First two are pretty good, last two seem pretty generic compared to other shots I've seen floating around. Still, they're a lot better than the cherry blossom picks.

Edit: I just noticed that the second one (close up of rabbit in the tulips) is not 1920x1080 resolution, but 1914x1051... Then is having a 1080p or bigger screenshot not actually a requirement for winning? I'll also point out that the winners are all with english, bottom right, and set to 100 transparency watermarks. Could just be a coincidence, but I've been wrong before. Are watermark conditions an influence on winner picks?

See this time these are amazing pictures :) U guys got no right to complain ahah

@CM_Aethon still please answer about requirements for watermark. I see winner's screens only with medium size EU/NA watermark at 100% transparency and in the bottom right corner. So pictures watermarked with other region's watermark positioned differently, smaller size and transparent werent eligible? Or?

Like here.

Pretty sure you can't, they're pasted over the regular loading screen (zooming in/out the map on your character's position). You can tell this by looking at the edges of some of the loading screenshots (for cherry blossom anyways), you'll see a couple of pixels width of space where the map loading animation can still be seen... which means they didn't properly size the screenshots to cover the whole screen.

Another screenshot contest where winners get picked by RNG. 

I disagree. It seems this time they actually looked at the photos chosen. At least two of them had some decent traction on social media. 

But then, I guess any contest where I'm not included in the winner's pool must be RNG (kidding, kidding..). Frankly, I'm sympathetic toward the winners, with the responses to the winners in every screenshot contest, the prospect of winning is actually scary.

Yeah, this one is a lot better than the winning pick. The petals reflecting light in those particular spots makes me think of those large studio photography lights. I would have definitely enjoyed seeing this one as a loading screen. Oh well, congrats on winning still!

I submitted a few, but the best I had to offer was probably just this one. I wasn't very enthusiastic after cherry blossom contest.
