NEO Global Development (NGD) has announced the NEO Creative Design Competition, calling on participants to submit designs for the NEO website, as well as icons for individual elements of the NEO platform. A prize pool of 201,000 RMB in GAS equivalent is up for grabs (approx. US $30,000), with 20 prizes available across the two tracks. Participants are encouraged to keep the theme of the “Smart Economy” at the heart of their designs.
The competition features two “tracks’. The first track is the website design portion of the competition. NGD states that “The NEO website plays an essential role in NEO’s brand” and that “It is a primary source of information for many developers, community members and businesses who are seeking resources or wanting to learn more about the platform.”
NGD asks participants to “consider the different user groups and their purpose for visiting the website” when working on their designs and to “communicate both the technological concepts of NEO and its community-driven nature, whilst keeping the Smart Economy vision in focus.”
First prize for winning the NEO website track of the competition is 40,000 RMB in GAS. Two second place prizes will be awarded at 20,000 RMB in GAS each, and three third place prizes will be awarded at 10,000 RMB in GAS each. NEO will also choose one submission each week to receive a “nominee award” with 1,000 RMB in GAS. The nominee award recognises quality submissions whilst encouraging others to enter.
The second competition track is the NEO icon design. Participants are tasked with designing icons for individual elements of the NEO ecosystem, such as NeoContract, NeoVM and NeoID to “explain and promote understanding of these concepts.”
NGD have stated that icon designs “should contain unique elements that reference the features and roles of each concept, whilst harmonizing with NEO’s visual identity.” Participants who wish compete are required to submit designs for at least five of the elements listed below.
First prize for winning the icon design track is 30,000 RMB in GAS. Two second place prizes will be awarded at 15,000 RMB in GAS each, and three third place prizes will be awarded at 7,000 RMB in GAS each. NEO will also choose one nominee award each week from the icon submissions to win 1,000 RMB in GAS.
The competition opened on September 12th with entries accepted until October 14th. Winners will be announced on October 22nd.
