We were extremely impressed with the outcome of our successfully held video contest, which was met by great excitement from the community. The Community Video Contest managed to gather a total of 84 videos and, after a community VeVote, resulted in 10 highly talented winners. Check out the final winners list in the VeChain Foundation official YouTube Channel here. A big congratulations to all!
Today, the VeChain Foundation would like to unveil a new challenge and give the community the first hand opportunity to design the header for our official Twitter account!
We’re planning to spice up our social media profiles starting with Twitter. YOUR design may be featured on a monthly rotational basis! Even if you don’t make it into the Top 5 for the prize reward, as long as your design is great, we will feature your banner and full credits will be given.
Take this opportunity to showcase your artistic talent and creativity! Festive banners for holidays such as the upcoming Mid Autumn Festival and Christmas, illustrating the world of VeChain and our ‘everything is connected’ mantra, or milestones of the VeChain ecosystem are more than welcomed. The choice is yours.
Top 5 winners will be showcased first on @vechainofficial Twitter Header in the following months and share a prize of 3,000 USD or equivalent. All other quality submissions may also be featured after the Top 5.
