Winners announced for Rift: Concept Contest!

RIFT Concept Art Contest Feature Image

Trion have announced the winners of the Rift: Concept Weapons and Cloaks! Contest that was held between 2nd April to 23rd April 2014.

Update 05.06.14 – youssef 2000’s entry has been removed and the 3rd Place and Runner Up entries have been shifted to 2nd Place and 3rd Place. No new Runner Up.Update 05.02.14 – Looks like the submission by the 2nd Place winner for the Swords Category youssef 2000 is in fact stolen artwork from Artist Wen-M. Even if the submission is by Wen-M, the rules state that old works are not allowed. As such this submission will likely be removed with prize forfeited.

There hasn’t been an official word about this from Trion although we’ll probably hear back from them in the next 24hrs about this. Whether a new 2nd Place winner is announced (or the current standings shifted up with a new Runner Up) is unknown at this stage.

Congratulations to the following players:

    some people have some real talent for this kind of stuff, good job on all them. only problem i have, is that the swords section seems like the winners were 2 handed swords. atleast from the looks of it. i hope they will make them 1 handers as well.

      The contest was about 2-handed Swords, 2-handed Staves and Cloaks. Perhaps Trion will do some more Concept Art Contests in the future and we may see 1-handed Swords, Daggers, 2-handed Hammers, Maces, Totems, Wands, Bows, Guns and Shields.
