CS:GO Announces Winners of Dreams & Nightmares Art Contest, All Skins Revealed
Here are all the 17 winning CS:GO weapon skins.
Valve had announced the Dreams & Nightmares Workshop Art Contest earlier this year, on 22nd July 2021, for all the CS:GO community artists. The contest originally offered a total prize of $1,000,000 USD which would have been split between 10 winning entries. However, the developer has ended up shortlisting 17 submissions out of more than 15,000 entries, increasing the total prize money to $1.7 Million USD.
The submission deadline for the contest was 21st October 2021, giving all the creators a total of 91 days to come up with an idea and execute it. Today on 22nd November (IST) the winners have been announced, and each of them shall be receiving $100,000 USD in prize money.
Valve will continue to work with the artists over the coming weeks before rolling out the weapon skins as part of the Dreams & Nightmares CS:GO Weapon Case.
