A new Playboy and Sevens Foundation NFT project will support underrepresented artists. Broken down into themes, submissions should focus on gender, speech, sexuality, and other core Playboy editorial themes. The idea is to help marginalised digital creatives become more visible.
The project will begin with ‘The Art of Gender and Sexuality’, the first instalment of the series, celebrating diverse identities. Artists taking part will have the chance to mint and sell their NFT work through a new grant, established by Sevens. Submissions are open until 1st October 2021. In total, 50 candidates will be chosen for the final cut. All will feature in a Playboy x Sevens activation exhibition at the NFT NYC conference in November — the world’s leading non-fungible token event.

It’s important to note that Playboy and Sevens Foundation make perfect bed partners for this project. Sevens is a non-profit dedicated to elevating artists through exhibitions and grants. Meanwhile, Playboy was the first erotic magazine to put a trans model on its cover. It has long advocated for diversity, sexuality, and personal freedoms.
The magazine has also explored the NFT space before, including the Nifty Pride project, and more recently its Miami Beach Collection. Artists should think outside their comfort zone when it comes to creating work. Which means the more individual the piece is the more chance it stands of making the final 50, all of who get to keep any profits generated from their work.
