In the year since its release, Genshin Impact has become one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful gacha-RPG titles, and with its first birthday approaching many in the community are looking to miHoYo to see how they intend to celebrate it and perhaps because so many have become travelers, the developers have opted to launch a competition that will ask players to design an artwork that will be wrapped around a bus.
The bus art competition has commenced and players can submit a drawing that captures the theme of Genshin Impact and its anniversary. The dimension of the art should be 4800 X 2700, and its print resolution, that is, DPI, should be 300.
The publicity bus art competition will end on 13th September. Participants can submit their work to "[email protected]," or they can Tweet it with the following tags: @GenshinImpact and #GenshinImpactAnniversary.

miHoYo has also announced a Genshin Impact global concert event featuring symphonic performances of the authentic Genshin Impact music in Belgium and creative covers reimagined by artists from various countries.
In a press release, miHoYo said:
"The game is set in the vast world of Teyvat consisting of seven nations, each with a dedicated musical theme that evokes the history and culture of that area. The original Genshin Impact soundtracks are produced by HOYO-MiX, miHoYo’s in-house music team, and written by accomplished composer Yu-Peng Chen. Using traditional orchestral music as the base, Genshin Impact’s soundtracks incorporate assorted elements of world music in themes and variations for different areas.”
miHoYo further explained how they will present the multiple covers of Genshin Impact music to the world. They said, “In addition to a symphonic performance of the Genshin Impact soundtrack by a full classical orchestra, the approximately 90-minute concert will also have multiple stages in countries including the United States and South Korea, featuring reimagined iconic tracks adapted and played by various individuals and groups of artists.”
So far outside of the game, miHoYo has announced the bus art competition and the global concert that airs on 3rd October as their way to celebrate Genshin Impact's first anniversary.
In the game, players will get ten free Intertwined Wishes in the second phase of the version 2.1 update and a free character five-star character Aloy.
