Emote Royale 2022: Groove (or Just Move) to Inspire a Future Fortnite Emote!

The Fortnite Team

Show us your moves… or simply movements.

Fortnite’s Emote Royale contest is back, giving you the chance to inspire the creation of an in-game Emote! How does it work? Take a video of yourself performing an original dance or original motion, then share your submission on TikTok or Instagram Reels using the hashtags #EmoteRoyale2022 and #contest. The winning dance or motion will become an Emote in Fortnite, and the winning submitter will receive $2,500 USD plus the Emote!

That’s right, for this Emote Royale, your submission doesn’t have to be a dance. It can be a non-dance movement instead! The submission period for Emote Royale 2022 begins June 9, 2022, at 10 AM ET and will run until June 15, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET. All contest entries must be submitted during the submission period, and each participant is limited to one entry. Don’t forget to include both hashtags in your submission!

Please note that if you’d like to include music in your video, you must use one of the Fortnite tracks in the download folder below. Looking to include some flair? The folder also has Fortnite sound effects!


Participants must be at least 13 years old to participate in Emote Royale 2022. For complete contest details and requirements, be sure to check out the official Emote Royale 2022 rules.
