Do you have a beautiful city you'd like to share? We are on the lookout for some awe-inspiring, innovative or creative city pics.

Submit an "e-Pic" of your Empire for a chance at grabbing the title of the e-Pic Empire contest!

And we're giving 1000 diamonds to the winner every month.

How to submit your city

It's easy to submit your city picture. Simply take a screenshot of your city (it has to be your city!), upload it (Imgur is a pretty good, free, upload site), and then add a link to your picture in a reply below.

To submit your entry, you will need a forum account. If you don't already have one, you can register to the forums quickly and easily here.

On the 1st of every month the Community Manager will go through all your entries and choose 1 winner, who will then be awarded 1000 diamonds!

All winners will be added onto the Epic Empires Winners Thread each month so you can view their amazing work.

We look forward to seeing your beautiful Empires!


Rules
  • 1 entry is permitted per month.
  • The city must belong to the person posting it.
  • Images must be no larger than 1024 x 768 and under 500kb.
  • Those adding more than one image, the first entry will count only.

Just a question, please: Is the title of this competition Innogames's way of clarifying that the "empires" we're supposed to be "forging" are simply our cities, rather than guilds, alliances, GvG territories or whatever else some players have been imagining in various threads?

Well, it is a forge your own empire game, but this was a little something that we thought up here as the old competition was there for quite some time so we decided to post a new one.

We also welcome any ideas for future competitions too :)

It doesn't necessarily have to be an image of your whole city... I play on a laptop too and can only see about a quarter of my city at a time - this has an advantage in that you can pick the prettiest, or tidiest part ;)

I can't see anymore than a small portion of my city at any one time...so I do a screen capture and save it....scroll and redo a capture etc...and then eventually edit them and stitch them all together. It's a long process but it's the only way I know of getting a full picture. There are some downloadable programs that allow for a scrolling capture...but I've yet to find one that works.

In reply to Amy's response..."Picking the prettiest or tidest part"...is a bit of a cop out...and when the reward of 1,000 diamonds is the prize...it ought to be awarded to the city as a whole and not just an edited part that looks good. We can all edit sections of our cities that look good. This contest should be based on complete cities to justify the reward.

if you zoom out your browser in settings, you can then get a shot of your city all in one go if you want to.

Point taken ophion - thanks for the tip as to how to make a picture of your whole city too :)

if you have an ipad, you seem to be able to condense your city to fit a lot more in a screenshot. Alternatively a bigger screen works well too.

Good question ! On mine I use chrome so it is top right on this browser to hit the settings, then zoom. Though depending which browser you are using it could elsewhere on the screen. Normally it is at the top left or right of the browser page though.
