- First Prize(1 winner):2000 $BEAN

Official dance performance opportunity: among all winning dance videos, SecondLive team will select proper works for official dance performance. The team will contact corresponding VDance Creators via discord. Works using self-searched resources will have more chances of being selected.
Attention: the same work cannot be submitted simultaneously to different Vdance campaigns.
Creator’s Final score = work quantity 50% + work quality score 50%;
Work quantity: refers to all submitted works of the participant;
Work quality score: refers to the sum of every work quality score. Among those, each work quality will be scored separately;
SecondLive team will evaluate the video quality from three perspectives: video quality (resolution & length), resource quality (resource integrity, movement fluency and music adaptation), avatar quality (face and dressing up);
There are 3 levels of video quality: poor-1 point, good-2 points and excellent-3 points; 1 point will be a bonus for using the resources obtained by oneself; For example, if a participant creates five dance videos in the campaign, then his/her final score will be counted as follows:
- Work quantity = 5;
- Work quality score of each video: 1, 2, 2, 3, 3
- So, final score = 5 *50% + (1+2+2+3+3) *50% = 8
Participants should make videos with the “New Year’s Scene” in the latest client of Lasagna, and make your avatars dress up in New Year’s theme.
There is no limit to the MMD resources, no matter that they are from SecondLive Marketplace or other channels, or they are VDance Creators’ origin resources. All of them could be used to make a dance video. But the video with the resources searched by creators themselves from other channels will have more chances for official performance. Here are the tutorials for you: MMD Resources Search Tutorial and Lasagna Tutorial.
Video standard: the dance video shall contain the data of avatar, motion, music, camera; video resolution ≥ 720p; length ≥ 1 min; smooth movements; and the music shall match with the movements; only those works which meet the video standard can win the “participation award’;
Work submission: participants shall post the video on Twitter (If the video exceeds the twitter video limit, participants could first upload the video on YouTube, then forward it to Twitter), and submit the tweet link under this post.
Winning work evaluation: SecondLive team will evaluate if the submitted videos meet the standards or not, and will manually count the video amount;
Official dance performance details: SecondLive team will select and polish dance videos for the performance; for those selected works, the team will contact their creators via Discord to inform them to provide the MMD resources concerned and the clothes worn.
