Artizen is a community fund for human creativity. Anyone who submits a project to Artizen enters into the following agreement.


By submitting a project to Artizen you enter into this agreement and must acknowledge and agree to the following:

  • Applicant certifies that all materials related to their project submission are accurate and honestly reflect the nature of their work.

  • To the best of the applicant's knowledge, their project submission is eligible for the Artizen Prize and meets all review criteria, rules and conditions, and other guidelines published by Artizen.

  • Applicant will not vote for their own project submissions nor buy Artifacts from their own projects in order to win the Artizen Prize, secure match funding, or receive any other material reward. Any votes cast or Artifacts purchased by applicant for the purpose of supporting their own project will not count toward the final tally.

If an applicant is unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may have their project submission removed from consideration or, in extreme cases, may have their account terminated. If an applicant does not win the Artizen Prize, they are freed from any other obligations found in this agreement.

Prize Winners

In order to receive the award money as well as any non-monetary creator benefits such as mentorship and in-kind support (collectively "awards"), the winner must acknowledge and agree to the following:

  • Awards may only be used to develop, produce, create, market, release, or otherwise support the winner's project.

  • Winner must exhibit a high standard of effort, honest communication, and dedication to develop, complete, and release their project.

  • Winner must provide Artizen with a valid, Ethereum-compatible wallet address capable of receiving ETH as well as additional information to verify their identity to comply with know-your-customer and anti-money laundering regulations such as a copy of their passport or another form of valid ID.

  • Any costs associated with transferring money to the winner will be deducted from the total of the award money.

  • Once winners complete their project, they must submit a Prize Report detailing how the award money and creator benefits were used.

  • If the winner is unable to complete their project within 12 months, they must submit a Prize Report detailing the current status of their project.

  • Payouts for award money will be issued as soon as possible but can take up to 48 hours to be processed.

  • Credits for the winner's project must prominently feature the text "Supported by the Artizen Prize for Human Creativity," and include the Artizen Logo in accordance with our brand guidelines.

If a winner is unable to complete, release, or further their project as promised, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. A winner in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations if:

  • they share an update with the Artizen community that explains what work has been done, how awards were used, and what prevents them from furthering the project as planned; and

  • they work diligently to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that’s shared with our community.

If a winner is unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they will not be required to return any portion of the money or other benefits. However, they may have their account terminated and be prevented from participating in future awards.
