Fortnite & TikTok Launch Emote Royale Contest

Fortnite TikTok Contest

Fortnite’s newest collaboration sees it team up with TikTok to launch the Emote Royale Contest. The competition, which is already live and will run until January 24, gives people the chance to get immortalized in this battle royale game forever.

Those looking to participate in this contest will have to submit a video of themselves performing an original dance move on TikTok.

The video must not be longer than 15 seconds in length and must have the #EmoteRoyaleContest hashtag in the title.


Further, it must include one of the pre-selected Fortnite emote tracks. The tracks can be added to a clip in the TikTok app or downloaded from Epic Games’ blog.

To be considered for evaluation, video submissions must be made during the contest period. As said earlier, the Emote Royale Contest ends on January 24, 2020, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Note that participants must be at least 13 years old to be eligible to win. You can check the official contest rules here.

All qualified submissions will be reviewed and scored by a panel of qualified judges to select the winning entrant. The winner will then be notified via TikTok on or about January 31, 2020.


At the time of reporting, the #EmoteRoyaleContest hashtag had gathered over 155 million views on TikTok.

What does the winner get?

The winning dance selected through this contest will become an Emote in Fortnite. For those who are unaware, Fortnite Emotes are in-game cosmetic items that allow players to express themselves uniquely on the battlefield.

Emotes see player characters acting out entertaining moves in the game. Players can purchase Emotes in the Item Shop using V-Bucks (the game’s digital currency) or win one in the Battle Pass seasons.


In addition to getting themselves immortalized in a Fortnite Emote forever, the winner will also receive 25,000 V-Bucks, as well as a Fortnite VIP giveaway package.

The VIP package includes a NEFF hoodie, a Sprayground crossbody bag, a UNIQLO hoodie, a Jazwares Battle Bus Drone, a Jazwares Glider Drone, a NERF SMG, a Funko Collectible, a Bitty Boomer wireless speaker, a Trends custom lithograph poster, a Dark Fire Xbox Bundle, a Dark Fire PS4 Bundle, and a pack of Jenga: Fortnite Edition.

So get going now and show off your dance skills to get a chance to take home all this. Not sure how to do it? Check out this video by Fortnite community creator Jordan Fisher. He can be seen dancing alongside his own Fortnite Emote in this TikTok video.
