Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Photo Contest

By: Lord Bowser (talk)

Greetings, 'Shroom readers! I hope you remember me, your former Fun Stuff director. If not -- hi, I'm me! Anyway, it's time to announce a new smashing photo contest!

You might remember the Super Mario Odyssey photo contest I hosted here last year. This contest is mostly the same as that one, except the game we'll be focusing on is none other than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Just like last time, this is simply a friendly competition where you can show off your fancy action shots and such from the game. The guidelines for this contest are mostly the same as last time, but I'll reiterate for everyone's convenience.

  • There will be three categories for photos submitted; Action, Beauty, and Creative.
    • The Action category is for all those wild and flashy KO moves, sweet spots, combos, and everything in between that makes Smash, well, Smash. Post your best hard-hitters here!
    • The Beauty category is for those lovely details, backgrounds, and landscapes all throughout the game, along with any cute photo shoots of your favorite characters. Post your wholesome content here!
    • The Creative category is for silly, unexpected, and/or terrifying photos, memes, and anything that doesn't really fit the above two categories. Post your weird and unexplainable pictures here!
  • Photos must be taken in-game using Camera Controls in the pause menu. You may use any filter you please and adjust the photo to your liking. You may use any character(s) on any stage with any ruleset.
  • You may provide text for your photo to add to its content, using either the Switch's photo editor and incorporating the text directly onto the photo, or as a caption to go along with the photo.
  • When the submission period of the contest closes, the submitted photos will be displayed in a gallery in March's 'Shroom issue, accompanied by polls asking which photos are the best of each category. The winners of each category will be announced in April's 'Shroom issue.
  • Below are some visual examples of each of the three categories. You do not need to follow these examples at all; they simply serve as possible references.

Contest rules

  • All submissions must be sent either in a PM to me on the forums or in a DM to me on Discord (my tag is LB#6333). You must send me a link to your image, be it a Facebook or Twitter post, an Imgur link, etc. in your message. Your account details will not be made public.
  • You may submit under any or all of the three categories, but only one submission per category per person is allowed. In your submission message, make sure to specify which photos belong to which categories, or else they will not be featured in the contest.
    • Additionally, if you wish to provide an accompanying caption for a photo, include it in the message as well.
  • All submissions are final. You may not rescind a submission and send me a different one later. Please be sure your image is exactly how you like it before you send it in!
  • To keep things on a level playing field, further editing of images beyond Smash's Camera Controls and the Switch's photo editor is not allowed.
  • The deadline for all photo submissions is Tuesday, March 12th, 2019, at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Any further submissions beyond this time will not be accepted.

If you have any further questions regarding this contest, please make sure to ask me! Good luck and have fun!
