    You and your pet screenshot contest awards!


    The "You and your pet screenshot contest" has received many exciting contributions from places all over Entropia Universe and we would like to start with sending a big Thank You to all participants for their individual contributions.

    The job of the jury was to single out 4 images based on creativity and overall aesthetics and we are glad that we have found 4 contributions that not only matches these criteria but also shows the diversity of Entropia Universe with very different avatar styles and from four distinct environments.

    Here are the winners in place 1-4:

    [​IMG]

    1:st place goes to avatar Magnus Svarog Henriksen for his exotic screenshot from the Corinth area in the northwestern part of Eudoria. The image manages to capture the close affection between the avatar and his ancient Exarosaur pet on a sunset beach in a way that simply made our jaws drop.

    [​IMG]

    2:nd place is awarded to avatar Roslyn Kaz Farstar for the lava-hot picture of her flame throwing Chirin Dragon pet and a spectacularly well timed sci-fi fashionista-look swordplay pose.

    [​IMG]

    3:rd place takes us to a jungle setting where avatar Alaina Bonnie Knight at first might see a bit out of place in her not so khaki colored and outback-fitted clothing.

    The image composition with a dancing Eudorian Devil pet and high contrasts in color still manages to capture the important feeling that your Avatar can be anything you want inside Entropia and that your pet of choice really can enhance that experience.

    [​IMG]

    From exotic to lava-hot and jungle settings, 4:th place takes us to the rocky mountains of Thule where avatar SpikE SpikE Odets playes with his Corinthian Kanin in the snow on a mountain peak as the sun paints the landscape in a spectacularly warm and welcoming color scheme. The extra rabbit ears also gives this image a subtle and yet playful tone.


    We wish all the winners the very best and hope that you will have much fun with your new rare pets.


    As we have received many more talented, fun and exciting contributions that is worthy of notice 6 additional runner-up prizes in the form of Pet name-tags will be awarded. The avatars that will receive these honorary Pet name-tags are:

    • Una Griph Alconbury
    • True slimpek Hunter
    • Ea Aia Nou
    • Lola Ulpuana Lola
    • David Hoek Liode
    • Milton Osga Hastings


    The contributions from these 6 avatars will be presented here on www.enropiauniverse.com in the coming weeks.

    Have fun in Entropia and don't forget to play with your pet :)

    Could you please show me a better submission that has a different pet in it?

    I haven't seen anyone even post a screenshot with a pet from another planet.

    actually there are a few posted on the PCF with pets from other planets. So I assume more have been mailed in as well.

    You are correct, completely forgot about those. However, the only one there one could make a case for is T97s as a runner up.

    Would be fun to see more people post their contributions.

    They are all nice. I actually like #4 the most because of the interaction between the avatar and pet.

    Grats to the winners.

    Hehe, rather unsurprisingly Caly ruled results. [​IMG]
    Though that was the first prediction anyway, when MA announced the contest in a Calypso news letter.
    So in a way, it did live up to it's expectations. [​IMG]
    You work with what you get ofc, but the coincidence makes me laugh.
    (With only various Caly pet/landscapes, and the winner's pets ranked to the prizes.)
    Still, they did manage to get awesome images for pet & Caly promotion this way.
    Or, like the announcement states: it "shows the diversity of Entropia Universe".
    Oh well, lets wait for the runner ups: perhaps there is some universal diversity amongst those, as an afterthought. [​IMG]

    Regardless, gratz to the winners!
    There are some very nice entries in there: clearly created with much better PCs. [​IMG]
    Those graphics look very sharp. And do highlight what EU can look like.
    Composition, color scheme and lightning are actually a lot better than some of the compet promos we've seen.
    It shows the time and effort the participants have put in their shots.
    And nice that the winner's entries have only slightly 'enhancing' Photoshopping usage.
    Glad that there are still occasions where a 'photographer's eye' can outdo a 'PS pro'.
