Categories of Arts for NFTART Award Submission
NFTs can be tickets, memes, artwork, music, trading cards, and other digital assets that are uniquely identifiable on a blockchain. Art creators can submit their entries by submitting the following categories. They can be:
- Music Videos
So you’re a musician and want to be a part of the NFT action, right? Fortunately, for you, this award competition is a massive step towards a better music industry powered by true fans supporting their favorite artists, and allowing them to earn some money on the side as well. Just convert your music videos into NFTs and see the magic.
- Short Films
Creators can turn their short films into an NFT, and publish them directly on the Blockchain, which keeps a ledger of all its owners. This way film creators can become a part of this contest.
Nowadays, memes are also becoming a significant part of popular culture and are instantly popular with internet users. They are also associated with NFTs. Selling memes like NFTs shows the potential for unique meme creators to participate in this award competition.
Images are digital and can be scanned digitally, and it is easy for photographers to earn money and get the credit they deserve for their art. And the fascinating thing about this is that while the purchaser owns the property, the photographer still enjoys reproduction and copyright authority. An added benefit of image conversion into NFTs is that creators have a large following with a strong fondness for their work.
Yes, GIFs can also be sold as an NFT. Anyone out there can create a GIF and turn it into NFT on the Blockchain to be a part of this competition and put it up for sale.
