For individual artists and blockchain startups alike, the first stepping stone to public traction is to submit your NFT project to an aggregator site. This is the purpose of Omnimint’s NFT calendar. All projects are welcome, except those belonging to the “adult content” category.
As you have noticed when visiting the calendar, the submission is completely FREE. However, if you are submitting a new NFT project, ensure that you cover all bases when filling up the form and checking boxes. This will maximize your chances when the Omnimint team is reviewing your submission.
Get your project listed
First, let’s start with the project’s name. When people search Omnimint’s NFT collections, based on the few first letters, the autofill function offers matches. For example, just typing “bi” yields this result.
With more letters typed in, more results are filtered out. For this reason, it is very important to enter your project’s name correctly. Moreover, it doesn’t clash with a similar or identically named one. After all, by typing just 2–3 first letters, you would want your project to pop up as the first autofill result.
Both regular NFT investors and flippers rely on categories to filter out NFT projects they are not interested in. However, categories can be fickle, as your new NFT project may have its legs in multiple NFT lanes. For instance, your collection of trading card NFTs may consist of celebrities.
Furthermore, this may constitute a third category — collectible. Indeed, what if the project is about sports collectibles? Aren’t most athletes also celebrities?
To break the tie, you must settle for the project’s primary purpose, one that overrides all other potential subcategories. And only you know what that primary purpose is.

This is the selling pitch. The most important part when you submit an NFT project. The counter you see underneath the expandable textbox is the minimum number of characters you must submit to proceed.
With that said, it should also not be too long. As Shakespeare once said, “Brevity Is The Soul Of Wit.”
If you are unsure how to craft the selling pitch in a condensed form, you can always visit blue-chip NFT collections to learn from a proven master.
Typically, the project info entices users with a combination of lore, playfulness, and what makes it stand out from the crowd.
An optional feature but useful to add. If you are conflicted about category placement, you can check hashtags to further expand your reach. However, you are limited to four hashtag selections out of nine.
Just like on social media platforms, hashtags filter NFT categories when a hash symbol (#) is added to Omnimint’s main search bar.
If you have secured your domain name for the long haul, this is where to enter it.
To be on the safe side, it would be wise not to have one that ends with .ru (representing Russia). Unfortunately, thousands of such websites have been blocked by multiple governments in lieu of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
This may escalate further to a Domain Name System (DNS) level, where the entire .ru is deplatformed by some countries. Hopefully, by the time you are reading this, it has ceased to be an issue.
Twitter and Discord invite
To gauge the legitimacy of a new NFT project, investors must ensure some level of community activity. One that is organic and genuine. This is why social media links are critical, represented by the two most popular ones — Twitter and Discord.
A reminder that the Discord link needs to be for invites. To do that, follow this Discord tutorial related to making the server public, setting invite expirations, and getting the invite link itself.
Likewise, the Twitter link should not have any extra symbols/letters that usually pop up when redirected from a website. For example, Elon Musk has @elonmusk Twitter handle, which is precisely his Twitter URL after the “@” — https://twitter.com/elonmusk/
This is your typical email submission that you must have done thousands of times as an internet user.
Aside from paying attention to each letter, and triple-checking, you also need to enter a non-public email for editing your NFT project.
Image File Submission
Lastly, you will see two drop boxes for image submissions. When you click on the big “Browse Files” button, a File Explorer window will pop up, if you are using Windows OS. Browse through your computer’s folders to pick images that best represent your NFT project.
As you can see below, the image resolution should be in a 1:1 ratio, while at a minimum 1000px x 1000px resolution size.
All images are limited to 5 MB per file, which is more than enough to fit any file type except bitmap (bmp). However, almost all images are now standardized to png, jpg, or jpeg formats.
Omnimint organized its NFT collections by featuring each project with five sample images. Therefore, the drop box for the main image is the first one that users will see when clicking on your project.
However, there is a trick you can use to circumvent the five image limit. If you upload a .gif for the main image, it will cycle through dozens of images of your collection. Of course, it mustn’t exceed the 5 MB limit. You can check Stoned Ninjas submission to see how that looks.
There are hundreds of tools to make animated gif composites, but ezgif.com is the easiest one.
