The rules are rather simple. The section “Place” offered a huge blank canva where users can insert a pixel every five minutes so as to create pictures. This year’s edition was such a success that Reddit had to extend the available surface on the canva.
Communities from all around the world have joined to participate in battles to represent their respective country. A strong power struggle notably occurred between French and Spanish communities. Each tried to establish their “territory” on the canva.
Beside those patriotic moves, the canva was strongly decorated with different types of pixel drawings, such as logos, celebrities, or pop culture references (video games, cartoons, memes…). For example, Kirby, Totoro, Post Malone or Star Wars were represented. Luxembourg also got to be represented on the Reddit canva. In its small pixel area, located in the center and then left-side of the Italian flag, you can perceive the Gëlle Fra, the country, the Pont Adolphe and the lovely Luxembourgish flag.

If the event follows this five-year timeline, the next edition might occur in 2027.
