MORE THAN
JUST A CONTEST

The Create The Future 2050 contest aims to take a step forward to the future and help artists from all over the world transform their works into modern high-tech trends.

The future has been chosen as the main theme for a reason: our world was first imagined by sci-fi writers and visionaries, and only then scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs brought those images to life.

The works of the winners and prize-winners will be exhibited in the leading museums of the country, at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), as well as presented at the charity auction held jointly with the Circle of Kindness charity foundation.

WHAT WILL

BE LIKE?

The answer lies in the pictures of each participant. And in yours as well.

Use the opportunity to create a picture of the future, show it to the world and take a trip to 2050.

FUTURE
WORLD 2050 COLLECTION

The participants can register on the JOYS.space NFT marketplace and submit up to 5 pictorial works showing their ideas of the future.

Each drawing will be automatically converted into NFT and placed on the platform.

After summing up the results of the contest, it is possible to purchase the NFTs on the marketplace for non-cash payments, including the Fast Payment System.

NFT FORMAT

All art objects of the Create The Future 2050 contest will be converted into NFTs and placed on Joys, the first Russian marketplace for digital object sales transactions.

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are a new technology for fixing the ownership of a digital object that has significantly changed the international art market. NFT allows authors of digitally created and hosted works to secure their ownership in a way previously impossible.

NFT has made digital art collecting possible and has created a unique new market growing rapidly these days.
