Here’s a chance to turn your artwork into a Viber Lens! Rakuten Viber is now accepting entries to LENS Create, a virtual search for the next favorite Viber Lens design.
Viber Lenses add the magic of augmented reality (AR) to its in-app camera, allowing users to make their chats more expressive, fun and creative. Viber Lenses include AR filters featuring funny faces, animal masks, Viber characters, and seasonal lenses. Rakuten Viber partners such as the World Health Organization, FC Barcelona, and local partner Globe have also created their own Viber Lenses.
To join LENS Create and get the chance to have your lens design used by millions of Viber users, all you have to do is submit your artwork to the official Lens Create Community and get as many likes as possible. The most liked entries have a higher chance of winning, but muralist, illustrator and Viber Lens designer, Jappy Agoncillo, and the Rakuten Viber Creative team will declare the final winning designs.
Rakuten Viber will be giving out up to Php 100,000 worth of prizes. They will also get tools, resources, and special offers from design and online education platforms to help the winners develop their craft and improve their passion for the arts. Selected designs will be turned into Viber Lenses and will be pinned as featured Lenses for up to two weeks.
“Viber has always created ways for our users to express themselves—from making our app as safe and secure as possible to offering features like Viber Lens,” says Chris Aguilar, the Marketing Lead at Viber Philippines. “We hope through the LENS Create contest Viber is giving local artists and designers a platform to express their creativity and more opportunities to share their works with millions of our users across the world. We are happy to have partnered with local artists like Jappy Agoncillo, Anina Rubio, and Leeroy New for exciting new Viber Lenses for our customers.”
Submit your entries starting November 5. The first batch of winners will be announced on November 15 and these user-created designs will be available as Viber Lenses on November 29.
