Check out two awesome contests recently run by community members and learn who won them.
The community makes a world of difference in RIFT. This is no different with the following two power house community members. Recently, they both ran contests for the community at large. Seshatar ran a contest for 4.2: Celestial Storm, which was a screenshot contest for Vostigar Peaks. DTC (Dimension Touring Company) ran a wonderful dimension contest with the theme of “cozy cottages”. Trion provided some of the prizes for both contests because we love to support the RIFT community.
Celestial Storm Contest Overview
The Celestial Storm contest was created by Trion Worlds Creator and RIFT aficionado Seshatar. It ran from July 19 – August, 13, 2017. During that time, players were encouraged to submit a virtual postcard, a summer fashion ensemble, or a short, 30-60 second video clip showcasing the newest overland zone, Vostigar Peaks.
Celestial Storm Contest Winners
There were a lot of great submissions but favorites had to be chosen. In fact, the winners were voted on by the community! Each category had a first, second, and third place winner. Prizes were a Spectral Chariot Mount and 30 days Patron time for first place, whereas second and third place were both awarded with 30 days Patron time.
