The Wildlife #GamePhotographyChallenge Results

21 May 20201 minute read

The Play team challenged people on Twitter to take in-game photos of wildlife from some great videogames. Here are the results, including the winner they've crowned!

Last month, we launched the #GamePhotographyChallenge on Twitter. The premise was simple: Load up a game and take a photo of some digital wildlife. Our entries spanned videogames such as Spider-Man, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, which all contain a dedicated "Photo Mode" to let you get some good pictures. We certainly saw some interesting critters!

The contest is now over and it's time to crown our winner.

We're delighted to announce that Neil Sweeney has been awarded the prize, for his entry featuring an elephant in Far Cry.

We also wanted to take this opportunity to share some other photos from the contest which caught our imagination.
