The lucky winners of the TI5 Golden Ticket contest have been selected. Two animated short films, a cosplay build walk-through and a board game were the winning submissions.
Four winners were selected out of 88 submissions – three by judges and one by community vote. The winners will receive TI5 tickets and will have their flights covered.
TI5 Golden Ticket contest
TI5 Golden Ticket contest is a contest created to give community content creators the opportunity to attend The International 5.
One year ago, we gave away our spare ticket to Valve’s The International Dota 2 event to one lucky content creator, and this year we are looking to expand and give away a FULL FREE RIDE to TI5 for THREE deserving community members. We hope to not only provide the much sought after ticket, but also full airfare, and hotel stay to three lucky people that could have not afforded to go any other way.
Besides giving fans who would otherwise not be able to afford to attend TI5 the chance to go, the TI5 Golden Ticket contest was also designed to “help facilitate growth and content of the Dota 2 community”. The hope was that artists and content creators would gain attention and recognition, allowing them the chance to grow professionally within the scene.
TI5 Golden Ticket winners
There were a total of 88 entries in the TI5 Golden Ticket contest. Judges picked three ticket winners, and the community picked the last one. Winning entries were not ranked in any succession of quality. Each winner will receive a TI5 ticket and return-trip plane tickets. The remaining funds will be divided evenly between the winners to be applied towards lodging or donated to a charity like Child’s Play.
