TikTok is home to endless hilarious, quirky and joyful moments. Video gamers are using TikTok to connect and celebrate the fun of living life as a self-proclaimed gamer. Fans of Epic Games' massively popular Fortnite, in particular, are a growing community on TikTok, using the platform to show off their latest moves popularized as Emotes in the game. 

Now, TikTok and Epic Games are teaming up and inviting TikTok users to help them birth a new Fortnite Emote. From January 18 to January 24, users up for the challenge need to take a video of themselves breaking into an original move using music from the official TikTok Fortnite playlist. Then, they need to share their submission on TikTok using the hashtag #EmoteRoyaleContest.

The winning move will become an Emote in Fortnite. The winner will also receive 25,000 V-Bucks and a Fortnite VIP giveaway package. The winner will be announced in February.

Fortnite community creators have already taken to TikTok to show users how it’s done, including...
