As we all wait patiently for Cyberpunk 2077 to release next year, the company behind the game is hosting a photography contest to find examples of cyberpunk around you.

While Cyberpunk is the name of a franchise, it’s also an entire genre usually combining near future tech with a dingy, dystopian setting. There’s also, usually, a lot of neon lighting.

If you can find something matching that description in the real world, snap a picture of it and submit it to this contest to try and win something from the rather generous prize pool (see the bottom of this story).

The contest is open right now and will run until 16th November this year. Once submissions close all entries will be presented in a gallery for public voting.

Three main winners will be chosen by a jury, but ten more winners will be selected by the community votes.

Those three main winners all get a cash prize, the collector’s edition of the game, and a RTX 2080 card, among other things. The community winners get a bit less, but it’s still a lot of reward for simply submitting a picture.

More information about the contest, including submission form, can be found on the dedicated site.

We highly recommend combing through the FAQ and the full rules (available here in PDF form) to make sure you’re happy with the fine print and that your submission won’t be made invalid. Thankfully for those of us outside of the US and Europe, this contest is worldwide.

If you need some inspiration the picture above has been used in the marketing for this contest, so it’s a good place to start.
