“Kaleidoverse” comes from “kaleidoscope” and “metaverse”, indicating a glimpse of the huge universe from a small space. With a kaleidoscope in hand, some people see the abyss in the sky, while others see nothing in everything. We encourage creators to find their own worlds and to create their own wonderful universe.​
Since its launch, the competition has received a great number of outstanding creators from all over the world. The creators bravely and creatively expressed their own vision of “Kaleidoverse” in their designs. Hundreds of wonderful works have been collected in each track, including future metaverse fashion items, metaverse products with multiple values and innovations, and also delicate space design, exploring the boundaries of space design in the metaverse. We believe that these works represent the expectations of many creators for the future metaverse, and we believe that these works can realize their value and make a contribution to the metaverse. We’d like to help make them visible to more people, giving outstanding creators a chance to make their mark in the metaverse and help add more innovation to the industry.​

Why sponsor this competition?

1. Increase DCL’s exposure and popularity in the design community.
We have collaborated with many art & design communities, media, software, and institutions, which bring excellent entries and a lot of exposure as well. Here we list part of the partners and their media coverage:
If DCL becomes one of the sponsors of this competition, this competition will bring a large number of new users and new content creators to DCL, which would definitely make our DCL’s community more popular and active.

2. Increase DCL’s visibility among the student community (Gen Z) and become their first choice to enter the metaverse.
The competition has partnered with many prestigious art school student associations, including RCA, GSA, UAL, MAU, Pratt, LSE, etc. These schools will be promoting the contest on their social media accounts. If DCL sponsors these activities, it will become known among the art student group.

3. The excellent works in the competition will be exhibited or achieved in DCL on a priority basis. Quality content will help DCL attract more users and facilitate its dissemination.
Any quality metaverse works produced in the competition will have priority to be exhibited or achieved in DCL. For example, excellent clothing works will be made into wearable devices, and excellent space designs will be achieved in the land of DCL.

4. The DCL community will receive some Kaleidoverse Memorial Badge for the competition and will be available at Opensea. (See badge on the contest website below)

The total cost for the contest is around $50,000. The other sponsors we work with provide us with $30,000, and we hope DCL could provide us with $20,000. The sponsorship money provided by DCL will be used for the prize money for the winners and for the award ceremony and exhibition.

I find two aspects of this proposal valuable for the community. On the one hand, you are bringing together different investors, turning the project into a point of union between different businesses. At the same time creating value by bringing a large number of new users and new content creators to DCL.

If it happens, it can be a great contribution to form new and meaningful relationships within DCL.
