Short description

To promote Free TON, it is necessary to increase marketing materials that will tell partners, users and journalists about the project. One of these materials is an overview of the Free TON ecosystem.

Motivation

The goal of this contest is to show to the maximum number of people how fast the Free TON ecosystem is growing and how many applications appear on the TON blockchain every quarter. This contest is only one of the stages and can be repeated in the future (due to the fact that the ecosystem is growing very fast)

The work must contain the following components

  • Free TON Logo
  • Crypto wallets
  • Exchanges
  • Games on the TON blockchain
  • Useful tools
  • Media support and partners
  • DeFi tools

Hard criteria

Additional tools not mentioned in the list above.

Primary requirements

  • Each component must be completely unique. If the contest work has a source of inspiration or partial borrowing, the source must be indicated. Finding such a source without specifying it will lower the final score;
  • For typography, only an open source font can be used that contains characters for at least Latin and Cyrillic;
  • Participants should provide PNG/JPEG/SVG formats;
  • Otherwise, they will not receive their rewards.

Rewards

1 place……………………….…4,500 TONs

2 place……………………….……2,500 TONs

3 place………….…………………1,500 TONs

4-5 place…………………………500 TONs

Total prize pool - 10,000 TONs

Voting

  • Jury members who vote in this contest must have a solid understanding of branding and graphic design. Those jurors who don’t, should not vote or choose “Abstain.”
  • Jurors whose team(s) intend to participate in this contest by providing submissions lose their right to vote in this contest.
  • Each juror will vote by rating each submission on a scale of 1 to 10 or can choose to reject it if it does not meet requirements or choose to abstain from voting if they feel unqualified to judge.
  • Jurors will provide feedback on each submission.
  • The Jury will reject duplicate, sub-par, incomplete, or inappropriate submissions.

Evaluation criteria and winning conditions

  • High-quality work
  • Beautiful design
  • Viral effect

Jury rewards

10% will be divided equitably between all jurors who vote and provide feedback based on their votes’ quantity and quality. Both voting and feedback are mandatory to collect this reward.

Procedural reminders to all contestants

  • The community reserves the right not to pay remuneration to a member who has not fulfilled at least one of the important points in the “Primary requirements and winning conditions” section. This condition is valid even if the voting period has already passed and the participant has scored a sufficient rating to receive a reward.
  • All submissions should be published on the FreeTON forum under the topic with the discussion of the according contest, and at the governance platform located at gov.freeton.org to be considered valid submissions.
  • All submissions must be accessible for the Jury to open and view, so please double-check your submission. If the submission is inaccessible or does not fit the criteria described, jurors may reject the submission.
  • Contestants must submit their work before the closing of the filing of applications. If not submitted on time, the submission will not count.
  • All submissions must contain the contestant’s contact information, preferably a Telegram username by which jurors can verify that the submission belongs to the individual who submitted it. If not, jurors may reject your submission.
  • The content published in the forum and the provided PDF file should not differ, except for formatting. Otherwise, jurors may reject the submission.
  • If your submission has links to the work performed, the content of those links must have the contestant’s contact details, preferably a Telegram username, so jurors can match it and verify whom the work belongs to. If not, jurors may reject your submission.
  • Multiple submissions:
    • Each contestant has the right to provide several submissions if they contain different approaches to the contest problem’s solving. However, if works are not unique enough or differ just in insignificant details, jurors may reject such repeating submissions.
    • If the contestant wants to make an additional submission that overrides the one previously published, he must inform the Jury about this fact and indicate the correct revision to assess. In this case, only the indicated work will count. If the contestant hasn’t indicated the updated submission as the correct one, only the first one will count, the Jury will reject all the others.

For a cup of coffee to the creator of the contest:

An amount equal to 1% of the sum total of all total tokens awarded to contest winners will be distributed to the author of the contest:

Все 5 призов займут участники жури никто не будет участвовать!

Brilliant! Eventually, the most awaited contest has come into the existance😊. The Free TON needs sufficient graphical materials to promote. It would be the best if you have also mentioned something like, materials designed by the participants will be royalty free to use in the behalf of Free TON i.e. no copyright issue :))

This is a super necessary material for communicating with potential partners. It is necessary that representatives of companies see the entire scale of the Free TON community in a convenient way.

Of course, there will be few more contests like that, because we need more entry points for newcomers))

The idea is great! Although the prize for the first place could have been 3000 crystals.
Can it be in any form, for example a video?


Идея отличная! Хотя приз за первое место мог бы быть 3000 кристаллов.
Это может быть в любом виде, например видео?

I’d doubt using free fonts only. The source file can have the fonts as vectorized objects (to prevent legal issue).

Great, Useful contest in such a low budget.

We cannot avoid it((

If the fonts are vectorized + it’s for non-commercial use, any fonts can go as they are bought by designer and not re-distributed.

Поддерживаю идею запуска такого конкурса!

Maybe is it necessary to prescribe the format of the final result in the criteria? PNG / PDF / jpg /…

Good idea! Thank you! I’ll add it))

  • Participants should provide PNG/JPEG/SVG formats;

When new elements appear in the ecosystem, and there is no source file available, who will update this picture? A high-quality source file with clear layers that are easy to edit and add new information is the minimum that is needed. I also propose to extend the competition to two weeks. I understand that if there is a ready-made work, one day will be enough to submit it to the competition, but let’s still have respect for possible new contestants who can learn about the competition only from its announcement in the news.

There will be another contest in 1 year later maybe)) Also with SVG format it’s possible to edit it in Figma))

I suggest making a product that can be updated as needed without repeated contest. An SVG file is not always equal to a good source file with ordered layers. This should be a hard criterion.

And do not say later that no one writes BEFORE the launch of the contest :wink:

It is certainly should be a vector file.

Or PSD file. AI file. Figma file. Any source file that can be conveniently changed and edited. And why didn’t you continue discussing this picture in WD ?

Source file, indeed. Format - to the contestant’s liking. But the fonts should be vectorized.

Cool, I realized how important graphical materials are while creating DeCourse. So, this type of contest is really important. @Roman_D I am also waiting for you to see another contest proposal for the architecture design contests to exhibit the working mechanism of Free TON blockchain, DeBots, smart contracts, DePool, Free TON-based blockchain gaming, etc. It will help to increase the technical resources for sure :blush:
Thanks!
