Yoshi has sponsored a competition! Let’s see what you got! Send us your best “Yoshi” themed artwork and attach a music track in any genre! Be creative! The theme is “WAXFAM Celebration.”

We’d like to include families in determining winners, so please keep everything safe for work and family-friendly. That said, lay down some sick beats or sing your heart out! All entrants are welcome as long as they have a wax collection. There is no cost to enter. Please limit yourself to one official entry per person. If you do a collab with somebody, do two!

How to Enter

  1. Mint an NFT with your artwork in the “img” field and your track in the “audio” field according to the “Music NFT” template here ((https://waxworks.io/waxworks-supported-schemas/). Additional information can be included in the backimg field. The video field may also be used but will not be part of the consideration in this contest.
  2. Send 1 of those NFTs this unique wallet: wwxyoshidrop (This NFT will become the property of WAXWORKS/Yoshi so it can remain in a special gallery after the contest.) You are free to mint and sell any other copies of the NFT with no restrictions.
  3. Yoshi and WAXWORKS will select 10 juried contestants from the entry pool, and we will vote via discord. In order, the 5 entries with the highest vote counts will be selected for the top prizes.  The WAXWORKS Spirit winner can be selected regardless of whether they are included in the juried list!


  1. You must have full rights to the art and music (but collabs are great!)
  2. Original compositions only, no bought tracks
  3. Must use the official WAXWORKS template (https://waxworks.io/waxworks-supported-schemas/)
  4. Must provide an NFT mint #1 with an mp3 and an image to enter following the supported template above. #1 is so that we only get new stuff!
  5. You retain the rights to your art and music and authorize WAXWORKS to display them for the purposes of the contest or to link to your sales pages.
  6. NFTs entered in the contest will not be returned and may be used for display after the contest ends. As the sponsor of the contest, these will be sent to Yoshi when/if the gallery page is retired.
  7. If you choose to collab ARTIST X MUSICIAN you can each submit a separate entry as long as it’s a different track and a different cover image! We’d love to meet some new artists! Remember, there can be 2 grand prize winners!
  8. In the event that we get far more than 10 entries, we may split the contest into two brackets to let the community vote on more entries.

Want to participate but think you’re not a music maker? Do a collab with somebody new to WAX! Let’s build this music scene out! There can be two winners, so if you work as a team, you could both be selected!
