International text and chat app Viber invited designers, artists, and illustrators worldwide to create a new 'Sticky Fingers' mascot sticker for their new global design initiative. Inspired by their own imagination and creativity, artists submitted an outstanding 2,816 sticker designs including dinosaurs, aliens, robots, zombies, pizzas and more. Viber selected ten talented Finalists to receive $1,000 and be in the running for Selected Artist. One out of these ten Finalists has now been chosen as the overall Selected Artist for the opportunity to work with the Viber design studio and develop their own character into sticker packs. This Selected Artist will also receive a revenue share for every sticker sold of their character design and exposure across Viber's social media channels. Not to bad, right? Chosen by the elite panel of judges at Viber, meet the Finalists, Most Shared, our personal Talenthouse picks and the one everyone's been waiting for, the overall Selected Artist, Drawk Man from St. Petersburg, Russia.
