  • In-game photography (also known as screenshot art, screenshot photography and professional gaming photography) is a form of new media art, which consists of photographing video game worlds. - Wikipedia ()
  • If your game doesn't accept screenshot commands, try using Fraps. Consoles and Steam have screenshot functions as well. Ask in the discussion thread if you experience technical difficulty.
  • For ideas on what would count as an acceptable entry please see the following:
    1. A screenshot from a 3D game with a fully controllable first-person or flying view.
    2. A screenshot of a carefully set-up scene. Carefully putting together some type of scene within a game, either using the normal characters or imported sprites/mods. You can even submit sources for the mods you have used in crafting your scene.
    3. A screenshot of some sort of specific gaming moment, such as a speedrun with your timer or an incredible game-winning moment. A description to help explain the image may be helpful here.
