Screenshot Competition: Winners and Prizes

  • Comment
A few weeks ago, we asked you to submit your best Red Dead Redemption 2 shots in our screenshot competition in which we are giving away three Steam gift cards. The turnout has been great and our jury had an absolute blast looking through over 250 stunning entries

Without further ado, here are our top 3 picks:


The Winners

1st place goes to...

"Desert Beauty" by Raz3d - Congratulations! The prize of a £50 Steam Gift Card is yours to claim!


This image is simply stunning. From the colours and the motive to the composition itself it is a work of art. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a beautiful game that lends itself to amazing landscape shots, but what Raz3d has pulled of here is exceptional. A #1 spot well deserved!


2nd place goes to... 

"Alone" by jabmasta - Congratulations on a great screenshot and on winning a £25 Steam Gift Card!


This aptly named shot illustrates loneliness quite well with our protagonist striking the perfect pose to complement the composition. While many amazing screenshots focus on landscape and nature, this one is about conveying an emotion in a town setting.


3rd place goes to...

"Riding into the Sunset" by itaberless - Congratulations to you, as well. A £10 Steam Gift Card is yours to claim!


An excellent screenshot that must have been tricky to pull off. The sun hitting the tree in just the right angle gives the shot a unique feel with a perfect balance between light and dark colours. Well done!


And with that being said: thank you to everyone who participated! Believe us when we say that it was no easy task picking only three screenshots from the many, many amazing entries we received.

We hope to see you again in our next event. Until then, stay tuned!

    I'm sorry, but I have to object to the first. They stole the spot from the trailer. Why is no one seeing this? Sure they took it in game but it's a almost complete ripoff.

      I was thinking no wonder he won he has a better graphics card, but Ive never played, and unless Rockstar paid Nexus, then your right that's cheap they gotta fix that

    I refuse to believe that the first picture isn't just a picture taken in real life!

    Both 2nd and 3rd shots are not flawless. The male figure tilt in the 2nd picture is dramatic and glorious, but unfortunately some object on the ground obstructs the view of man's feet which looks hilarious to me. I think there's no need to argue about what the shoes mean to man's look.

    The 3rd picture is worse. That tree in the middle of the composition not only provoke the sun rays beautiful splitting, it also pins the rider and his horse to the spot. I wonder how they can move.

      In the 1st shot I don't like the straight line of three cactuses.

    The first one's pretty awesome! The other two are nice but the lack of color variety in the runners-up kinda makes them all look the same. I dig gold too, but it'd be neat to see more variation in future contest winners.

      The first one is just the same shot where the trailer was. They really just stole it.

    I would have liked to have taken part but I couldn't even get this dumpster fire to work without crashing until a week ago so taking pictures was out of the question
