A Competition for In-Game Photography

The London Games Festival was held this past weekend. One of the events of the festival was the Virtual Photo Challenge, which is a photography contest like no other. Contestants took a screenshot of the best visual image they can find in a video game. The winner was Joe Meizies for the screenshot above from Red Dead Redemption 2. The contest certainly was looking for nice aesthetics, but also for skills that aren't part of most photography competitions. ā€‹

Perhaps controversially, entrants were allowed to use post-production techniques after taking the screenshot. However, that could be argued as being as much of a skill as finding the image in-game (and adjusting game camera settings) in the first place.

You can see the finalists from the Virtual Photo Challenge in this gallery, or take a peek at some of them below.
