IFS Artwork Competition (April – June 2021)

Hello Agents! We have another round of the IFS Artwork Media competition for you starting now! Together, with Niantic, we are excited to announce the second submission round for the 2021. IngressFS Artwork Competition is now openOnce again, we are going with a theme you guys all know i love, so lets get into it!

IngressFS are events, run by agents, that bring agents together and have an opportunity to create bonds between the two factions through common interests and aspirations.

To continue the year with sentiments of growth & rejuvenation, we are looking for artwork that delivers positive messages through existing Shaper Glyphs. If there are Glyphs that you resonate and/or share a sentimental connection with, please share it with the Ingress Community as a work of art and enter this global competition.

If you would like to participate, please take into account that your submission must be an original work of your own. Therefore, no work other than Ingress materials and the artist’s original creation will be considered for the competition (this includes unedited non-copyright stock images in addition to copyrighted images). Also, your work must comply with the Niantic Player Guidelines (e.g. nothing racist/sexist/obscene). This is your opportunity to showcase your artistic creativity; screenshots of only Glyphs or Glyph Field Art will not be accepted.

As a reminder, what will be the criteria to select the best IngressFS submissions? The best submissions will:

  • showcase originality
  • have a strong aesthetic appeal
  • celebrate the cross-faction Ingress community
  • represent the desire to explore new places
  • inspire Ingress agents to be physically active
  • communicate a feeling of mystery, wonder, or surprise
  • have a thematic association with the month or season

Below are just some examples of an ideal artwork submission and we hope it will provide some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!


Winners will be chosen by a panel of Niantic and IFS-UN members. The winners will have their artwork featured at an upcoming First Saturday, including in-game media elements of the artwork.

Deadline for submissions for this round of competition will be Monday, March 15th (11:59pm UTC); the winners will be selected by Monday, March 22nd (PST). Artwork selected in this round of competition will be featured as IngressFS media from April to June..
