Whaleshares has proven to be an amazing resource of awesome talent. The #ArtSoundtrack contest is all about combining and rewarding different fields of art. Whether you're a visual artist (and create drawings, paintings or photos) or a musician you can enter. More info in the sections below.

In round 1.1, 7 awesome Whaleshares visual artists have submitted their work. A staggering 25 votes were cast which proves the community spirit here. Without further ado, we'd like to present to you the winning visual artist of round 1.1:

Winner round 1.1: @mfestra

With 14 community votes and 1 peer vote, @mfestra's "Bears and Bulls" was a clear win. It vividly portraits the current crypto market and is spot on. Thanks a lot to @samprock, @megy, @corvo, @cinelonga, @mandelsage and @nyertun for displaying their talents as well. We welcome all of you to come back in round 2.1!

A big shout out to @cinelonga, @corvo and @samprock for a tied second place. All tokens will be transferred tomorrow.

Round 1.2 is now open for all Whaleshares musicians to create / submit a track that best fits the winning artwork of round 1.1 by @mfestra.

#ArtSoundtrack is supported by AIRPLAY via @the-jukebox and PIXEL via @pixel

Explanation of the contest

The reason we started this contest, is because we thought it would be awesome to have a contest where music and visual arts come together. Wouldn't it be great to have a soundtrack to go with a painting, drawing or photo and vice versa? Each episode will have two rounds. Round one for visual artists, round two for musicians (of all genres).

  • In round 1, visual artists can submit their piece of art (painting, drawing, photo). Style doesn't matter.
  • In round 2 (current round), musicians, bands, DJs or other musical artists can submit their track that fits the winning art of round 1 well.

Round 1 (previous round)

  • Submit your visual art before November 22nd;
  • Starting November 22nd the Whaleshares community will have 24 hours to vote for their favourite painting, drawing or photo.

Round 2 (current round)

  • Check the winner of round 1 in the announcement post for round2;
  • Submit your track/song that matches the visual art of round 1 between 24 November and 1 December;
  • On December 2nd, the Whaleshares community will have 24 hours to vote for the track that best fits the visual art selected in round 1.


  • Create a post and use the tag #ArtSoundtrack;
  • Comment with a link to your submission and Bitshares address;
  • Use a link to this contest in your submission post;
  • Submit before December 1st (round 2)
  • Explain in your post why your track matches the winning artwork by @mfestra
  • Reward this post so the contest and artists are shared around :-) (optional)

About the Whaletokens

Pixel is a token that is looking for helping artists of many disciplines to develop professionally and while they do, to have an economical support and social recognition/support in the platform. It is a token that can be earned but not traded.
Supporting musicians in general by giving their music some airplay online so it reaches people and get's artists the recognition they deserve for the music, more than their marketing skills

If you want to contribute to the rewards pool in any way (rewarding/tokens you name it), contact Roel on Discord via Roel#4485 or comment below :-)


When in round one, the painting below won Sgt. Peppter's Lonely Hearts Club Band would be a matching track ;-) Of course, this is an obvious example but that's just to make the idea of this contest more clear.

Without further ado we'd like to announce season 1, episode 1, round 2 :-) Looking forward to listening to all your masterpieces, whether it's Rock, Indie, Singer-Songwriter, Electronic, Punk, Metal or anything else. The entire Whaleshares community will be able to vote for the best art on December 2nd so stay tuned if you're not an artist, but an admirer.
