    Default Best Screenshots of September - White After Labor Day

    Best Screenshots of September Competition


    During each week in September, I'll be running a competition to select the best screenshots that fit the theme of that week.

    The theme will be announced on or around each Saturday with the deadline for submissions being before midnight EST on the following Saturday. The winner for that week will be announced the following Sunday.

    Up to two (2) submission are allowed per contestant per weekly contest. It is possible for a contestant to be awarded points for both entries for the week (see below)

    The first place winner of the week will receive a code for 500 DDO points generously provided by SSG.

    At the end of the month, I will total points from the winners of each of the 4 weekly screenshot contests

    4 points awarded for first place screenshot of the week
    3 points awarded for second place screenshot of the week
    1 point awarded for honorable mention screenshots of the week (more than one honorable mention may be given depending on quality of entries)

    The player with the highest number of points at the end of September will receive a code for 500 DDO points - again generously provided by SSG. The runner up with the second highest number of points will also receive a code for 500 DDO points. In the event of a tie, I will choose the tie breaker based on the overall strength of their body of work

    Submissions will be judged on the following criteria.

    • Composition
    • Creativity
    • Novelty i.e. something new...if the screenshot has already appeared in other screenshot of the week competitions or is too similar to other entries in this competition it will be judged less favorably
    • Pose
    • Adherence to the theme of the week


    Screenshots without visible UI, damage numbers and floating names will be judged more favorably (CRTL-Z). Shots featuring player characters will also be judged more favorably

    Judgement is completely arbitrary and based on my subjective tastes

    Default White After Labor Day - Week 1

    This Weeks Theme - White after Labor Day

    The rules:

    Post up to two of your best screenshots featuring something White in this thread before midnight Eastern time Saturday, September 8th (23:59 EST Saturday September 8th) . There are no specifics on this screenshot. It can be in a raid, in a quest, standing in a public area, whatever you like. However, it does need to fit the theme in terms of highlighting this color.

    Here are some Examples









    Screenshots sent in private messages or otherwise will not qualify for this competition. They must be posted in this thread between IMG tags by the date and time specified. The first place winner will receive a code for 500 SSG points by private message on Sunday, September 9th.

    Hmmm. I don't know if this is what you had in mind... I don't actually have any white cosmetics/armor but just something white... going over my recent screenshots I have a pair from running Wheloon that might be appropriate.

    This is exactly what I had in mind...just a splash of white will do.

    I really like how you captured the lightning arcing from the sky in the second shot with the spectral creature in the background. Very nice work Aelonwy!

    Question:
    Does my character have to be in the shot? Would him being/not being in it directly affect the judging?

    It doesn't have to be your character per se - a party member would be valid as would a random player on the streets of Stormreach. I do prefer shots featuring the people playing the game over NPC/monsters and will judge those more favorably. But that is only one factor in judging. A shot of monster/NPC/landscape still qualifies - and, if the composition and creativity of the shot exceeds the competition, could still win.
