Enter my Star Citizen screenshot contest for your chance at some great digital prizes!
October’s Star Citizen screenshot contest just wrapped up and we’re launching right into November’s! The last contest received a huge batch of fantastic entries showcasing the “Big & Small” theme in a variety of creative ways. Congratulations again to ninjedy, RedSolstice, and GameVogue for taking home the prizes furnished by Cloud Imperium Games and to KungLi for the Honorable Mention. If you want to see the results from October’s contest, go here. This month’s contest will work the exact same way… except with new prizes, a new theme (“Close-up“), and new guest judges.

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.
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?
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.
