Thank you for submitting this community event grant proposal! Unfortunately it has not passed due to the following reasons: - The amount requested (32k USD) is incongruent to the number of estimated OG holders that would benefit from this experience (50) which breaksdown to $640 per head. Ideally the bulk of these overhead costs would be covered by 3rd party hackathon partners or sponsors. - 50 holders in attendance (with an expect attendance of 120) is less than the required 50% or greater as specified in the community events guidelines. We suggest surveying the local UK/EU community that would benefit from this event and resubmit with concrete data on estimated attendance and interest in the activities planned. We would love to see you implement the above feedback and resubmit!

Doodlethon offers Doodles holders and their +1s the opportunity to connect, share ideas, and bring their creative dreams to life. There will be a day filled with friends, drinks, collaboration and an inspiring atmosphere at the event.

This event will bring expert speakers and helpers, and provide an opportunity for individual networking and collaboration between the Doodles community and other Web3 brands. As part of this effort, we are currently in discussions with potential partners to enhance the event experience and promote cross-community networking.

What are you hoping to accomplish through this event? This year’s Doodlethon aims to accomplish the following objectives:

Promote the Doodles community in London and establish its presence. Push the limits of the Doodles space in the most creative ways, fostering innovation in areas such as fashion, games, apps, movies, comics, and more. Develop deeper relationships within the Doodles community that extend beyond the usual web3 conferences. Develop engaging, viral content during the party and throughout the weekend to make a lasting impression on Web3. In partnership with other prominent communities, use the event as a proof of concept for upcoming large-scale events and meet-ups for Doodle holders. In order to improve the quality of these types of events and experiences, promote collaboration between members of the community and other Web3 creators. Ensure that Doodles holders continue to enjoy a thriving and engaged community

We will have a website with all the track , judges , challenges and will reach out to the Doodles community in the UK and globally , We will have banners and badges for speakers , judges, mentors and that will boost viral marketing. We also plan to reach out to creator agencies, influencers to use the amazing venue and produce amazing videos during the day and after the hackathon.
