The GTPlanet Photo Mode Competitions Start This Week

Site Announcements October 30, 2017 by

Sim racing shutterbugs, get ready: we’re kicking off the next generation of the GTPlanet Photo Mode competitions, and we’re doing it across three of the biggest titles this year.

It’s been a busy few months in our favorite genre. In terms of sports car racing, it all kicked off just over a month ago with Project CARS 2 (read our review here). Only a week later, Microsoft unleashed Forza Motorsport 7 (review here). Then, in the middle of this month, PS4 racers were finally able to get their hands on Gran Turismo Sport (yep, you guessed it — here’s the GTP review). It’s as if all the developers got together to truly test the idea of having too much of a good thing.

With all three out, we’re turning our attention to one of the more popular aspects of our community: photo mode. While the long-running competitions started with Gran Turismo, we’re expanding the format to other popular titles within our community.

As the game that launched first out of the trio, we’ll be starting with Project CARS 2. You’ll see the first competition later today. Forza Motorsport 7 will follow on Wednesday, while the GT Sport comp and its 1000+ Scapes will get underway on Friday.

How to Take Part

First thing’s first: you’ll need a GTPlanet account.

Once you’ve got that, simply head to the associated comments thread for any competition article you’re interested in. There, you’ll find the week’s specific requirements, as well as general rules.

You can post your entry in the thread itself, either by uploading it to the GTPlanet Media section, or directly within your post. Mark it with big red “FINAL ENTRY” text, and you’re set!

After a week, we’ll collect all the entries into a poll for the community to vote on. Once that’s done, the winner will get to pick the following week’s theme, and their image will be shared across the GTPlanet social media accounts (like our Twitter and Instagram). We may add something else in from time to time…

We’ve long believed that the GTPlanet community is capable of frankly stunning photo mode work in these games, and this is our way of putting that work in the spotlight.

Stay tuned — the Project CARS 2 competition will go live in a few hours!
