Steam Announces Dreams and Nightmares Design Winners

Today the winners of the $1 Million Dreams and Nightmares Content Contest for CS:GO, one of the largest art contests ever in gaming (and perhaps technology in general), have been announced – with an additional seven winners selected, bringing the grand total prize pool to $1.7 mil (US).

The contest saw over 15,000 submissions from artists and/or art teams from around the world. The winners will be awarded $100,000 each for the original and playable, dream-themed items made and submitted to the CS:GO Workshop.

The winning 17 items were produced by a collection of 24 artists, some working as individuals and some as teams. Of those 24 artists, 14 were first time contributors to the Workshop.

Workshop was launched on Steam almost 10 years ago in the hopes of creating a centralized hub for community created content. Since then, over five million content creators have submitted and published over 20 million new items for a variety of games on Steam, making them available for purchase to millions of gamers around the world. And, as everyone who plays these games knows – including CS players – many of the most iconic in-game items, maps, and more have been authored by members of the community. The Dreams and Nightmares Content Contest was designed to help further support this community.
