to go.
A signed ok from a trusted community member before + techinical/analytics jury to make sure there was actual virality.

no, this exact contest is only about virality. explaining basics is stage 2. and virality is number of views and comments and shares and all that.

don`t think this is a good investment of tokens

Размещение работ конкурса на yuotube поддерживаю. В отличие от предыдущих конкурсов с размещением в твитер и инстаграм, идея с трубой лучше. Сомневаюсь в объективности оценки конкурса, так как вижу возможность накруток. В целом предложение поддерживаю. Я за любое продвижение Free TON в масс медиа и распределение токенов.

Есть доступ комментирования и просмотру. Зачем доступ к редактированию? Сценарии доступны.

Сейчас документ открывается. Когда писал предыдущее сообщение доступа к документу не было никакого. Было только сообщение, что доступ к документу закрыт.

We have video contest before New Year, why Free TON Community need one more now?

Viral animation video?

Why I cant see 100500 videos about FREE TON on YouTube?

Why do we need 100500 bad videos with zero value?

1 competition will bring 100,500 videos that will increase the total coverage and make the PR better.

And due to the increase in the number of videos on YouTube, the project will be noticed. If you do not understand how marketing works - I will not give this knowledge.

And the project will not have to buy 100,500 videos. The price of 100,500 videos is 1 contest.

This is a total saving on PR.
