Who will be #GamerOfTheMonth?


As you know, it is still a little while until gamescom 2016. To shorten your wait we created a new challenge for you. According to the hashtag #GamerOfTheMonth we search for the best pics on a certain topic every month.

This can be extraordinary gamers, unusual Cosplays or the most enthusiastic gamescom visitors – we are looking for your very own gamer stories. Every month we will introduce a task to you on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and challenge your creativity! Then it is your turn: Capture your fancy gaming equipment, your favourite gaming location or what connects you with gamescom in a picture. Send us your pictures on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #GamerOfTheMonth.

A jury will evaluate your pictures and choose the “Gamer Of The Month”. We will not only celebrate you as the #GamerOfTheMonth on our social media channels, but also reward you with something very special: Oskar Pannier – the official illustrator of Gronkh and inventor of Shakes & Fidget – will draw an individual portrait of each #GamerOfTheMonth in his very own comic style.

Our challenge in April:

Summer, sunshine, holidays – you were at the beach, camping, in a luxury hotel or sightseeing, and you always took your favourite game with you? What was the most unusual place, where you played?

Send us your picture via direct message, as a comment underneath the equivalent post or as a tweet with the hashtag #GamerOfTheMonth on our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram channel. Have fun!
