Mission Complete: Father’s Day Effect Mission

Mission Complete: Father’s Day Effect Mission

To celebrate dads, we sent out a mission to beginner and professional effect developers around the world to create a dad-themed TikTok effect in Effect House. We’d like to thank everyone who participated. We received so many fun, interesting, and interactive dad-themed entries!

Criteria for judging

Our panel of judges scored all effect entries based on the following criteria:

  • Total views of videos featuring your effect (50%)
  • Relevance to the theme (30%)
  • Creativity (20%)

Our top effects

Because we received so many great entries, our judges chose 3 outstanding effects. These effects were featured on TikTok’s effect tray on Father’s Day, June 19, 2022.
