Developer CD Projekt Red has announced an official Cyberpunk 2077 photography contest. Fans of the upcoming game can send in pictures that show a “cyberpunk vibe” for a chance to win prizes.
The contest encourages fans to “capture the dark future all around you” using their photos. The entry page doesn’t list many requirements for the photos, save that they need to show a “real-world location that has a Cyberpunk look and/or feel.” It also only allows minor edits to photos. In addition, Cyberpunk 2077‘s official twitter page has clarified that entrants can submit their photos even if they have already posted them elsewhere online.
Liam Wong, a photographer famous for his cyberpunk-style photography, will join the studio’s panel of experts to judge the contest.

The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed
The panel of experts will decide which photos do the best job, awarding first, second, and third-place prizes. The first-place winner will receive $4000, the Cyberpunk 2077 Collector’s Edition, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, an Adobe Creative Cloud license, a VIP Bomber Jacket, and a bag with Cyberpunk swag. Second- and third-place winners will get $2000 and $1000, respectively, along with the game, the swag bag, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 S. Second place will also receive the Adobe Creative Cloud license.
Fortunately, for those who don’t want to trust the judges, community voting will also choose some winners. The entrant with the most community votes will receive the same prize as the jury-picked winner. Meanwhile, entrants that earn the second- through tenth-most votes will get the Cyberpunk swag.
The contest begins October 14 and will last until December 16. After the contest ends, voting will take place between January 10, 2020, and January 20. The jury will announce the winners on January 27.
Anyone interested can submit their photo now on the official Cyberpunk 2077 website.
