#MyUplandCity Writing Contest and Giveaway - $1,500 in ETH Prize Pool!

By igort | Publish0x Contests | 16 Jun 2021

It's been over 2 months since our last contest has concluded, and it's finally time for a new one!

This is a second Upland themed contest, the first one being #UplandPublish0x. If you don’t know already, Upland is an NFT metaverse that is mapped to the real world and is quickly becoming the largest and most dynamic blockchain-based economy in existence.

On to the good stuff..

#MyUplandCity Writing Contest and Giveaway - $1,500 in ETH Prize Pool!



1. What is the Topic You Can Write About in the #MyUplandCity Writing Contest?

The real-world aspect is central to Upland: currently, Upland is live in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Oakland, Fresno, and Bakersfield, and soon Cleveland. You can buy, sell, and trade properties in each of those cities that represent real-life locations.

So, we wanted to ask you a simple question: Why should Upland open in your city?

Your post should touch on your city’s iconic landmarks, its cultural events, and places that are personally special to you, whether those be parks, restaurants, streets, and more. Give us a strong, imaginative case for why you feel like your city should be opened in the Upland metaverse next and you’ll be able to draw winnings from a $1,500 in ETH prize pool! No city is too big or too small, and we want to hear about cities from all over the world.

And for bonus points, add a selfie to your post taken next to a real life location in your city that you’ll be racing to purchase once your city is live in Upland.


  • If you live in a small town, or in a "boring" city, you can still participate in the contest. Entries won't be judged based on the location you are in, but rather on the content, the way you present your city / town, and the effort put into the post.
  • It is acceptable to write about a city that is not yours, too!
