We’re excited to kick off the Spark AR Cyberware Challenge, one of our largest cash prize competitions of the year! Starting today, we’re inviting all eligible creators to make AR effects inspired by the Cyberpunk 2077 video game, and to compete for the chance to win more than $700,000 USD in cash prizes — including daily cash prizes of $1,000 USD and a grand prize of $40,000 USD.

How to participate

Sign up
Go to Spark AR Hub, click on the Competitions tab and select Join. Set your contact preferences, review the contest official rules and confirm your approval.



Get the assets
Starting on Sept 14th, you’ll find an initial set of five Cyberpunk 2077 assets available to download from the AR Library in Spark AR Studio. We’ll be releasing a second set of 5 assets on Sept 22nd, and a third and final set on Oct 5th.



Make your effects
Create as many Cyberpunk 2077-inspired effects as you want, but each effect must contain at least one of the provided assets. And if you’re interested in some extra creative coaching, we’ll be hosting Cyberpunk-themed virtual workshops to teach you how to create standout competition effects. Sign up now!



Publish to compete
When you’re ready to submit your effect to the competition, follow the normal publishing steps in Spark AR Hub, but now make sure you enable the Competitions toggle.



Earn points to win
Your effects will accumulate points based on the opens and shares they receive each day. The sooner you submit your effects, the more points you can potentially earn. You can learn more about competition scoring, prizes and more in our contest documentation.

You can keep track of how you’re ranking, and see the overall competition leaderboard, by clicking on the Competitions tab within Spark AR Hub. And if you have any questions about the Cyberware Challenge, or you just want to share your effects with the community, please visit the Spark AR Facebook Group.
