A new platform, a new contest :-) #ArtSoundtrack!

This 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 and create amazing tracks, you can enter. More info in the sections below.

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? 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, musicians, bands, DJs or other musical artists can submit their track that fits the art of round 1 well.

Round 1

  • Submit your visual art before September 12th
  • Starting September 12th the Whaleshares community will have 24 hours to vote for their favourite painting, drawing or photo.

Round 2 (starts September 13th)

  • Submit your track/song before September 21st
  • Starting September 21st the Whaleshares community will have 24 hours to vote for the track that best fits the visual art selected in round 1.


  • Use #ArtSoundtrack as tag
  • Comment with a link to your submission
  • Use a link to this contest in your submission post
  • Submit before September 12th (round 1) or September 21st (round 2)
  • Reward this post so the contest and artists are shared around :-)


Okay, but what can I win?

First prize round 1:

  • 250 $INDIE
  • 250 AIRPLAY
  • 250 Pixel
  • A soundtrack to go with your piece of art

First prize round 2:

  • 250 $INDIE
  • 250 AIRPLAY
  • 250 Pixel
  • A painting/drawing (digitally) to go with your track

$INDIE is the brand-agnostic reward token of The Indie Alliance - a collective of global Arts projects and blockchain awards brands. Sign up to Bitshares to be able to receive them.

@seveaux has created the AIRPLAY token and has kindly offered it for us to use to reward deserving independent artists.
The token will be able to summon the-jukebox whale to come and visit the post of your choice.

This feature will be live at some point in September but the exciting thing is you can also trade your $INDIE for AIRPLAY on Bitshares.

@pixel is The WhaleToken of the Artists and Photographers

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.

The entire Whaleshares community will be able to vote for the best art on September 12th so stay tuned if you're not an artist, but an admirer.
