    Sounds like someone didn't win the last contest. Selected screenshots are fine, as far as i know by watching them on the loading screens.

    Yes i didnt won, and its not about that
    between all the entry, they were far more beautiful screenshot than the winner, one of the winner submitted it even after the max date, and still one

    and the previous contest was the same, they dont look the screen, they are choosed randomly

    I feel like there is something about "opinions" that I should say, but then it would be cliche.... So I won't... even though I already did.... or did I?

    Revisit whoever taught you English and get a refresher, or a new teacher.

    It is actually true... I did not participate myself but I saw insane screenshots not being taken while the ones which won were really disappointing.

    So many flavours and you choose salt. What a shame.

    The problem is that your opinion on what is good looking and what isn't doesn't matter. It matters what THEY think looks good. You didn't get picked, too bad... Get over it... cry to someone who actually cares... And stop throwing your salty tears on people who are actually excited about this.

    winner are randomly choosed and for both event they didnt deserved to win

    Nelyvia is right tho

    I've participated in every screenshot contest up to the previous one. This comes up every time, yes screenshots are a matter of taste but every contest there are always legitimately great, excellently captured shots that are ignored in favour of screenshots that are just absolute trash in comparison.

    I mean sure you can just assume that your own judgement is terrible and the great overlords of Kakao or whatever are the only ones with a functioning pair of eyes.. Or you can look for yourself at the contest discussion threads and see that every single poster - winners and losers both - is dismayed and disappointed because ugly, awful screenshots won.
    This is less a matter of people being sore losers (again, people who've won including me are upset as well) and more people being discouraged from further participation because it's very clear by now that screenshots are not legitimately judged on anything, just picked completely at random

    U got no eyes and no taste by any means if u think that last contest's screens werent good xD

    even considering that everyone's tastes are different
    its impossible to call those previous winners not well deserved

    the one before that and before that - i agree, that was super random

    Are there any specific 'rules' about the watermark on the picture? Because for the last contest all pictures that won had very visible watermark and all looked the same.

    Yeah and many of the screenshots didnt fit into the maintheme.
    Cherryblossom Screen-Contest means make a Screenshot fitting to the theme not from your slutty charakter ontop of a mountain or inside of a building.

    Sure there are some screens looking better than the winners but welp thats always the point with contests just because you spend 2 hours making the perfect screen doesn't mean the jury would like it.

    Saying winners are choosen random is just utterly bs.
