Red Bull Capture Point game photography returns for 2022

Video games are a visual medium like no other, transporting us to worlds we could barely imagine in our wildest dreams. Whether you’re putting the pedal to the metal in the world’s most powerful sports car or exploring the verdant lands of post-apocalyptic America, the vibrant visuals of the latest games are breathtaking to behold.

Using Photo Modes, fans have found ways to capture these worlds with virtual photography. Over the years, these virtual photographers have formed huge online communities, sharing their creativity through social media while developing their skills.

After the success of last year’s competition, Red Bull Capture Point is back, and this time invites PlayStation® gamers around the world to show off their incredible skills on the world stage. We’re giving virtual photographers the chance to see their work come to life in an actual exhibition in New York and win amazing prizes.

What is Red Bull Capture Point?

Red Bull Capture Point is an in-game content capture contest that challenges players to take visually stunning screenshots using photo modes. This year’s competition will focus on two PlayStation® exclusives – Horizon: Forbidden West™ and Gran Turismo® 7, both launching this year.

Entrants will have the chance to win an incredible Red Bull prize pack including a PlayStation®5 console, along with incredible peripherals.

One entrant who wins the Best in Show award from each of the nine competing countries will have their shots featured in a gallery in New York, where they can attend a Best in Show gallery exhibition. Winners will also be able to take advantage of workshops with renowned photographers who will help them take their skills to the next level.

The best photos will also be displayed in a virtual gallery, which fans around the world can explore from the comfort of their own homes.

Photographers will be able to submit their shots in four categories, each representing a different theme. Each category will be open for a two-week period and will have its own unique requirements to fulfill. Category requirements will be presented a few days before each entry period and will be posted on social media and the contest website.

Entrants can submit their entries via Twitter directly from their PlayStation® console using the appropriate country hashtag and compete in a number of categories, and winners will be selected by a panel of expert judges convened by Red Bull. Judges will categorize submissions using criteria that emphasize interpretation of theme, technical execution and uniqueness of concept.

Several important personalities of the scene including Kate Reed (@kaytanaaUnited States), Petri Levälahti (@BerduuSweden) and senior judge Mik Bromely (@TheFourthFocusUS) will manually select the best candidates.

Red Bull Capture Point is open to aspiring photographers from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden, Argentina and Chile.
