View Full Version : Screen Shot Competition Anyone?

I find I am checking the boards every day, and I wondered if any other players would be up for a Screen Shot Competition? We could have it on a Monthly basis, with a cut off date for entries and then forum members could vote for their favourite shot. Whilst we can't realistically award tangible prizes, someone could make a cool sig banner so the winner can proudly display it in their posts thereafter.

Just wondered what others thought.

Apologies for posting this in 'Creatives' as well, wasn't sure where best to post it.

what are you going to be judging by ? the artistic part of the shot , or something like U107Wolff parking his boat ontop of a Nelson Battle ship or something? im always taking some sort of screen shots.

Realjambo

The judging could be by way of forum members votes so the winning picture could end up being anything - artistic, humorous, closest shave with another ship, biggest explosion, close up, that kind of thing.

I'm interested. Are there any restrictions on such things as editing the screenshots or that they be "as is" recorded in the game with no editing afterwards. There's no way I could compete with those who are into Photoshop and the likes.

Realjambo
03-08-2006, 11:47 AM
I think it should be limited to NON Photoshopped' pics IMHO. Someone could run a 'Photoshopped' only thread too, no problem with that.

I'm no longer playing SH3 ... however, you might find some of the pictures from the Murmansk convoy series of screenshots of interest. In particular, some of the sequences of Luftwaffe air attacks, including POV shots from the vicinity of the planes.

Ok, looks like we're off! Can anyone design a "Monthly Screen Shot Winner" Sig?

Also, should this thread be made a sticky? or shall we just keep posting here? I'm only asking so we all agree and we all know what's going on....

ALSO Remember:

1. Yes, you can post as many as you like, if Ubi's servers can handle it! Just remember if there are hundreds and thousands to trawl through people might go goggle eyed and go do somethingelse instead lol
2. Hoping it will be a monthly comp, CLOSING DATE will be Friday 31st March. With the poll closing for judging ONE WEEK later on Friday 7th April. Fair innit?

Well done Vozzek and Con20or for the inaugural posts!

Realjambo
03-08-2006, 12:56 PM
Well, there's mothing tangible anyone can win really, given I don't work for Ubisoft and therefore don't have a 'Prize' budget. BUT! just like people want to display the '100k' banner and are always asking how t get it and what it means, I thought if someone could have a crack at designing a 'Monthly Screen Shot Winner' sig then the winner each month can display that as their /part of their sig.

Unless anyone else can think of a prize, given we live all over the world!.....

i think if youre gonna have a "best of" shots , it might be better to have catagories, such as boat shots , attacks ,sinking ships and scenery and stuff like that . of course that fizilbert guys got the scenery thing happening to the 5th power.

Must still be slipping under the 512KB limit as im doing nothing special other than uploading then linking. What screen res are you using? as that may make a difference http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Here's my contribution to this excellent thread, unlike the fantastic picture above my pics are natural and not enhanced!

Also we chould have two catagories - original and enhanced pictures - as this could be unfair to those who are not as talented with the likes of Photoshop etc.

Here's my three best pictures I still have;

Lumberjack Song - Monty Python
I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Chorus:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shopping and have buttered scones for tea

Mounties:
He cut down trees, he eat his lunch
He go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he go shopping and has buttered scones for tea.

Chorus:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I skip and jump
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women's clothing and hang around in bars.

Mounties:
He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women's clothing and hangs around in bars?!

Chorus:
He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I wear high heels
Suspenders and a bra.
I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my dear papa!

Mounties:
He cuts down trees, he wears high heels?!
Suspenders...and a bra?!

...He's a lumberjack and he's OK
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

...He's/I'm a lumberjack and he's/I'm OK
He/I sleep all night and he/I work all day.

U-107 being depth charged with a depth of 50 meters

And with severe flooding and fighting a losing battle after being punished down below, U-107 surfaces to surrender - only to be pulverised on the surface! Blasted Royal Navy!

Fellow Kaleuns! just a reminder today is the last day to post screen shots for this month's competition.

Voting can start tomorrow, I think the easiest way is to submit a post in this thread saying something along the lines of "I vote for 'A.N. Other's' 3rd screenshot, of the sub just clearing the waves in the storm'...obviously just describe the screen shot birefly so I'm sure which one you mean.

Good idea Goose, we just need to get people voting first I guess! Ok, if everyone else is happy, top 5 voted for pics go through to a knock out.

I'd suggest voting for the intiial round ends April 10th (?) to give everyone a fair chance (and a weekend) to see all the submissions.

I'm gonna bug Ubisoft AGAIN for a prize, but hey don't hold your breaths! At best it may just be a pen or something!
