It’s finally here. PC Gamers just got one of the best games of the PlayStation 4 generation ported to PC: Horizon Zero Dawn. If that alone wasn’t already its own reward, this photo contest comes with the prize of a lifetime.

As we’ve celebrated this awesome news and explored the untamed world of Horizon, we asked gamers to challenge themselves to find the most stunning shots using the in-game photo mode. If they managed to snap a photo that impressed gamers and developers alike, they could win a custom-built PC inspired by Horizon Zero Dawn. 

The funnest part of this challenge consisted of users diving into the action-packed world of Horizon Zero Dawn, battling the Machine beasts, proving their archery skills as Aloy, and engaging with the various tribes. As they evaded enemies left and right, they had to look for an opportunity to capture the perfect moment using the in-game photo mode. 

Here are the top 20 images that have been hand-picked as the absolute best, and you get to help choose who will be our lucky winner. Your friends, family, and even your pet have until September 20th to vote for your favorite image below  — it’s open to everyone!
