Valve Software is launching one of the largest art contests ever in gaming with the $1 Million Dreams and Nightmares Content Contest.
According to Valve:
In short, we are looking for 10 original and shippable, dream-themed weapon finishes for CS:GO. Each of the 10 winning entries will earn $100,000. Beyond submitting your original weapon finish to the CS:GO Workshop, all you need to enter is a non-limited Steam account (with purchase(s) totaling $5 or more). And yes, teams of more than one person can also enter.
To help content creators get a better feel for what we’re looking for we’ve launched a dedicated web site for the contest (http://counter-strike.net/dreams). On this site you’ll find more info on the types of finishes we’re looking for, examples of the Dreams & Nightmares theme, info on how to enter, the nitty gritty (aka legal) details of the contest, and more.
We launched the Workshop 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 & Nightmares Content Contest is designed to help further support this community.
