Picture the Seasons Event Winners!

181 posts in this topic

Greetings Adventurers,

Today I have the pleasure of announcing the winners for the 'Picture the Seasons' event. First off let me say holy cow! We've had a tremendous number of awesome submissions totaling in at 4,500+ images, from all sorts of beautiful & exotic locations in the Black Desert Online world. Some of you even managed to turn areas that we'd believed to be rather bland and uninteresting into some jaw dropping works of art.

It certainly wasn't easy to whittle down the numbers to just the finalists for the community to vote on, and today we crunched the numbers and carefully tallied your votes to find out what 12 lucky winners will be featured in the 2017 Black Desert Online Calendar!

The Contest Winners
  • The pictures featured below in all their visual glory are the communities choice for the 2017 Calendar, we're pumped to see how these look on a physical calendar. I'm going to have to steal borrow the first ones that come into the office to show off on the wall near my desk! 

    Congratulations All!

The Runners Up
  • While not everyone could win, there is certainly no shame to be had in taking place in a runners up position, the competition was fierce. We'd like to commend these folks on some excellent submissions and congratulate them on their prizes!

[Note]

As some of you have noticed, during our blind staff picks (involving multiple staff members in the process) we mistakenly nominated two users twice. We'd like to take a moment to sincerely apologize about this mishap, we were unfortunately not able to address it prior to the voting process and as such there will be only 46 runners up.

 

After a lengthy internal discussion we have decided that those who were nominated twice will only receive one reward appropriate to the bracket they placed in. As this would remain the fairest option available given the situation, we appreciate your understanding and will take steps to prevent this in future contests.

 

** Update on prize delivery **

Greetings All,

We've investigated the claims and confirmed there were issues on our end with the delivery of the prizes. As a result of this some players received the incorrect prize package via their account claim page. In the interest of fairness and to ensure that all players receive an appropriate level of reward we will be awarding all winners (Runners Up and the Top 12) an additional prize pack.

To clarify:

  • Players that received the [Runners Up] package will also receive a single first place package.
  • Players that received the [First Place] package will also receive a single runners up package.

You may safely claim the currently available rewards in your account page at this time, we hope to have the additional prizes delivered by next Monday (12/12/2016). We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and thank you for your understanding.

I won!! :o *faints*

Congratulations to all winners and runner-ups!

If possible, I feel Kakao should pick 2 extra people for the runner-up list because of the nomination mistake. 60 people getting the title is a pretty low number, and it feels unfair it's even lower because of a mistake. It shouldn't be difficult to pick 2 extra people to give runner-up rewards to considering how many great screenshots were submitted.

Congratulations to the winners! I think every screenshot that won really deserved it this time around and people made a good choice for pretty much every month, although it wasn't always my favorite tha won. ^_^

As some of you have noticed, during our blind staff picks (involving multiple staff members in the process) we mistakenly nominated two users twice. We'd like to take a moment to sincerely apologize about this mishap, we were unfortunately not able to address it prior to the voting process and as such there will be only 46 runners up.

Could you perhaps share some insight into how exactly those 'blind staff picks' went down and what your criteria were? Because many of us - including several winners - were very confused about certain choices for the runners-up, maybe you have read some of the posts in the last thread concerning this event. You said yourself that there were over 4500 submissions, but took only a single day to determine the Top 60 among those - I find it hard to believe that you had a chance to look at all of them and the runners-up reflected that imo, hence why I am still under the assumption that the selection was at least a partly random process or at the very least extremely arbitrary.

I'd suggest taking more time for the selection, should you ever do an event like this again, and putting more care into the selection of the winners the next time. I feel very disappointed with this event and somewhat frustrated to have put in a lot of effort into this, only to then lose to screenshots that I don't feel should have had a chance against even half of the submissions in this thread. I don't think I'll get as excited about any future screenshot-related events again, knowing how it went down this time.

And thus as exptected it's a win-win for Kakao/Daum. Spend less money on the winners 'cause there are only 46. And yet have all the rights of more than 4500+ pictures. I see what you did there.

Yay I made it into the calendar! Congratulations to winners and runner-ups!!! :D

Thanks to everyone who voted for my January pic, all the chosen screenshots look awesome it will be one pretty calendar!

Thanks to the stuff for running this event (4500+ screenshots to sort through!), it was handeled a lot better than the ones before (how the voting worked and all), quite some improvement even though not everything went smooth, I agree with FluffyQuack that 2 more runner-ups would have been a really nice gesture.

Thanks all! :3

Congrats to all who made it into the runner-up list and of course to the winners.

Question: how are the rewards going to be delivered? It would be nice if we could get them before the sales end.
