The GBA will be hosting a digital (online) Art Show during Government Blockchain Week, Sept 27- Oct 2, 2021

‘What I Hope to See Blockchain Achieve in My Lifetime’

Do you have ideas of flying delivery robots, smart sneakers, programmable flowers, or trips into space? Why not express them in an artistic way and submit your image?

This show is not just for conventional artists. Blockchain innovators have ideas that need to be expressed beyond words. Draw, paint, AI-generate, sodder, or build your ideas for all to see. A digital image of your work will be viewed by hundreds of leaders from around the world, and all attendees to Government Blockchain Week will be able to vote on the winners. Cash prizes for Best In Show, Second Place, and Third Place will be awarded from the stage of the US Capitol on Friday, October 1, 2021.

Submissions will be judged on 5 categories:

1) Creativity/Originality. How insightful and innovative is this idea?
2) Practicality. Could this idea work? Is it even remotely possible?
3) Helpful/ Humanity. Does this idea help anyone? Who? How?
4) Involvement. Is the artist involved in the deployment of this project? How? To what extent?
5) Visual appeal. How pleasing is the image to behold?

Please describe in the entry form how your art answers numbers 3 and 4.

This art show has a dual purpose. We hope to utilize a blockchain voting app, built by the GBA Voting Working Group, to allow all participants of Government Blockchain Week to judge the show. Winners will be chosen from each of the categories, and each of the 5 winners will receive recognition and an award from the stage on October 1 at the US Capitol. We are in process of creating NFTs out of selected pieces that will be for sale at this event. Artists will receive 75 percent of any NFT sales of their work. You do not want to miss out! The Government Blockchain Week will be attended by hundreds of blockchain innovators and government policymakers who will vote on your work. All artwork in this show will be printed into a brochure with the artist’s name, contact information, and a paragraph about their piece. Additionally, the entire show will be posted digitally for our members around the globe to see.

The call for entries is open now and we will be taking submissions until August 15, 2021. Artists will be contacted by end of August whether or not they have made the show.

Contestants do not need to be GBA Members to submit, nor do they need to be present to win. This contest is open to anyone.

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

-Pablo Picasso
