Maykoko Fest Emote Design Competition

22 May 2023

Heroes of Arkesia,

We’re excited to announce a new, special addition to Maykoko Fest— starting today, we’re launching an emote design competition for the community to create in-game Mokoko-themed emotes. The prize? Your art being uploaded into Lost Ark as an emote for the community to use!

Submission collection for the Mokoko emote contest will run from May 22 to June 12. After the submission deadline ends on June 12, our team will spend a few days selecting 10 finalists. Once the finalists are selected, the community can vote on their favorites by using reactions in Discord from June 16 - 23, and the top 5 will be selected as winners and added into the game.

You can enter your submissions to the emote contest through the official Lost Ark Discord by creating a post in the "Mokoko Emote Contest" section with the image of your artwork attached (JPG or PNG under 25mb). Ideal emote size is 500x500 at 300 DPI. Submission emotes need to be static images with transparent backgrounds unless there are intentional design decisions requiring a background color. When preparing the winning emotes to be put in-game, some details may be removed or adjusted to better fit the game. Find the full contest rules here.

We’re excited to see what the community submits! Don’t forget to enter your emote submissions before the June 12 deadline, and check back on June 16 to vote on your favorite finalists. In the meantime, celebrate Maykoko Fest by completing weekly events and earning rewards. When Lost Ark players reach certain milestones, all will be rewarded. Check the calendar to learn what you need to accomplish each week.
