Solana and Pintu launch NFT competition in Indonesia, attract international audience


Solana (SOL/USD) Indonesia and Pintu have announced an NFT competition called the Indonesia Art Project, which will bring together Indonesian creators and visual artists to celebrate the lively, diverse local art scene, Invezz learned from a press release.

Creators of all skill levels accepted

Over one month, visual artists and art enthusiasts of all skill levels can compete for the attention of local and international creators, judges, and art collectors. A prize pool of over $70,000 awaits the lucky winners. Among the local and global partners of the event are Magic Eden, Metaplex, USS FEED, Serum, Project SEED, Eizper Chain, Coinvestasi, and more.

NFTs on Solana appeal to a global audience

NFTs are in their heyday, having created an inflection point for people who want to gain access to an audience and monetise their work. Indonesia Art Project is an opportunity for local artists to showcase their NFTs on Solana, the fastest and most scalable blockchain attracting a global audience.

Solana’s low fees provide an additional, not insignificant opportunity for creators and artists to make NFTs as affordably as possible.

Matthew Beck, partner at Solana Ventures, said:

Blockchain knows no geographic bounds, and has shown that, no matter where artists are based, there’s a global community behind them.  We’re excited to support this collaboration, and introduce new people to the power of NFTs and digital art.

Timothius Martin, Chief Marketing Officer at Pintu, added:

Visual arts have always been a big part of Indonesian culture. We have many talented artists whose work may not get the exposure and appreciation that it deserves. Through blockchain technology, we believe artists can express their works to a global audience in the form of digital arts (NFTs) and get rewarded in crypto assets. Pintu and the Solana network share this same vision to support artists in Indonesia.
