Paragon Studios has announced a new contest for creative-types. Players have a month to create a new loading screen and, if chosen, to see their artwork immortalized in the game. Devs have provided all of the information and templates that are necessary to make the loading screen. The contest runs from August 20-September 20, 2010.
Now for the fun part! Roam around your favorite Paragon City and Rogue Isles zones as a photographer, taking artistically composed shots of the zones' coolest landmarks and vistas. In particular, focus on the signature areas that make the zone unique. As you set up your shots, look for interesting camera angles (perhaps a very low or high angle or maybe a shot with your subject in the middleground and some other object in the immediate foreground)--in other words, get creative! When you're done, take your best three shots and plug them into the provided frames, and voila. Here are a few requirements you will need to follow for your entries to be valid:
All of the directions, templates, submission guidelines, fine print and more are on the official CoH Design a Load Screen page.
