The program revolved around finding the most innovative NFT projects with interesting new use cases. Beyond that, the partners simply intended to use it to further push the adoption of blockchain technology, by showing some interesting things that can be done with NFTs.
The projects were judged by experts from a variety of fields, including blockchain, technology, gaming, entertainment, and alike.
The main judges included the former Chairman and CEO of Sony, Nobuyuki Idei, Microsoft’s Sherry List, Ubisoft’s Nicolas Pouard, Google’s Etsuji Nakai, a known artist/musician Justin Blau, Bandai Namco Entertainment’s Nao Udagawa, and the Pokemon series’ game designer Shigeki Morimoto,
While they created the main judging panel, there was also the preliminary judging panel which consisted of 24 leaders from the blockchain industry.
The winners of the 2020 NFT Awards program
Enjin and DEA announced the winners of the program yesterday, during a live stream. The two revealed that there were more than 266 nominees, in total.
The main award went to Micah Johnson’s project known as “sä-v(ə-)rən-tē”. This NFT is a time-sensitive photographic artwork that features two young boys, and aims to support their future.
The project is quite unique, with a layer change that takes place on the boys’ birthdays every year, revealing their BTC wallet and their career goals, thus allowing users to contribute and help them, should they so desire.
