• Algorand Make Art-Sports Power Play

Illustrated World Series (IWS) are pleased to announce a high-profile tournament partnership with cryptocurrency company Algorand: The world's first open source, permissionless pure proof-of-stake blockchain protocol designed for the future of finance. 

Taking a collaborative approach we’ll jointly champion the growth of competitive creativity and the rise of Art-Sports as a new and highly competitive eSports vertical, joining forces to support and develop the next generation of creative sports stars. Working with Algorand we’ll move into the NFT space and offer our growing fanbase an opportunity to secure and own their slice of Art-Sports history.

IWS has a verifiable back catalogue and proven track record with heritage and cultural significance built into its collection. Credibility comes through a protected archive of highly collectible, professionally ranked tournament entries reflecting various news headlines dating back to 2016. IWS are the only creative eSports tournament in the world dedicated to building a professional circuit for talented illustrators and artists to grow their profiles and build exciting sporting careers beyond their normal practice. 

The IWS X Algorand partnership will see the UK Illustration Championships 2021 use the most comprehensive suite of production technology to-date as the entire tournament is live-streamed on Twitch Dec 29 - 31. This powerful partnership looks set to explore further integration into 2022 as we continue to learn about Algorand blockchain and how it might benefit IWS ticketing, league table and rankings management frameworks, play as you earn on-game challenges, NFT collabs and more. Did we mention they're carbon neutral too?
