THE CONTEST IS OVER… and here are the results


“Play of Directions”  by RedSolstice

Loved this image. Found it was not only an extremely interesting use of the space, colour, and really just the game art / location itself, but it also perfectly meshed with the theme. I honestly have no suggestions for making it better. From the second I saw it I wanted it to win.David 'Erris' Alloggia
Within the context of “Juxtaposition”, this scene is a step-above our expectations. Not only does it convey a strong sense of the theme, but also captures a mood, tells a story and yet invokes mystery. Excellently cropped, lit and focused, originally I was unaware this was actually in the ‘verse but I had found it in the Aspire Grand of Microtech. The diatribe tells a story of Star Citizen.Seggellion
Lines in different directions; lines and circles, in focus and out of focus, color, pattern versus solid… so many different elements within a single image showcasing the theme: juxtaposition. Well framed, perfectly executed, unique, and well deserving of the unanimous first place vote from all three judges. Hasgaha


“PortO”  by TheSpaceCoder

Really loved this shot. The framing of the planet itself was excellent, leaving some negative space on the left and right, and the station firmly in the center was perfect. Really liked the colour as well – excellent photo all around.David 'Erris' Alloggia
When starting this competition, I had expected a comparison of PO to Olisar, and I believe this image had accomplished that in the best possible way. Moreover does it display a sense of serenity, I find an emotional connection where this one graphic represents the past, present and future of the verse. If I were to use one image to paint the picture of Star Citizen, it should be this.Seggellion
I’m always a sucker for showing the massive size difference between Port Olisar and Crusader against the backdrop of space. I think the blue tint/saturation is a little strong… but other than that, I really enjoyed this image. Well done.Hasgaha


“Light vs Dense”  by MaidenAriana

Really loved the juxtaposition on this one. The void of space on the left, the clutter of the asteroids on the right. I do wonder if it might have been a better photo either without the ship in frame, or with the ship being face on maybe? The ship just didn’t feel like it was fully a part of the image. Everything else was excellent though. (and for the record it’s my favourite ship, so I’m not even docking it points like I would have if it was like, a Connie or something : P )David 'Erris' Alloggia
Ariana captured a textbook representation of juxtaposition. There’s something about this photo I love, it shows the stillness between two states of chaos. I appreciate that the artist chose to not have too much asteroid density, or perspective–and accomplished a balanced texture which compliments the opposite darkness of space.Seggellion
The alignment on this shot is incredibly accurate and almost perfect. The division between empty space and ring is dead center… the ship is just ever-so-slightly off but only noticeable if one (me) starts drawing guide lines to check it. It’s a great take on the theme, though I’m not sure the ship helps the composition. At least not in it’s current position/orientation. I think it helps add scale and depth, but I find it distracting as it is. MAYBE try the same shot but with the ship moving vertically from bottom to top through the frame so that the engine trails straddle that space/ring line?Hasgaha


“Titan”  by bloknaryb

Excellent photo – love the rising (or setting?) sun in the background. To me the character in the foreground seemed weirdly framed – might have been better as a landscape, or possibly with the head closer than the legs? Still lovely work!David 'Erris' Alloggia
I loved the amount of motion in this image. Similar to other images–this photo tells a story and I can almost hear the soundtrack that accompanies it. With that, It may not be as strong in the theme of “Juxtaposition”. This is an excellent use of cropping, lighting and costume and I appreciate the work behind this image. Thank you!Seggellion
The angle on this shot is so disorientating and almost aggravating… but in a good way. There’s a bit of contrast/conflict in this image that makes it very interesting to me. The well-lit figure in the foreground versus the dark side of Crusader in the background. The figure itself drawing my eyes up through to the sun on the horizon… but her eyes are looking in a completely different direction at something out of frame. It’s a unique and interesting composition. 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; David ‘Erris’ Alloggia and Seggellion.

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.
  • An image with the first person GUI (ammo count, health meter, etc) or third party overlay (Discord, FPS counter, etc) does NOT look great. Try to remember to use the robust Advanced Camera System AND hide any overlays BEFORE capturing your shot.
