BOS Screenshot Contest (Enter Here)

Recommended Posts

Dear Pilots,


 


Now that 1.011 update is out which contains the new Velikie Luki map we are ready to have some fun!


 


Today we are happy to announce our first ever screenshot contest for Battle of Stalingrad! The contest will run through May 31st 2015 with winners announced on June 6th 2015. The development team will pick the winners.


 


How to Enter:


 


To enter just post your screen here in this thread and note what category you are entering.


 


Categories:


 


Air Combat


High Altitude Air Combat


Ground Pounding


Scenic


Other


Modified


 


Rules:


 


All entries must be in 16:9 or 16:10 ratio and be no smaller than 1280x720 pixels (High Definition) in size.


 


You can enter in only one category for each pic.


 


All images in the Air Combat, Ground Pounding, Scenic and Other categories must be straight from the game with no editing or SweetFX applied. The Modified category can have SweetFX active. However, no Photoshopped images are allowed in any category. Antialising and Supersampling is allowed while the image is being captured in any category.


 


All entries must be new images not previously posted on the forum or elsewhere.


 


Custom skins are allowed in the images. Historical or historically inspired skins are greatly encouraged. Please no wild schemes. Swastikas are not allowed. Please use a modified decal or none at all. We are sorry for this historical limitation, but the politics and laws of this issue are not worth the hassle.


 


Prizes:


 


Each category will have three winners.


 


1st Prize = $200 USD


2nd Prize = $100 USD


3rd Prize = $50 USD


 


Prize winners who reside outside Russia will be paid via PayPal or Western Union. Bank wires will not be sent. Any Russian winners will be paid by the Moscow office via the most convenient method available.


 


Your screens will help us show the world how beautiful BOS is. There is no way the team can produce enough cool images. We need the community’s help. So let’s have a contest!


 


Good luck to all participants! Let’s fly and take some awesome pics!

Please no post-editing. I'm not sure that blur is natural.

Guys,

 

I know you are just trying to be encouraging, but please do not comment on pics. I just want to see entries (easier to collect and judge winners) not commentary and quoting which wastes space and make this thread a mess. Just let the entries speak for themselves.  :)

 

Off to a good start!

 

Thanks,

Jason

Dammit!!!

 

I just, realised: All the screens I posted are in the wrong format.

 

Do I need to crop them to 16:10 and repost them?
