#SpookySeason Art Contest with Official Fantom Support!

With the launch of the official NFT marketplace Artion, we wanted our next contest to reach out to not only the SpookySwap community but include the entire Fantom Foundation community in a way that rewards the creativity and talent of our members. It’s amazing to see the countless pieces of fanart we’ve received of Grim and our other SpookySwap characters, and we want this next contest to support talented artists in crypto while building excitement for FTM.

We’re proud to announce our first #SpookySeason art contest with a total of $3000 in prizes!

Our SpookySwap art contest had more than 60 entrants

Reward: 1 Grand Prize winner receives: $500 in BOO, with an additional $500 matched by the Fantom Foundation’s 370M FTM Incentive, and our SpookySwapArt exclusive NFT trophy!

4 Runner-ups receive $250 of BOO, with an additional $250 matched by the Fantom Foundation’s 370M FTM Incentive, and a SpookySwapArt runner-up NFT ribbon!

Official Fantom Foundation Support

Fantom Foundation generously launched a new initiative, committing 370 million FTM to distribute to protocols developed on Fantom Opera. This new incentive program helps to welcome successful projects and investors on other chains to have a presence on one of the fastest growing DeFi ecosystems. To give back to the community, SpookySwap will match our initial prize of $1500 in BOO with an additional $1500 FTM!

We’re excited that this contribution will encourage more content creators and artists to participate and show the strengths of the Fantom Opera network to even more members of the crypto community!
