Blockchain company and NFT marketplace Enjin announced on October 28th that it will hold the second NFT Awards, following last year.
At the time of the announcement, the platform opened nominations and community voting on nftawards.org, a website dedicated to the event. Anyone can upload their NFT work and nominate themselves, or vote for their favorite work or artist.
Micah Johnson’s “ˈsä-v (ə-) rən-tē” was awarded “NFT of the Year” at the first NFT awards ceremony held in December 2020. Johnson will participate as a judge this time.
“The same year I won NFT of the Year, I was carrying my paintings in the rain to a local bar and carrying them home when none of them sold,” Johnson said in a statement.
“NFTs have empowered me to spread my message thanks to the support of collectors who believed in me, and the NFT Awards program is providing a venue to recognize and elevate the work of fellow creators in the NFT community.”
The NFT Awards award ceremony will be held on January 12, 2010, at the 3D virtual reality platform “Decentraland”, unlike last year’s live stream on Twitch and YouTube.
Decentraland is one of the 3D virtual reality metaverse platforms built using Ethereum’s smart contracts.
This year, the award event will be attended by members from a wide range of fields, including NFT creators, game developers, major cryptocurrency projects, and Metaverse projects.
Engin has also partnered with Blockchain Game Alliance, CoinMarketCap, Crypto.com, DappRadar, Decentraland, Product Hunt, Rarible, and VentureBeat for the event.
