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 #249 is "dan2091" from our own forums, who submitted this entry:

Fred: "Ever wonder what the fusion of Duke Nukem and Max Payne looks like? Well, BAM! There it is!"

In reality, this is Jacob, one of our game designers engaged in some random office fun!

His keyboard, the result of a fresh Carebear stare has left Jacob exhausted yet proud.

Jacob seeks inspiration while working on the Bombshells, Scales, Feathers, & Fur DLC.

Forget dual monitors. Dual heads are where it's at!

What we don't see is, Jacob's hidden stash of My Little Pony merchandise.

David Attenborough: Here we see the majestic game designer in his native habitat. As game designers are born completely naked, you can see that he has needed to kill and skin another of the local fauna in order to wear it's luxurious pelt for warmth.

I came here to eat honey and kick your ass. My honey is over.
