Contest: Astro Empires Everywhere

Postby Ikari » Wed 28 Oct, 2009 20:31

Hi guys!

Today we're launching a new contest for all Astro Empires to get involved in. A picture can say a thousand words, and we want yours to say twice as many ;-) First place will score a free years upgrade with second and third place taking six and three month upgrades respectively. So what excuse do you have to not get involved?!

Take an image of yourself or friend playing AE in an unusual or extreme way! Do you use 3 computers at once? Have you mapped out an entirely galaxy on printed sheets and posted them about your room? Have you ever accessed in a hospital? On your company fishing trip? After sneaking away from a date with your girlfriend? We want to see them and reward the best and most imaginative ones.

Here is an example shot to perhaps inspire you!


Some guidelines:
* Photos should demonstrate extreme or unusual play or fandom of AE
* Entries are to be sent to 'community@astroempires.com'
* Please include 'AE Everywhere' in your subject line
* Photoshop is allowed as long as a real photograph is at its core
* Multiple entries are allowed, however you can only win once!
* A selection of the best entries will be published on the blog
* Please include your username and server with your entry

* The best entries will be judged and selected by a panel of admins
* Entries close on December 31st
* The results will be announced in early January
