Screenshot Community Event: Thank you for participating!

  • Comment
Two weeks ago, we launched our first Screenshot Community Event giving everyone the opportunity to submit a screenshot for Skyrim, Skyrim SE, Enderal, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76 depicting the event theme "Conflict and Struggle" and potentially win one of three prizes.

 

The turnout has been great and we are happy to say that dozens of screenarchers - newcomers and veterans alike - have entered the event. We all - that is the Nexus Mods team as well as our co-hosts for the event: Excellentium and napoleonofthestump - have been blown away by the sheer outpour of creativity we have seen from our screenshot community over these past two weeks!

We thank you all for participating in the event and for your contributions - be it your entries or just encouraging comments and feedback in the image share.

Please note that as of 04:00 PM (GMT) today, the contest entry form is now closed and that participants cannot edit their entries any longer.

During the next week, we will be picking 15 shots from 15 artists for the jury selection. Once that is done, keep your eyes peeled for a final news post concluding the event.

The three prizes will then be awarded at random: one £25 Steam Gift card will go to a random participant, two separate gift cards will be given to two different artists from the jury selection.

In the meantime, feel free to browse through the event related image category for Skyrim, Skyrim SE, Enderal, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76 and take a look at all the amazing screenshots and sets created by the community.

Thank you all!

    What kind of screenshots are they expecting? I play what looks child-like but is a custom Gelfling that I designed myself, with Babette as a Companion. Though. Style-wise. Their pretty futuristic. As I've made each an armor that would represent a modern anime-mercenary apocalyptic design and a space princess. Both are slightly skimpy but look matching my playing directive. Thanks.

    I'm quite certain that there will be another screenie competition!
    The Nexus guys will be reviewing how it went on their end, in order to try to make improvements to the way their competition system worked.

    Then, once they have made the necessary adjustments and sorted out who's doing what again, I'm confident they'll be doing another one :)

    This just means for us that we can take our time doing more cool screenshots. Hey, in this interim, see if you can all do images of different themes, then you can have some ready for whatever theme they do next! :D

    Looking forward to next one. I'm sure it will be easier to submit entries next time so I don't think there'll be much to worry about :)

      So long as we're also getting the paper. It makes me sad being handed some box or other container.

    Will there be a more open screenshot contest any time soon? The Division 2's photo mode has given me a few gems that I thought would fit this theme, but the games were limited to BethSoft ones.

      Huh? What makes you say that a game with three (3) mods, all of which are reshade presets would be more inclusive? It's a little early to be asking for the next event anyway.

      Possibly. This thing took quite a bit out of all of us, Nexus staffers and independents like Excellentium and myself, to run. Much more time and effort went into this than might be apparent at first glance. It really was a team effort, too- mad props to the Nexus folks for treating an amateur like myself with interest and respect. Though the public part of the event is wrapped up, there's a bit more conversation to be had on the back end about lessons learned, what went well/poorly, and how we could improve and where we might go with the next outing. Bear with us if that takes longer than you'd like- we'd really like to do this thing as well as humanly possible.

      One reason we chose to focus on Bethesda games for this event was the lively and organized community screen-shooting scene already present in these media. If you're interested in highlighting the visual potential of the Division franchise, consider organizing your fellow screen-shooters to create a community-run event of your own, like our Skyrim/Fallout Community Theme series. Communities that self-organize and show initiative in collaborating already will be more likely to receive official attention and support.

      The Division 2 sure does look pretty from afar- can't wait to see what you create with it!

      I would personally love to organize events like this for Ubisoft games. Their Photo Mode feature in recent games yields a lot of great results. I have quite a collection of great screenshots from these.

      I would do a Ubi-wide photomode contest. No prize, I don't have anything to give, but it would be fun. It would include games like AC: Odyssey and Origins, Far Cry 5, Division 2, and any others with photomode. It could also be extended to any game that has the Shift+F2 functionality, like Watch Dogs 2.

      Also, ajhardy, I feel your pain and second your eye-roll sigh.

      Thanks for the reply, Napoleon, I appreciate the work you, Excellentium, and the Nexus staff have done to put this together.

    Hi there, I love these type of community events. It's a great way to get the Nexus community involved. Will there be different games added to the list or will it always be the same games that are currently listed? Thanks for everything!

      In one form or another, we would love to organise and run more events for the wider community and/or different communities.

      I'd love to help organize events for Ubisoft games (or any game that supports Shift+F2 or Photo Mode).

      I like the enthusiasm sonic, but we're not done with this one until we've reviewed all the entries and given out the prizes :)

      Stay tuned for a closing news post with the judges selection and compilation of the entries.

    Oh it already ended? I was going to pick one of my shots from Skyrim i have here to enter in the event but forgot to do so.... and i am not playing it right now, so it is fine for me.
    Congrats to everyone involved and it was a really nice idea, i hope to see more contests, with or without prizes (and if so, a random prize is the best option, even if it is a copy of a random game or something like this). Being picky with the rules and separating people is not a good choice and i am glad you went the 'fair' way.

    Nothing will ever be perfect, as we are dealing with people, but i guess everything went as smooth as it could, even with some adversities.

    Thanks and, well, good luck everyone! :)

    Um I didn't enter, I just uploaded a shot to the image section and I got an update thanking me for participating. Weird. Good luck to everyone else though.

      That was coincidence. Every site member gets an update for a site-wide news post like this.
