For the 2024 Gem of TikTok Contest

Contest Rules:




Our mission is to democratically identify the most influential video on TikTok, uploaded before the year 2024. This endeavor seeks not only to highlight exemplary content but perhaps to elevate it to become the most viewed video on the platform.

Language Requirement:

Submissions must be in English or, if in another language, accompanied by English subtitles, ensuring inclusivity and broader understanding.


Leon (Arik) Schenkler, TikTok Account: @ariksworld123456. As the organizer, my decisions are final. I am committed to sharing influential content through my "1111 Life Lessons" video series, aiming to inspire and cause action towards achieving your dreams.


Open to all TikTok users who agree to abide by these official rules. Participants must not suggest or vote for videos in which they have been involved in production or have a deep personal connection to the creator, beyond that of a typical follower. This measure ensures the contest's integrity, focusing purely on the merit of content rather than personal affiliations.

Participation Guidelines:

To suggest or vote, participants should comment on contest videos with the link to their nominated or voted video,starting with https. We ask for your cooperation in submitting only the link, and strictly one suggestion or vote per phase, to maintain fairness. All submissions must adhere to TikTok's community guidelines and copyright laws.

Definition of an Influential Video:

An influential video is one that has been saved to your 'Favorites' and viewed at least five times, sparking thought, emotion, and action. We encourage nominations of truly impactful videos that have touched your life. The contest celebrates videos uploaded to TikTok before 2024, with plans to continue annually.

Video Submission Cap:

The first phase will cap at 777 nominated videos. This limit is set to ensure manageability and encourage thorough engagement from participants and the organizer alike. From these nominations, we will progressively narrow down to 77 videos, then to 7, and finally to the singular, winning video.

Suggestion Phase:

Each TikTok user may suggest one video. Submissions are subject to organizer approval. Once 777 nominations are reached, this phase will close. Exceeding nominations or insufficient suggestions will be addressed at the organizer's discretion, ensuring a selection that best represents our community's voice.

Voting Mechanics:

Voting will be conducted through comments on designated contest videos, with each TikTok user entitled to one vote per phase. Choose wisely, as your vote contributes to celebrating the most resonant video contributions on the platform.


The creator of the winning video and one randomly selected participant will receive the "Breath, Think, Write" self-coaching technique manual, embodying the spirit of introspection and growth that this contest promotes.

Technology and Process:

We are committed to conducting this contest entirely within the TikTok ecosystem, leveraging software tools for comment extraction and data analysis in Excel. This method ensures fairness, with early extraction given precedence in the case of duplicate or same multi nominations.

Re-posting and Accessibility:

To facilitate viewing, the initial 777 nominated videos will be re-posted on my account, eventually narrowing down to the top 77 and then the final 7. Ultimately, all 777 videos will be made accessible again, celebrating the breadth of our TikTok community's creativity.

Website Integration:

Official rules and phase updates, along with the nominated videos at each contest stage, will be accessible through dedicated pages on my website, ( culminating in a feature for the winning video.
