Calling all digital fashionistas, artists, creative types and gamers. We have a challenge for you! As you can see Gamers Giving Back has gone pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’ve picked our finest shades and we are now strutting our stuff on the digital runway like a majestic flamingo. Yes, we have just claimed a website can strut and be a flamingo simultaneously because that’s just how we do it.
We are not content with just changing the colours on our website and social media, oh no. Our members of staff will be donning pink in every game they can and we want all of you to do the same!
It’s easy enough to do but it’s no fun unless we can see it. Which brings us to the challenge! In a shocking twist there will be no screenshots involved… ok we lied, that is exactly what is involved. Make your digital self pink, take a screenshot and send us the image. If your favourite game does not allow you to pick colours, get creative! MS paint over it if you have too! The only rule is the image must contain a player dressed in pink. We love a pink landscape most days but it is not what we are going for this time.
To enter, attach your pink image to your comment below. You do not have to register to comment either, just link your Facebook, Twitter or Disqus account and off you go. The images can be from any video game however you will need to be a Guild Wars 2 player to receive the prize. The prize is an exclusive in-game clothing item which can be seen here.
Leave your in-game name in your comment if you would like to be eligible to win.
We will be checking back periodically to see how wonderful you all look. The deadline is Friday 19th, any comment posted after that date will not be counted. The winner will be announced some time after the Pink Day in LA event. Go forth and think pink!!
- UPDATE -
Forgive us, for we have been slow! We have picked our winners…that’s right there is more then one! We were so impressed we couldn’t give a prize to just one, instead we have picked our top three:
1st Place - Mouse (Imozg) – We felt this captured the spirit of Pink Day in LA nicely!
2nd Place – Fathrim – For their group screenshot with a falling lady! Must have taken a few attempts to get that screenshot just right.
3rd Place – One Sassy Sissy – Creative use of underwater colours!
We will be contacting all three of you in-game with more details soon! Thank you everyone for taking part!
