VK Masks Contest


More and more people are using VK Stories each day, which means soon we’ll add a new tool to VK Stories – Masks! By using masks, your stories will become even more interesting and unique.

VK is an open platform from which third-party developers can launch products for a huge audience. We are continuing to move forward by providing artists the possibility of creating masks for millions of users.

Today VK has launched a virtual mask creation contest open for all illustrators, animators and 3D artists.

Participants must create virtual masks capable of being imposed on a user’s face in real time. Masks can be any theme, level of complexity, 2D, 3D, animated or static. Tools for creating masks are described in this manual.

The evaluation criteria
  • Originality and relevance
  • Illustration and animation quality
  • Amount and efficiency of applied programs — Facemodel, Patch, Patch Fullscreen, ColorFilter, Model3D
  • 1st place — MacBook Pro 13” with Touch Bar, 2.9 GHz, 256GB 
  • 2nd – 5th place — iPhone 7 Plus 256GB
