Win a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV

1 min read

This weeks competition is a big one.

Run away....

With the release of GTA IV next week it was quite obvious what I wanted to give away, however it is going to be a little harder and hopefully for entertaining to enter this week.

There are three ways to enter this weeks comp, each way worth more than the last.

What you need to do is find yourself a GTA IV screenshot (use Google) and then mimic it in Photoshop. Make it personal, local or just plain wacky..

Then email that and the original screenshot to [email protected], You can easily use the same screenshot to make as many entries as you want which means that every individual image will be worth 1 entry

Dress Up
The next option is to once again find a screenshot, then dress up, pose like the screenshot and get someone to take a photo… Every photo is worth 3 entries and artistic licence is encouraged….

The hardest and most beneficial way to enter is by downloading either a trailer or screenshot and then videoing yourself in the same situation. You can send the avi’s wmv’s to the same email address as above or just upload them straight to YouTube.

Each video entry is worth 10 entries.

So like I said this week it’s harder but hopefully the entries still come in.

The prize is kindly being sponsored by Megarom and will be the standard Xbox 360 version.

Entries close at 7am on Tuesday the 29th to give our launch party readers a chance to enter their launch pics.

The winner will be decided by a random drawing of all viable entries. This is being done  to hopefully give everyone who tries a fair chance.

PS: takes no responsibility for any laws broken during the course of this competition… try use your imagination and not really go out there and attack cops

    Quick question. Does, taking a photo (i.e. Dress Up) and then also Photoshopping it count as 4 entries? πŸ™‚

    Also, closing date is this Friday?

  • How about if we do a screenshot montage in video form to get the 10 votes? πŸ˜‰

    doobiwan’s last blog post..The GTA4 & Rock Band combo:Xbox 360’s European Assault

  • LazySAGamer

    any video made by yourself will be counted as a video entry.. So yes doobiwan that would be accepted… However doing the same video 10 times with the screenshots in different places will not πŸ˜‰

    @Naudran, absolutely that would be 4 entries if they were submitted as 1 Photo and 1 Photoshop screenshot.

    Deadline is Tuesday morning. I know it’s after the release date but there are launch parties on Monday evening where you can get a lot of photo entries done

  • SlippyMadFrog

    Question, is the winner also going to be picked randomly like the last comp since you are talking about # of entries?

  • LazySAGamer

    Yes the winner will be drawn at random from all accepted entries.

    Hopefully this gives everyone a fair chance to win and not just the graphics guru’s….

  • alphaV1za

    Can I use that pic you got up there? πŸ™„

  • Abe

    So if its random whats the point of effort?

  • Fox1

    You need the effort to get in as many entries.

  • SlippyMadFrog

    That’s what I was thinking as well. I guess it gives me a chance as well since I have [email protected] artistic skillz

  • LazySAGamer

    Two things..

    If I make it random it gives everyone a fair chance,

    However you graphic design guys can easily make entries faster than us graphically disadvantaged individuals….

    it would take me a whole day to make a Photoshop screenie πŸ˜‰

  • Hmm… doobi has another evil idea …

  • Naudran

    As evil as talking about yourself in the 3rd person? πŸ˜‰

  • No, nooo, doobi has far more evil idea’s than that, Mwaahahah!!!

  • Fudzy

    Where can we find a gallery of the entries?

  • LazySAGamer

    I will post the best ones at the end and depending on the amount of entries I will post as many as I can fit realistically

  • janrik

    It would be a truly awesome prize if the winner gets it on the 25th… since just about the whole world pre-ordered this sucker, what do you do with your 2nd copy, if you win?

  • LazySAGamer

    Now that would be awesome, but unfortunately that would be the last prize I ever get to give out then.

    I thought about giving it out on the launch day itself but then again I have to post it so you won’t get it to the next day anyway…

    A second sealed copy may be worth millions one day πŸ˜›
