Enter my Star Citizen screenshot contest for your chance at some great digital prizes!

   UPDATE: 2020-11-05   

THE CONTEST IS OVER… and here are the results

October’s screenshot contest “Big & Small” closed with another huge batch of fantastic entries from the Star Citizen community! Check out the top three prize winners and the honorable mention below along with some comments from the judges. You can also see ALL the entries further down the page. I’ll be running another Star Citizen screenshot soon… so check my site or follow me on Twitter for updates!


“Penguin Face-off”  by ninjedy

I love this shot, showing both the scale & range of Star Citizen… Also I love penguins!BoreGamer
Perfect composition, the story, using of depth of field and colours. Congrats with the 1st place!Aleksandr 'Narayan' Belov
The framing, the lighting, the use of depth to compare and position the penguins… it’s all great.Hasgaha


“The Jump”  by RedSolstice

Though in a much more minimalist style this really captures something that makes me happy about the game.BoreGamer
I don’t know why, but I can’t take my eyes from it. Perfect shot! Congrats with the 2nd place!Aleksandr 'Narayan' Belov
The most dynamic entry I think I saw. The dark silhouette of the jumper against the washed out background is very well done and clearly meets the theme. One of my only complaints is the lack of focus & clarity on the Carrack.Hasgaha


“Steed”  by GameVogue

I always forget how big the 890 Jump is… I am seeing a theme of SC screenshots that show the scale fo the game.BoreGamer
My beloved ship in Star Citizen – and this is good shot, wich demonstrate the size of it. Congrats with the 3rd place!Aleksandr 'Narayan' Belov
The composition, color, and crispness on this shot are just perfect. The pose of the person has just enough definition to be immediately recognizable.Hasgaha


“Friendship”  by KungLi

Friends are important as are huge gameplay areas to explore with them. This shot has so much going on.BoreGamer
Anytime someone puts extra effort into the overly done “sunset shot”, I get excited. The subtle two silhouettes on the hill watching the sunset over a valley of even more rocky silhouettes showing the scale of this scene really caught my attention.Hasgaha

CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!! I’ll be contacting them shortly. And thanks to all who participated as well as my fellow judges on this contest; BoredGamer and Aleksandr ‘Narayan’ Belov.

On the CONTEST ENDS date listed above, submissions will stop and our esteemed judges will start the process of meticulously looking through ALL the entries. Entries will be judged on the following:

  • Interpretation & execution of the THEME:
    How well does your screenshot capture and/or convey the theme of the contest.
  • Composition:
    The arrangement of the elements within the photo should be pleasing to the eye. How well did you use the available space within the frame? Does the placement of the elements and position of the camera suit the idea or theme of the image?
  • Creativity:
    Does your image convey the idea or theme in an original and imaginative way? Does the image hint at a deeper story or was it captured in an unconventional way?

Judging will be done privately and on an individual basis by the selected judges. This is NOT done in committee or with discussion among other judges. Judge votes are theirs alone and theirs to be given as they see fit. All votes from the judges will remain anonymous and will never be disclosed to the public. While voting, judges will only see the images and image titles. They will not see usernames attached to entries nor how many votes from other judges an entry might have. 

Judging, unless otherwise specified, will occur in multiple rounds. Entries with the lowest votes will be removed and NOT proceed to subsequent rounds. The number of rounds could vary for each contest based on how many entries are received.

Things to consider that won’t hurt your chances, but are NOT required:

  • As high a resolution image as you can take. 1920 x 1080 is the bare minimum… go higher if you can.
  • The highest image quality (as little compression) as possible. Remember, while JPGs are easy, they are a LOSSY compressed format and are a degraded form of what you saw in game. Lossless PNG is recommended.
  • Submitting older screenshots from previous versions of the game IS allowed if they match the theme and meet the requirements. However, the game’s graphics, textures, lighting, shadows, etc are constantly being improved and older screenshots might have a hard time competing with current screenshots.

Hey! I’ve been a Star Citizen backer since 2016.
