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

   UPDATE: 2023-02-13   

THE CONTEST IS OVER… and here are the results

January’s screenshot contest, “Out for a Walk”, has ended! 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.


“Lost on Aberdeen”  by Eul_keke

Classic silhouette walking into the sunset. I love the contrast of land and sky, the figure splitting the horizon, and the desolation of the sun baking the landscape. The image timing perfectly captures the walking stride. The scale of the figure against the vast backdrop informs the depth of isolation. This screenshot stood out from the very beginning.Chanticrow
This screenshot felt like a painting to me. Something that could be printed and put up on the wall. The colors, composition, and tone really set it apart from the other entries.STARJUMP_GRIM
The scale, framing, composition and lighting are all perfect. And of course, Keke’s mastery of color and color grading take this shot to another level. Just an incredible image.Hasgaha


“The Very First Step”  by Lapernum

Fantastic evocation of early spacefaring days. The lighting and reflection off the helmet’s visor is great. The upright Herald-rocket seals the deal.Chanticrow
This image really grabbed my attention with its classic space adventure feel. I am a big NASA fan boy and this looked exactly like what i think a promo shot for recruiting astronauts would look like. Great job on capturing the feeling of adventure and desolation in one image.STARJUMP_GRIM
Like the other judges have said, this image really pulls the nostalgia strings. The bright white and crisp focus of the suit makes it stand out nicely from the grey background and makes for a nice, dynamic depth. The vertical Herald was a great touch too.Hasgaha


“Space Walk”  by Zimbadabim

This space walk’s composition stood out. Great use of the planet’s curve and the positioning of the character to fill the space, and that distant star centering the piece.Chanticrow
This screenshot captured the unique magic that is Star Citizen to me. The ability to float in zero g over a planet or moon is just not something you can do in other games. This could easily be on the back of the box for Star Citizen and easily attract new citizens.STARJUMP_GRIM
The composition for this shot is fantastic. The space walker is almost completely in shadow so their dark legs hanging down over the bright blue horizon and the thin highlights on their left are the perfect amount of definition to explain the scene. Very well done.Hasgaha


“deep under”  by MAXPER

I love the beautiful film noir effect of the lamp and surrounding particle effects. This image feels like a snapshot of a much larger story. It is relief? Finally, here is his goal, revealed in heavenly light. Or is it sinister? That shady dealer loitering under the street lamp. “Scher, bub. I got yer O2. You got the merits?”Chanticrow
Another great use of framing, color, light, and shadow to create a lot of depth and ambience. Great job.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; Chanticrow and STARJUMP_GRIM.

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.
