It's competition time again!
Before I get to the part where I tell you what you have to do in this competition, let me just skip ahead for a moment and get to the exiting bit - the main prize. Santa...I mean Crystal Dynamics has got a VERY special and exclusive Christmas present to place into the stocking of first place winner. Low and behold, the grand prize of this comp is a...
TR branded skateboard!
Yes, you heard it right, folks - one lucky TR fan will take home the skateboard that featured on the official blog back in September and which is exclusively available only for Crystal Dynamics team members, meaning that you cannot buy this skateboard anywhere or find it on eBay. And what's more, the skateboard will come AUTOGRAPHED by Karl, Darrell, Noah, Ron, Kyle, Brian, and a few other Crystal team members. A true must have for any skater - TR fan or die hard collector! And because Christmas is near, there are also a slew of additional cool prizes to be won, but more on those in a bit.
What you have to do for a shot at grabbing this rare piece of TR goodness is create a TR themed holiday card. You may freely choose any festivity in the holiday season for your subject - Christmas, Hanukkah, Sinterklaas, etc. Or just a generic "season greetings" card. And how you make the card is entirely up to you! You can do it digitally in Photoshop, create one by hand, or other. You can even get creative and do a video! Whatever method you choose, entries must be submitted either as 1 single image or 1 single video.
The core rules are:
- Maximum 3 entries per person.
- Maximum 1 image file or 1 video per entry. (image collages are okay)
- Animated GIFs are okay, but try to keep them under 500kb.
- Maximum 60 seconds for video submissions.
- Deadline: Saturday December 15
A little housekeeping:
- Entries will be collected on-the-fly and placed in the second post, which will be used for voting, so please post each new entry you make in a NEW forum post instead of editing earlier posts, so to preserve the correct order and so that we won't overlook any new entries.
- If you're using fan art made by someone else, be sure to get their permission. Crystal may not be able to send prizes to winners who use someone else's work without permission. Official media is okay to use.
- If you want to show multiple images in a single entry, make an image collage, for example like this.
