Greetings Adventurers,

 

We have some exciting news! The year is drawing to a close and we want to kick off 2017 in style. How are we going to do that, you ask? Well, what better way than to give you the opportunity to help design an Official Black Desert themed Calendar! During the month of November we'll be cycling the game seasons for everyone to experience and enjoy!

1. Picture The Seasons

Take a screenshot of your characters in the theme of each season. We encourage you to be creative and most of all, have fun! Our staff will pick the 5 best screenshots for each month and let you vote on the final winners to be featured in our 2017 calendar. Winners will be announced on November 28th.

  • Start Date: November 4th, 2016
  • End Date: November 20th, 2016 (Final Submission Date)
  • Voting Period: November 21st - 27th
  • Season Dates:
    • Autumn Weather [Sep, Oct, Nov]: 11/4 - 11/9
    • Winter Weather [Dec, Jan, Feb]: 11/10 - 11/11
    • Spring Weather [Mar, Apr, May]: 11/12 - 11/13
    • Summer Weather [Jun, Jul, Aug]: 11/14 - 11/15
       
      • Event Rules:
        • Players may upload up to 3 screenshots per season (A maximum of 12 total pictures).
        • Each screenshot should represent the months appropriate to that season and include your character in the picture.
        • Players must provide their correct Server & Family name in the form.
        • Submissions must be placed in the appropriate seasons form.
        • The screenshot with the highest votes for each month will be selected to be featured in the calendar.
        • Failure to abide by any of the above rules may result in voiding your eligibility to be selected as a winner.

           
      • FAQ:
      • Can we use editing software (ie: photoshop) to enhance the pictures?
        • You may only make minor adjustments to the color (hue/saturation/brightness) of the screenshot. No external assets may be added, as the screenshot must remain true to its stock appearance.
           
      • How big should the screenshots be?
        • 1080p (1920x1080 pixels) or larger is recommended, submissions should be in the highest quality available for your computer specs.
           
      • Is imgur required for submissions?
        • Yes, though we understand the concerns about potential compression or additional processing done via an external image hosting website. Winners will be given the opportunity to include a raw version of their image for maximum quality.
           
      • If I have already submitted an image can I swap my submission?
        • The forms do allow for users to go back and edit their submission in the event you have an issue, or would like to change your picture.
           
      • When will the season / weather changes end or take effect?
        • Each season will end and at 00:00 UTC (Similar to daily resets for quests, log in rewards, etc...). Please note it may require you to relog for the effects to be visible.
           
      • Prizes: Winners will be contacted via email with further details on how to claim their prize.
         
        • Top 12 Winners (Selected by Player Votes)

We'll be adjusting the game during the above listed dates to allow for the appropriate seasonal setting for players to enjoy and participate in. This includes snow for the winter to provide some spectacular screenshots.

Question about the screenshots that can be submitted. Must they come completely unmodified(except by what modes the game itself has to offer for different captures?), or do we have the liberty to modify the pictures as we see fit before submitting them(With the aid of different programs such as Photoshop, Fireworks, Paint, etc)?

Thank you for the reply.

Two questions I'd like to ask, just to make sure:

1) The screenshots have to represent the season in question, but it doesn't matter where or when they were taken, correct?

2) There can be as many characters on the screenshot as we want as long as our own character is one of them, is that also right?

Do we have to use imgur to upload screenshots? I could be wrong, but I think imgur can re-process images and downgrade their quality.
