This was due to general lack of interest in the contest.
Thanks to all that participated in the 10+ years it was active.

Think you've got a good sense of humor? Think you've got what it takes to write funny cartoons? Well, we can't help you with that, but we can help you hone your skills in captions. Enter our "Camera Captioning Contest".

What's our Camera Contest? Over our history, we've captured many silly pictures. People mugging for the camera, or other goofiness at 3D Realms HQ. What we've decided to do is to make a contest out of some of the pictures. Send us your best caption for the picture, and the one we decide is the funniest will win a coupon that's good towards the purchase of any of our games. Here's the rules for the contest:
  • Think of a caption for this picture, and email it to us at camera@3drealms.com.
  • ONLY submit captions for this picture.
  • Please don't send the picture with the text. We know what the picture looks like. :)
  • When submitting an entry, please tell us the contest dates for the picture or the contest number.
  • Please include your full name and address with your entry (in case you win). If you don't send in your info, we have no way to get your prize to you. Please keep in mind that once the winner is picked, the emails for each contest are deleted, and not kept, so they're not put on any list or something dumb like that.
  • You can send as many entries for a picture as you want, although if you're going to send multiple entries, try and include them all in a single email.
  • We will post the winning entry, who submitted it, as well as some of the runners up shortly afterwards.
  • You can win more than one contest, so if you've won before, you can continue to enter for future contests.
  • This is not a US only contest, anyone can enter.

What do you win if you're picked as having the winning entry? Each winner will have a coupon for $35 off any product ordered directly from us mailed to them shortly after their entry is picked as the winner (more details about the coupon will come in a letter that comes with the coupon).

Geoff Keighley of Gameslice did a review of our Camera Captioning Contest, and this is what he had to say about it:

For a long time Iíve been admiring 3D Realmsí Camera Caption contest on their site. Basically, they take images from around the office and ask fans to contribute their favorite witty caption to accompany the photo. Some of the entries are absolutely hilarious.
