The winner of the Project: Lighthouse Ace Combat 7 'Sol' Screenshot contest is Twitter user mobiusu14 (https://twitter.com/mobiusu14). Read this post for more information:
Thanks to everyone on social media that participated in this Ace Combat 7 screenshot contest. Judging on these photos was done by Ribbon-Blue who gathered all photos in one place and viewed them all individually without the names of the contestants listed. The winning entry is from mobiusu 14 (the image at the top of this post).
The reason for this entry winning is explained in the judge's own words:
"I selected mobiusu14 (https://twitter.com/mobiusu14) because the proportions of the photo work very well. The sun fills out more of the picture but does not complete overwhelm it. It instead gives it an almost washed out sort of look. There's a touch of action with the aircraft being shot down, everything is nicely centered and the Flanker has the added vapor over its fuselage for visual effect. There's a lot of eye catching things that the other pictures had, but to me this entry had them all in one picture. I did not factor in the Sol paint scheme in this decision. In fact, the paint scheme initially made me look past this entry at first. Only from looking at it without factoring in the paint scheme did I come to this conclusion. Congrats!"
That's not to say there were not many interesting entries in the Ace Combat 7 'Sol' Screenshot contest. Even Kazutoki Kono, brand franchise director of Ace Combat found this screenshot particularly enjoyable. Thanks to all that submitted single photos and entire sets of photos. A presentation of all photos sent in for the Sol Screenshot contest is being assembled. Even if you didn't win, we would like to present your screenshots. Many of those are really high quality.
We hope to see all the contestants in the Sol screenshot contest return for our second AC7 photo contest to be announced in just a few days.
