How to get your project curated for our Official Selection
Each season, our community of Artifact holders votes on project submissions. Projects that garner the most votes by the end of the review period are curated for that season's Official Selection and go on to compete for match funding and the Artizen Prize. This article aims to guide you through the best practices for ensuring your project gets curated for our Official Selection each season.
Best practices for submissions
Make Your Artifact Visually Stunning
Your Artifact should visually capture the essence of your project and stand on its own as unique work of art.
JPG or GIF
Square 1:1 aspect ratio and NO text or graphic overlays.
GIFs perform better than still images
Optional but significantly boost your success.
45 seconds or less, square 1:1 aspect ratio, .mp4 file type, NO text or graphic overlays, and less than 100MB.
Use Simple Language
A short, evocative title works best.
Write a logline using language a 3rd grader could understand.
Avoid jargon or overly technical language. Your project should be universally understandable.
Include a Pitch Deck
Optional but highly recommended.
Read our Pitch Deck Guidelines
How to promote your project
Only Artifact holders are allowed to vote for project submissions. So it is important that you know how to politely promote your project submission to the people who will ultimately decide whether or not to curate your project.
