Fortnite is bringing back the Boogie Down Contest for fans’ emote ideas, this time with the help of video-sharing social platform TikTok.
The Boogie Down Contest was a big hit first time around, as fans sent in videos with their own ideas for new emotes and dances to be added to Fortnite.
Classics such as ‘Orange Shirt Kid’ made the cut, and it was a great way for the community to get involved directly with content in the game.
It’s surprising, therefore, that it took quite so long for Epic Games to bring the contest back. This time though, submissions will be unique, as they are to be made on TikTok.
TikTok is the spiritual successor to Vine; very short videos which loop and can instantly go viral thanks to hashtags and trends.

As it has surged in popularity, TikTok is a sensible place for Fortnite to host the Boogie Down Contest, now officially renamed to Emote Royale.
How to enter Emote Royale Contest on TikTok
Epic Games have explained how it will all go down: “Take a video of yourself breaking into an original dance move, then share your submission on TikTok using the hashtag #EmoteRoyaleContest.”
In addition to getting your emote in the game, the winner will also get 25,000 V-Bucks and a Fortnite VIP giveaway package.
The contest is open for entries on January 18, at 12AM PST, and will end on January 24, at 11:59PM PST.
Rules of Emote Royale contest
To avoid any copyright issues, you must use one of the pre-approved dance tracks to create the emote.
You must also be at least 13 years old to enter, but if you’re younger than this and have a good idea, simply get a friend who is older to do the submission for you.
