    Introduction
    You thought we were done with competitions here on WSC? Oh little do you know us - while we have prizes, we will have competitions! And we've got another batch of beta keys burning a hole in our virtual pocket.

    This time around, we're hosting a caption contest - and in light of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, we're using that as our theme!

    Prizes
    The twenty (20) winners of this little competition will get one thing, and one thing only - a coveted WildStar Closed Beta Key direct from the presses at Carbine Studios. Any complaints? :)

    Your Image to Caption
    So, what's the image you have to caption? Well, that'd be this little number here - taken live from the Closed Beta...

    [​IMG]

    Timeframe and Entering
    To enter, all you will need to do is email your caption (not an edited image - just the caption) to competition@wildstar-central.com before midnight EST on 17th February 2014 (other timezones) - the entries will be judged by your friendly WSC staffers and the winners assigned one of the WildStar Closed Beta Keys.

    And yes you heard us right before - we're upping the ante and throwing out 20 keys, kindly donated by Carbine Studios. Plus this time, they've let us loose with the keys ourselves so we're taking on the heady task of picking the winners solo!

    Your entry email must include...

    - Your caption in a plain text format
    - Your WSC forum username
    - Your real name and postal address (for legal purposes)

    Please note that your entry will also be agreement to our competition terms and conditions (listed below). Plus, there's a few things not to do with your entries...

    - Do not send duplicate/multiple entries/emails
    - Do not send more than one email
    - Do not send images/attachments

    Any of the above will result in disqualification - please help keep the judging process simply and easy.

    A caption (as far as my understanding goes) would be a sentence or phrase of some sort beneath the picture which captures/describes/says something in relation to that picture.

    ZyphO, a caption is a (usually) short sentence or two that describe something going on in the picture. May be humorous or serious dependent on the context.

    Since this is Olympics themed, does it have to have WildStar references too?

    Are we allowed to submit multiple caption ideas in our single email? Or are we just allowed the one caption suggestion?
