In celebration of the Metaverse Fashion Week 2023, Decentraland is holding an emote contest. The metaverse has lined up several rewards for contestants and is excited to encourage Emote creators to get into the Metaverse Fashion Week mood. 

Emoting on The Runway

Starting February 16, participants can participate until March 20th in the Metaverse Fashion Week 2023 Emote event. Decentraland will feature the first-place winning emote in the Community Fashion Show and distribute 800 MANA to them. 

The metaverse will also be rewarding the second to fifth-place winning emote with 600 MANA.

Decentraland has shared that the contest is open to everyone. Participants must publish the emotes in the Marketplace and submit their best and most unique emotes for the runway by filling out the dedicated form. 


Here’s a quick rundown of the rules;

  • Emote must be approved and published in the DCL marketplace before the contest deadline.
  • They should be Metaverse Fashion Week 2023 related and intended for the runway. 
  • Participants can submit up to three emotes and can only claim one prize. 
  • By submitting emotes, contestants consent to Decentraland using their submissions for marketing. 
  • Decentraland will deposit MANA to the creators’ wallet addresses shared in the form.

Creators must share their email with Decentraland, so Decentraland can contact them if their submission has won. 

Shibu, Art Director at Decentraland, Isa Souza Gomes, 3D animator and Decentraland, and PeanutButta, Community Manager at Decentraland, will be judging the contest. The judges will evaluate the emotes based on fluidity, movement quality of emotes, uniqueness, fun factor, and the Metaverse Fashion Week 2023 use case.
