We really happy to be announcing today the winners to Polycount's first ever all-2D contest: Unreal Tournament Master Challenge: Concept Art. As a reminder, the winners of this contest have won the following prizes:
All entries that Epic chooses as a winner will receive a round of feedback from Chris Perna, Art Director at Epic Games. You will then have the opportunity to produce a few more concepts to fully flesh out your vision for the theme or level.
All entries that Epic Games accepts for use will receive official credit as a ‘Concept Artist’ on the new Unreal Tournament game.
Any entry submitted to the contest has a chance to be featured in an upcoming Unreal Tournament art book to be published by Epic. Each artist who had a winning entry will have an opportunity to write about their entry. As well, they will receive a hard copy of the book signed by the team at Epic.
All winning entries will receive a full size Greentooth Trophy

Gooba's Old Space
Citlaet's Derelict Facility / Water Platform
Lefaust's Mid-Tech Industrial
The Polycount Choice award was chosen by the owners of Polycount: Drew, Seth, and myself (Adam) under the criteria of what we felt spoke the best to Unreal Tournament and where we think the franchise is going, based on Epic's showing of the game so far. It has that clean, clinical futurism look to it while still maintaining large forms that will work really well in arena combat. Based on that, we're giving the Polycount Choice award to the same concept that won the top spot from Epic:
Gooba's Old Space -- Congratulations!!!
