Niftorian.com has closed its first Art Jam contest with a winning entry called “You Can Do It”. The quality of the nearly 30 pieces submitted during the contest was extremely high so congratulations to the winner and runner-up, who come from The Philippines and Germany. Niftorian is the NFT project associated with Niftorious and is a community for artists and collectors to meet, learn from each other, and discuss how to navigate the NFT art market.
The top prize was 0.11111 ETH and both finalists will receive a Founders Collection Mint Pass NFT. The contest ran for four days and closed on 16 November with four finalists chosen by votes from the community.
The winner and runner-up were then chosen after another round of voting and were announced live at a Niftorian AMA Town Hall on Discord. The other two finalists, unfortunately, had to be disqualified for breaking the rules of the contest.
There was also a giveaway for one of the voters which was chosen as random. The second Art Jam will start today. You can find the details of the contest and rules in the Niftorious Discord server. Art Jam 2 submissions are due no later than 11 am EST, November 23rd and the winner will be announced on the 24th at the Niftorian Town Hall.
The winning entry is by the artist Daling from the Philippines. He is a working student who loves to create art. Describing this piece, he says it, “is all about me, that art tells that no matter I struggle in life or failed, I always said to myself to never give up. I have a dream for my family and for myself, so fight until that dream will come true.” Find him on Twitter as @daling_arts.
