"The same year I won NFT of the Year, I was carrying my paintings in the rain to a local bar and carrying them home when none of them sold. NFTs have empowered me to spread my message thanks to the support of collectors who believed in me, and the NFT Awards program is providing a venue to recognize and elevate the work of fellow creators in the NFT community," said Micah Johnson, whose work won 2020 NFT of the Year.
