View Full Version : Camera Captioning Contest #247

Long time visitors to the 3D Realms website may remember an old regular feature, the "Camera Captioning Contest". It ran for a long time on our site. The original edition was posted in May of 1996, and it ran almost 11 years, going though till January 2007. With the relaunch of the 3D Realms Website, as well as the announcement of Bombshell, we thought it was time to bring back this much loved feature of the website.

If you happened to be around back when the old contest was run, you'll find it is mostly the same, but somewhat different. When the old contest ended, things like Facebook and Twitter did not exist. They do now, and that's the new wrinkle. In the old days, submissions were sent in via email, and we selected the winners. This time around the new pictures will be posted on our website, and the submissions will be taken on Facebook, Twitter, and our own forums. We will pick the winners from these entries. One catch though. The entries must be submitted to us using the hashtag #3drcam (especially if on Twitter). If you don't use that hashtag, we won't see your submission.


The prize if you are chosen as a winner will be one of the Bombshell dog tags that were given away to press at GDC recently in San Francisco (shown to your right).

Once a winner is chosen, we will get in touch with them via social media for info on where to send the prize.

Prizes may or may not change going forward. The old contest had the same prize for almost the entire 11 year run, but this time, we are looking to do something different with the prizes.

Make sure that when you send us your entry that you use the hashtag #3drcam (especially if using Twitter) and post it on one of the requested social media outlets - otherwise we won't see it.

Each entry will run for two weeks, starting on a Wednesday, and closing on the second Tuesday after that.


The winner for Contest #246 is "MrBlackCat" from our own forums, who submitted this entry:

Scott: "Hey, check out my extensive selfie collection! Oops, that one was meant for my eyes only."
Becky: "o__o"

"Oh heck, my translator was in Polish..
Now, I know why they didn't answer me for hours and look at me so oddly."

The stealthy tilt fart can be tricky to pull off on the boss level.

Beckys look is that of fear or horror to me. lol
At least relative to 3D Realms, all I could imagine is Becky saying "kkiilll-meee"... Hehehe

"Becky has finally made eye contact with a passing stranger. Her mind races as how to communicate that she is being held captive, using only facial expressions. She can not be noticed... as a life in game development could be her dim, horrid future."

1- Realizing she's just been caught in an unfurnished hotel room with a man twice her age, Becky questions why she ever left med-school.

2- Chairless Tuesdays isn't sitting too well with Becky.

*Note- I was sad to see a fart joke already taken.

After seeing the Statue of J.F. Kennedy in Aalborg, 3D Realms feels that they should erect one for Duke Nukem, for good PR. Image shows: Scott is texting Gearbox to make sure they know it’s real, not just in Unreal, while Becky is memorizing the opening ceremony speech.

247 seconds earlier...

Becky: "Scott, I'm scared."

Scott: "Yeah, they're after us... I know."

Becky: "How can you be so calm, when there are fans outside about to break that door raging for more Bombshell footage and a Bombshell demo."

Scott: "Been there, done that. When they get in, don't move a muscle, and they won't notice you."

Becky: "..."
