Motivate developers and their teams to continue developing websites / products that are relevant to the Free TON ecosystem. To create healthy competition for the development of websites / products in the Free TON ecosystem in the long term. So that the projects do not stop after the contests, but continue to develop and bring benefits. So that new projects appear outside of contests, so that there is more motivation for website / product developers and their teams to improve their project.
UPD. 1. Added clarification that not only websites but also products. Bots and DeBots are welcome.
UPD. 2. The survey has been updated. Added: “Websites / products that have not received prizes or funding for a period of 3 months prior to the start date of the contest are allowed to participate.”
Each participant can offer a website / product in this topic that is worthy of an award. In your offer, you need to specify a link to the website, contacts of the developer or a team representative (telegram or forum). You can offer either your own website or any website / product. The number of nominations from one participant is not limited. We need the data.
The approximate time for the nomination is 2 weeks.
We want to discuss this openly with the community in order to choose the most balanced solution.

- What work has been done to improve the UX for the convenience of users.
- Plans for further development.
- Only products (websites, debots, bots) that have not received prizes or funding for a period of 3 months prior to the start date of the contest but at the same time continue to develop their project.
- The product is available for use and in working condition.
An application for participation in the contest can be submitted by anyone who meets these requirements.
The prize fund for the contest is 40 000 TONs.
The calculation of the distribution of prizes by percentage will be made in an Excel table.
Only submissions with an average score equal to or more than 5.0 can get a reward.
- 5000 TONs 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.
- The percentage of tokens awarded to the jury will be distributed based on the number of votes each juror casts.
- For example, if one juror votes 50 times and another juror votes 5 times, the juror who votes 50 times will get 10 times more tokens than the juror who votes 5 times.
- Feedback is mandatory in order to collect any rewards.
The criteria are necessary to identify the quality of the work and transparency of the judging. The maximum possible score is 10. It consists of the following components:
1-4 Utility (Usefulness for to the Free TON ecosystem / community members)
1-2 Quality of product
1-2 UX (How convenient is it to use the product)
0-2 At the discretion of the jury. Overall impression. (Note to the judges: Since this contest is experimental and combines three categories of products (websites, debots and bots), you should not focus too much on the graphic component, and reduce the score for the Design and UI. But if everything is really bad, that’s what the overall impression is for.)
And remember the main thing, we do not vote for the contestant, but for the contest work.
- 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.
