The results are in…

Another year and another group of incredible art entries! It just gets better and better. We’ve gone through hundreds (!) of incredible Loading Screen Art Contest entries to narrow them down to the winning entries. Thank you to everyone that entered, it was (as always) an extremely difficult task for us to pick the Grand Prize Winner and Finalists. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to see everyone’s creative ideas and artistic talent—the artistic talent in the Blade & Soul community continues to blow us away.

While we’re just showing the winners here, you’ll definitely want to check out the hundreds of we received in the 2018 Loading Screen Art Contest Entries gallery on our Facebook page.

 

Grand Prize Winner

Return

Congrats Return! We absolutely love how you showcased The Pot Dog Adventurers getting into their usual trouble by snooping around where they shouldn’t be. It’s a dog-eat-dog world after all!

As our Grand Prize Winner, Return will be receiving $150 worth of Hongmoon Coin, the exclusive community events costume “Kindred Soul”, and their art showcased in Blade & Soul as a loading screen.

Finalists

We can’t state it enough: it was an extremely close competition. It was made only slightly easier for us that the 10 finalists will also be featured in-game, allowing everyone to enjoy even more incredible art from our community. Each of the below winners will be receiving $50 of Hongmoon Coin, the exclusive community events costume “Kindred Soul”, and their art will also be showcased in Blade & Soul as a loading screen.
