Our next creator competition starts today in Horizon Worlds! The competition will run over the next weeks and close on April 26 at 11:59 PM PT. Check out the details below, including info on the number of winners, special awards, and prizing structure (TL;DR - a total of up to $100,000* is up for grabs!).
In celebration of the changing of the season, when we can all emerge after the long winter, our theme for this next competition will be spring. To ensure we are inclusive of our diverse types of creators, submissions can be full world experiences or games that bring people together and encourage connectedness. Some initial ideas to jumpstart your creativity… the changing of the season, growth, rebirth and transitions, emerging from winter to experience longer days and more sunshine, etc.
The competition will run for six (6) weeks, starting today, March 15 and ending on April 26. The rules around entering the competition solo or as a team remain the same (aka either works as long as you only submit one world or game yourself!), so jump in and get building!
Ready to go? Check out the Creators Competition Hub located in Horizon Worlds. This will be the central space for you to learn more about the competition, meet other participants in the competition, and connect with collaborators.
