THE CALL

FABERIUM is calling all digital artists, 3D modellers and virtual world creators to submit original 3D digital art to be secured on the blockchain! For this last round of submissions for the month of February, we are accepting submissions until the 1st of March. The themes for this round are CRAFTSMANSHIP, AUTHENTICITY and EXCLUSIVITY.

FABERIUM’s goal is to discover unique 3D digital art that takes inspiration from existing artisanal objects. The digital artwork can be 3D models/digital replicas with a creative spin, interactive 3D artwork and/or procedurally generated 3D content. 'Artisanal' can be interpreted broadly but the values that define this word for us are unparalleled craftsmanship, authenticity and unwavering commitment to a craft that underlines exclusivity. Work that fits any and all artisan categories are accepted including, and not limited to, fashion, sculpture, jewelry, wood carving, textiles, knot tying, glass blowing, you name it!

We welcome digital artists who are ready to challenge themselves to experiment wildly to redefine the hybrid space that bridges the digital with the physical.

WHY SHOULD YOU SUBMIT WORK?

 

FABERIUM will continue selecting submissions on a rolling basis but selections from this round will all be registered on a blockchain and be part of an exclusive BEYOND X.Y.Z FABERIUM x VFILES Showcase on March 31st

Additionally, by submitting work in this round, all selected artists will become a part of the FABERIUM network, receive an exclusive FABERIUM Pioneers Badge and global exposure on VFILES social media (with over 500,000 followers on Instagram alone). Select entries will also have the option to continue working with FABERIUM on future projects including tokenizing their artwork as non-fungible tokens (NFT) backed by a smart contract. NFT details to be confirmed at a later date after a discussion with all involved parties about their specific needs.

WHO CAN APPLY?

Skilled solo 3D digital artists from anywhere in the world can apply. Minors will need parental authorization.

Team applications and multiple entries are accepted. Teams showing interdisciplinary collaboration between a digital artist and an artisan are highly encouraged. We encourage digital artists to collaborate with artisans to capture the true CRAFTSMANSHIP, AUTHENTICITY and EXCLUSIVITY of their work and produce unique 3D digital art.

SELECTION CRITERIA

  • AESTHETIC ORIGINALITY

  • ALIGNMENT WITH THE THEMES OF CRAFTSMANSHIP, AUTHENTICITY, and EXCLUSIVITY

  • CREATIVE EXPLORATION OF THE DIGITAL LANDSCAPE GOING BEYOND SIMPLY BEING A DIGITAL COPY

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Any work that fits the theme of this call regardless of when it was created or whether it has been previously made public, can be submitted for consideration.

To submit your work, please complete the application form HERE before March 1st, 11:59pm EST, and include a URL link to a high resolution video clip of your artwork rendered at 24-30fps and up to 60 seconds long (.mp4 / .mov / .avi).
