Here it is, Screenshot of the Year to decide the best shot of 2020!

I gave a lot of thought to how to structure this, and in the end decided it would be best to have a single, very lively bracket. Go ahead and vote for your favorite of these high quality shots.

Russ - SotM 179

As the sun sets above the Northern Sea, Kell searches for answers. But will he find what he seeks before time runs out...

Matthew - SotM 180

I used a nice mix of custom and classic tiles to create this aesthetic.

Shane - SotM 181

The best of the best is here, and like all others of the annual finals, this one does not disappoint.  It's amazing for anybody to get this far.  It's especially amazing when one wins SotM more than once in the same year, so kudos to Joel there.  As for my favorite, mine goes to Matthew.  I remember that screen back when it was in SotW, and it continues to be impressive to the same degree.

Congratulations to everybody for making it this far! It's been a blast tracking each contest and witnessing the depth of creativity each of you displays.

Every once in a while, a shot is submitted that I feel is magical. This year, the magical shot is Matthew's. The details are gorgeous, the purple highlights in the flowers add a somewhat mystical aura, the shadows are executed subtly and flawlessly, and the screen feels larger than it really is.

Thanks for another great year!

I agree, Matthew's screen stands out most to me and this is where I voted

Also funny to see how well mountain top screens do  :teehee:

Russ has a lovely sunset. The rocks are different colors which is nice, and the red lava compliments it well.

 

Matthew close second, nice seeing how far you can you could take classic graphics.

Really cool collection of screenshots, definitely all worthy to be here! Matthew's is my favourite here. I remember watching him make this screen (and area) way back. Good times. :)

These are all fantastic and well deserving of making it to Screenshot of the Year, so congrats on that everyone! In the end, I will be voting for Matthew's screen! There's just something about it that immediately appeals greatly to me and I just love how the mix of tiles turns out so well together. The colors and the atmosphere of the shot are amazing, and the attention to detail is very high given the usage of a variation of the classic tileset. Fantastic job! :)
