Putting the best face forward, so to speak. Maybe a rotating carousel of the best of the best of the best high-def high-res EPIC serious DRAMATIC screenshots for the landing HLP page? The FB and Twitter pages? With some kind of blurb: 'Yes. THIS IS IN-ENGINE with FREE ASSETS. NO post-rendering.' :cool:

Actually such things can take several hours to arrange, and also could be used as "memorable moments" for whatever campaign you work on.Doing that exclusively for a contest where several people contribute and you might don't even end up winning isn't everyones favourite time sink. I'm only speaking of my own experience, as the pics of the Shivan Dyson Sphere took me hours to make and were originally intended to be a campaign highlight, I ended up giving those to the contest and didn't even made it under honorable mentions while some generic pics from already existing campaigns won.

Because those images are currently just attachments and will be deleted at some point, I uploaded them to Imgur.

Also it's unfair to characterize the winning screenshot that month or any month as "some generic pics from already existing campaigns".  Just because it's from something already released doesn't mean it's not a beautiful screenshot and the poster didn't put a lot of effort into it.

Yeah OK... but it was still nagging me.
