Camouflage is not just a pattern that disguises a tank's hull. It's a secret weapon. Allies are more likely to follow a vehicle wearing a stylish camouflage, while the enemy will think twice before firing at such beauty!
 
We'd like to invite you to participate in the Smashing Camo contest! Get locked and loaded with a graphic editor and create your own warpaint. Creators of the three best works will be awarded the following prizes: the FV217 Badger, the AMX 30 1er prototype, and the IS-3 Defender. The brightest and most original warpaint may later be added to the game!
 
Contest dates:
Works will be accepted from August 9 through August 22.
The contest results will be announced no later than September 6.
 
General provisions:
1. The rules establish the procedure for the Smashing Camo contest.
2. The organizer of the contest is the World of Tanks Blitz team.
3. The contest is held in all World of Tanks Blitz regions: CIS, Europe, North America, and Asia.
4. The jury of the contest reserves the right not to consider works that do not meet the requirements and rules of the contest nor communicate with participants and explain the reasons for refusal.
5. By participating in the contest, you agree to the contest rules.
6. The organizer reserves the right to make decisions on all issues related to the contest, including changing the rules and resolving disputes at its discretion.
 
Conditions and rules for participation in the contest:
1. The task of the contest participant is to create a striking and original camouflage and send it to blitz_camo@wargaming.net.
2. Any World of Tanks Blitz player can submit their work to the contest. Each participant may submit no more than one work.
3. Please note that contest works must not have any political connotations, provoke conflicts, promote prohibited substances, and violate moral, ethical, and legal norms, as well as the End User License Agreement. If the work violates the above requirements, it will be withdrawn from the contest.
4. The work must be created specifically for the contest during the contest period.
5. The contest camouflage must be unique and not like any warpaint that already exists in the game.
6. After the work has been sent to the contest email, exclusive rights to it are transferred to Wargaming.net in accordance with Section 10 Exclusive Rights of the End User License Agreement.
 
How to create camouflage
1. The size of the contest camouflage image must be 256x256 pixels. The work must be in the form of the attached image of a general view of the camouflage on the selected tank.
Example
 
2. The picture must be in the form of a tile—a small image of a certain size which is a fragment of a large picture.
The tile can be either transparent or semi-transparent.
The sides of the tile must fit together to form an image as shown below:
Example
 
3. To create a contest work, follow the instructions below:
Select one of the tank templates (E100, T110E5, IS-7) and download it in psd format.
Open the template with Adobe Photoshop.
Double-click the left mouse button on the layer “Tap to edit”:
Example
 
In the opened window, insert your own camouflage and stretch it according to the markup: 
Example
Press Ctrl + S (for Windows) or Cmd + S (for Mac) to save your camouflage. The image in the file should be automatically updated: 
Example
Send your work to the contest email blitz_camo@wargaming.net.
 
How to submit a work
Contest works must be sent to blitz_camo@wargaming.net.
The email subject must contain the [Camo] tag, as well as the player nickname and region (CIS, EU, NA, and ASIA). For example, [Camo] RibbleStripe — NA.
The file with the contest work must be attached to the email and named in accordance with the "Camo — player nickname — region" template. For example, Camo — RibbleStripe — NA.
The email must contain the following information: player nickname, server, and camouflage name (if any). 
The email must contain at least two screenshots demonstrating the process of creating camouflage at different stages.
 
Prizes
There will be three winners in each region (CIS, Europe, North America, and Asia). 
1st place: FV217 Badger and 60 days of Premium Account
2nd place: AMX 30 1er prototype and 45 days of Premium Account
3rd place: IS-3 Defender and 30 days of Premium Account 
The jury may also grant special rewards for works that are not among the three winners. 
Winners will receive their rewards within a week after the announcement of the results.
 
Determining the winners
The jury of the contest is the World of Tanks Blitz team.
Contest works will be judged on quality, the originality of the idea, and relevance to the game's theme.
 
Adding camouflage to the game
One or more of the brightest and most original warpaints may later appear in the game. However, if the warpaints selected for adding to the game are not in line with the visual style of World of Tanks Blitz, they may be partially changed.

Got no skills for this, but that's an excellent prize pool and content driver, gg WG and Ribble.

For the fun of it. Someone should design a Old bright yellow taxi cab camo for the new map.

I can create the camo in photoshop no problem using the E100 psd file but the smallest file size I could compress it down to is 21.4 megabytes.  I’ve used several different zip programs with the same results.  Any suggestions on how to create a file smaller than 20 megabytes?

WG half-answered the questions with unviable solutions and then closed the discussion thread on Discord (or at least prevented anybody else from posting).  At least they were kind enough to have their employees and/or mods call those people with viable questions "idiots" and/or "spammers," which was pretty cool of them.  Good ol' Russian Millennials...

 

I worked for several years in IT, and even I can't get the file compressed below their stated max attachment size of 20MB.

 

My sole solution was to send a .psd that includes only the 256x256 tile canvas and ditches the tank sample template.  No idea if it's been received or accepted, because (as WG stated) they don't intend to do that.

 

I'm not expecting a lot of entries because WG sucks at thinking things all the way through, it seems.
