Preliminary Art Contest Winners

Dear Eggdopters and art contest participants, there’s no denying that the art contest was an interesting experience. We’ve had a good time going over all the entries, and with the final announcement of winners less than 3 days away, we wrote this post to inform you of important developments and what to expect.

First, we would like to congratulate the preliminary winners 🥳. You’re probably thinking “what the heck are preliminary winners?” Well, to explain, we need to talk about plagiarism.

Plagiarism and the Disqualified Lovelies (preliminary losers)

In deciding the winners of the art contest, we ran into a knot of a problem—plagiarism. Because the crypto space, and by extension NFTs, are unregulated, there is rampant abuse of Intellectual Property rights.

As a believer in the values of intellectual property ownership and the fair rights they confer on the artist, we had to disqualify from the contest plagiarists (who intentionally flouted plagiarism rules) and some worthy contenders (who accidentally ignored copyright, or thought it was fine to ignore).

While we like the work of the worthy contenders, we are legally prevented from choosing them because we’re paying for this as an Association, and so we cannot legally buy copyright protected assets not labeled for reuse of commercial activity.

You can read this post for more information on our reasoning.

Thus, the preliminary winners consists of all the artworks that were not disqualified because of plagiarism.
