New to this year's Summer E Games is the Caption Contest, where we'll give you four photos and let you decide if they could use slight modification and a caption to go along with them. From there, hilarity ensues and the community picks their favorite. Then, of course, we give out badges.

The Rules

  • You must be a registered member of The Escapist. You can sign up for your free account by clicking here, or Login with Facebook.
  • Choose up to four of the images found below to add a caption to
  • While you are welcome to change the photo around a bit, this is a CAPTION contest. Click here to visit the photoshop contest
  • Your final art must be no bigger than 640x640
  • The caption/text must be ON the picture you are submitting
  • All entries must be submitted in jpg, jpeg, gif formats
  • You are allowed 1 entry PER PICTURE (totaling 4)
  • Email all submissions to [email protected] WITH your Escapist username. Failure to include your username negates your entry

The deadline for this contest is Tuesday, August 24th at 11:59PM EDT. The top caption ideas will be chosen and posted for voting.

The Prize

Gold, Silver or Bronze and perhaps even an Honorable Mention or two! However, unlike other events, this event has 4 separate entries for winning! So, if you are REALLY GOOD (or really lucky), you have the chance of winning 4 gold badges in one event.

A Special Thank You

This idea is great and has been a topic of conversation around our office as well as the community, so we would like to thank Portal Maniac for bringing it to our attention!

Permanent Banning

If you are found cheating in any way, shape or form, you will be permanently banned from all Themis Media properties and have all previous medals, badges and titles stripped.
