Are you up to the challenge?

Welcome to FPSB's Team Fortress 2 skinning contest!


While the default TF2 sniper rifle skin is nice, vanilla ice cream is also nice, but chocolate coated strawberry ice cream with sprinkles is better and we think there are skinners out there with an uber charge of creativity ready to lift the sniper rifle to new heights - are you this skinner?

Here are the rules:


Entrants for this contest must design a replacement for the Sniper's sniper rifle in TF2. The replacement can be a recolor, reskin, or a skin on a new custom model. Entries for this contest must be submitted in the Skins > TF2 > Sniper Rifle Skin Contest category in order to be considered for the prize. One entry per person please. The judges for this contest may not participate.

Irresistible prize package:


The prize for first place in this contest will be $50 cash, an FPSB keyring and sticker pack, and a front page feature of your skin.

Important contest information:


The contest will be open for one month from the submission date of this thread. When the contest submission period has expired, the entries will be judged on craftsmanship, detail, technical ability, and creativity by our three judges. The judges favorites will then be passed on to you, the public, for final voting.

Meet the judges:

Kimono-

A multi-talented artist, Kimono's skills include texturing, compiling, and modelling. His membership here dates back more than three years.

Teh Snake-

A skinner and member of over two years, his talents include modelling, compiling, and texture work.

BlackHoleSon-

The junior member of this judging panel, he's been a member for over one year. He is an experienced skinner and texture artist.

Good luck to all those who choose to participate in this competition.


To view the submissions, either click the link in the contestants box or go here. Also, for the contestants, please put the link, and only the link, for your submission in the project box when you have submitted your skin. Thanks.

    Why no prize for second or third? If there isn't one, once someone like millenia enters, everyone will give up.

    Meh, points are always a nice driving force too although what you listed is better. Keep the 2,000 if you want for the contest or send em back here. Makes no difference to me.

    Fifty dollars? I'm so in.

    Do I have to create the actual replacement or can I just create a model? Do I have to create everything by myself or can I double-team with a friend?

    The prize would be sent to one person. It would be up to the winner at that point if they choose to split up the prize from there.

    Please Everyone who wants to enter this contest do not be afraid to. The site would love to have you participate. =)

    This site is not a popularity contest. Just because someone in particular enters that is no reason why you should frown upon entering.

    You never know what the judges will do. There is a good chance that you might create something spectacular.

    So basically the people who submit new models ( with custom skin) have a greater chance of winning then someone who submitted just a reskin?
