Announcing a new thread/contest here on 2KGamer.com: Custom Unis/Courts Showcase!
This month, we will be awarding a $10 prize to two different winners:
1. “2KG Division”: Best 2KGamer-Themed Uniforms/Court
- In order to qualify, the uniforms/court must be themed as if the team is “2KGamer.”
- Of course you can use our existing graphics/font/style/etc. but you also can completely re-brand 2KGamer within how you brand your team as “2KGamer.”
2. “Open Division”: Your Choice in Theme Uniforms/Court
- You have total freedom as to how you theme/brand your team/uniforms/court. So it could be a re-brand of an NBA team, could be your own fictional team, could be anything.
- But, in order to qualify, still needs to have 2KGamer branding on the uniforms/court…as if 2KGamer is a sponsor/partner/etc. On both uniforms and court.
How to Enter
- Post a reply in this thread that includes images of your custom uniforms and court.
- Each entry must include:
- 1 Front and 1 Back image of the Home and Road Uniforms from the design screens (4 total).
- 1 image of the Court (1 total).
- (Additional in-game “action shots” can be included as well. But please limit this to an additional 5 images, at most.)
- The images used must be screencaps.
- Phone pictures of screens, or other sub-optimal images will disqualify entries from contention.
- But you can still “enter” and show off your work with phone pics, if you like.
- Post your entry by September 27, 2019, 11:59pm PST.
Determining the Winners
- Once the entry period closes, site mods will determine a short list of top contenders for each of the two categories.
- A new Topic will be posted to highlight the designs of the top contender entries.
- Winner of each division will receive a $10 prize, courtesy of @2KGamer.
- The final winner for each category will be determined by a public vote.
- Final winners will be showcased in a separate Topic that shows off their designs with in-game action shots, video, etc.
- To actually officially be named the winner in a division, and receive the prize, you will need to supply some additional action photos, if you didn’t already include these. You can present a really comprehensive package in your Winner Showcase.
- If you use graphics that were not created by you, then you must provide links to credit the original designer.
- Exception for using graphics associated with really well-known brands for which the provenance is obvious.
- The point is that you can win by putting together the design work of others into a uniforms/court package, but if your package includes the really cool design work of someone else, then that should be clear.
- Winners can enter future contests and contend in them, but new entry must be very substantially different from the old, winning entry.
- Your design must be viable in the game, i.e. must pass 2K “indecency” filters, as well as comply with our site guidelines on content.
- You must be a member to enter. I.e. you must post your own entry.
- You can vote for yourself. Once. (Remember, we have a one-account-per-person rule on this site.)
- Mods are disqualified from contending, but may “enter”/showcase their work.
- For creating screencaps for upload, at least on PS4, I think the easiest thing to do is:
- You create a different PSN account other than your primary.
- Capture screencaps in the game, on your console, and then send them as attachments to your alternate PSN account.
- Log into that PSN account on a computer or the PSN mobile app, and save the attached images for upload to an entry here.
- Of course, you can also do this by moving screencaps from console to USB drive and then attach that to some other device for upload here.
- For our “standard/official” 2KGamer graphics package, and for a guide to uploading images to access in the game, look here:
