The heart and soul of NeonMob is our global community. Yes, we’re a marketplace, and a game, but our beating heart is the creators sharing their art on NeonMob (often for the very first time), the avid art fans obsessively discovering and collecting, the super connectors offering dozens of trades a day, and the employees who dedicate their days (and nights) to building this magical, art-filled universe.
To support and nurture NeonMob’s rapidly-growing community, we recently launched a shiny new ambassador program. We received hundreds of applications, pouring through each of them to find NeonMobsters whose applications — and general use of NeonMob — exemplify the spirit of our community. This was not easy, and competition was fierce; we received a whopping 200+ applications for just 26 open slots.
These finalists hail from everywhere from Idaho to South Africa, Germany to New Zealand. They are artists, students, teachers, engineers, filmmakers, and more. As ambassadors, each of these stellar humans will be working closely with the NeonMob community team to make NeonMob even more awesome. Ambassadors will be evaluating submissions, providing feedback on submissions and in-progress series, welcoming new people, reaching out to talented artists, hosting trading chats, moderating and starting community conversations, and more.
Without further adieu, meet the NeonMob ambassadors!

To me, art is the looking glass through which the Heart finds proof of reality’s elasticity and impermanence. It’s through that connection that we know we are not alone, and that other hearts beat near us and can Hear us through the shared appreciation of art.
