    "Each screenshot should represent the months appropriate to that season and include your character in the picture."
    Does it have to be the same character in every screenshot or can we use multiple characters, so long as it's still from our family?

    Eeeee! I'm looking forward to all the pretty seasons especially the snow!
    I'm moving in 2 months, it'd be a dream to have a BDO calender to decorate in my new place and kick off the new year!

    Exited there's a Halloween theme section now <3
    Does Halloween count as separate season or are we allowed 3 screenshots for Halloween and Autumn together?

    Last year, players bundled Halloween into Autumn. This year, Halloween is counted as a separate season from Autumn as you'll see in the google form submission section. :)

    RIP basic color balancing and making hair/fur look nicer.... Even tho this game does just this for promotional things.

    Anyway, I assume the 'backgrounds' are all the seasoned props located through out the game and not one big spot/location?

    For Halloween, it's the spooky props currently in game.

    For other backgrounds:
    Cherry Blossoms: Trees will have cherry blossoms on them
    Summer Tulips: Tulips will sprout in random places. You're also welcome to go to Calpheon for the tulip field there.
    Autumn: Trees will have orange/yellow leaves
    Winter: Snow will fall instead of rain

    Don't think it's a must to have the logo in the corner. Since as far as i can remember this years calendar didn't have them.

    Would prefer without it, but if you have it, that's fine. It just helps to have a clean image when cropping/resizing for the actual calendar.

    Do you have to buy the costume in pearl shop, to be able to participate in the contests?

    It may make your screenshots nicer, but it is not a requirement. You can craft nice outfits in game (please see bonus section to Event 1) or complete quests to obtain Halloween masks/accessories (please see Event 4). Halloween 2019 Details: http://bit.ly/BDOween2019

    So nice to have this event again.

    One question though:

    "Screenshots cannot be edited in any way in external software outside of the game"

    Does that count the Nvidia Ansel Tool in? Cause its basically IN the game... ^^ just asking.
