Voxedit, the professional voxel editing software program for The Sandbox, maintains to host writer competitions, offering possibilities for customers to create and earn.
This month sees two contests going for walks concurrently! One for hot air balloons, and another in partnership with big name atlas for growing voxelized versions of the factions in their sport. The prizes for the pinnacle 10 finishers are huge. I exceptionally advise that everybody who is into voxel modifying, digital artwork, or even building cool stuff in Minecraft must check those contests. The software and entry to the contests, is completely loose.
While The Sandbox may have lost some of its hype to other virtual world / metaverse projects, it’s still a major player in the space. And an important part of The Sandbox ecosystem is user created content. This includes not only the games and Sandbox experiences, but also a large portion of the NPCs, objects, and other entities that are seen in-game! These objects are created using a free, easy to learn software called VoxEdit.
VoxEdit holds regular creation competitions to promote their tool and encourage content creators. General rules for these contests include keeping the entries appropriate (ie, no racism, sexual content, etc), making quality entries, and no plagiarizing. You can read the full list of rules at the VoxEdit Contest Guidelines.
Details on each contest are below. Good luck!
Hot Air Balloon Contest
The primary contest is rather easy. Layout a warm air balloon. But since it’s the sort of fundamental idea, creativity will play an critical component on this contest. Entrants could be compelled to consider how they can make their balloon stand out in a crowd of balloons. There are masses of real-life examples for concept, but given that there aren’t any actual-existence constraints here, i would count on to peer quite a few very particular entries (anybody up for making a steampunk balloon?)!
Balloons should not be larger than 512 voxels tall (which is pretty damn big) and the entire entity should not use a box larger than 512 voxels on each side.
Prizes for this contest are as follows:
- 1st place – 6,000 SAND
- 2nd place – 3,500 SAND

For this contest, designers are tasked with developing an inhabitant from one of the 3 factions — the oni, the ustur, or the dust. The three factions are quite distinctive. And whilst you can simply create some thing based on the photo here, it’d likely be wise to additionally examine approximately the factions to get more info and ideas.
There is also a secondary contest related to Star Atlas. For this one, the goal is to create a headpiece inspired by BLOND:ISH, an artist who creates for both The Sandbox and Star Atlas. This headpiece should fit the standard avatar. Personally, when I hear headpiece and space-theme mentioned together, my first thoughts go to The Fifth Element! And while I’m not really sure what sort of inspiration folks will get from BLOND:ISH, I do look forward to seeing the final creations!
The prizes for this contest are very hefty. First prize alone is worth about $50k at current values! Prizes include SAND tokens and Star Atlas NFTs.
