Announcing the Winners!

The competition is, regretfully, over.

During its course we have received a plethora of truly amazing entries! On both accounts, text and photos, your participation was simply overwhelming: over 200 stories and almost 60 photos in all ! Picking out the best of the best was no simple task. Unfortunately, we only had a very limited number of rewards to give away, which only made our job even harder.  

Anyway, we probably should not keep you waiting any longer :)

Here are the 'tweeter' winners of the 2 Standard Edition versions, as they were auto-selected by random pick:


Next up are the other winners of the other 2 Standard Editions, whose short stories stood out from the rest - even if only just marginally.

Wild Monkey

And now we come to what you've all been reading this far down for: the winners for the 2 Collector's Editions of the Game! First an opening speech :p

Your photos were fantastic. Some of them took us to places we shall probably never be able to visit (in this lifetime), others were humorous and fun to look at and others told whole stories - true proof that "a picture is worth a thousand words". Alas, only two could win. We had such a hard time selecting them and still we feel we were unfair to the rest of you. The two entries that won us over did so either because they took our advice ("lots of people and funny") quite literally to the extremes, or for the amount of effort and sentiment they conveyed for the game.

Here are their names and inspirations:

rehBaron from Portugal

This happy couple, which we hope we just made happier, got 53k people in the frame - apparently to cheer for Guild Wars 2 ! 

Gyès from Belgium

We would really love to know how long it took you, merry winner, to create this absolutely beautiful piece of work! Incontestable proof of your love for the game.

To the runner-ups: we made a photo album with your entries because we really liked them and they shouldn't be forgotten!

We wish we had more gifts to give away, but at this point we don't. However, we promise that in the near future we feel we will be in a position to give you in-game items etc. through fun events. This is a strong gut feeling ;)

Thank you all for participating!
See you in Tyria.

Wild Monkey's post is in Greek, that's why it was not made public :)
I could link it if you like.

Re: Announcing the Winners!

But my picture was legit, with alot of people in it :( I guess they didn't understand that the Bar photo was real... So that's why it didn't even make the album :(

Well thanks a lot for choosing my picture :D I'm really really glad my work was appreciated. It took me about 16 hours to get it done :)

Re: Announcing the Winners!

Thank you , ALL, for honoring us with your photographs! We had to rule out some for not complying to the rules we set, which were quite simple to follow, so we were left with so many amazing entries! We were forced to choose two. We wish we could reward more of you :(
