One Special Game


Create your dream video game fan art poster based on one of three iconic games for a chance to win a range of superb video game related prizes.

The Sims (EA)
Fall Guys (Mediatonic)
Broken Sword (Revolution)

We’re inviting artists, students and fans to design and submit an A3 fan poster inspired by one of these titles. A panel of industry experts will choose a winner for each game, plus an overall winner. Pro-quality limited edition prints (25 of each winning design) will be sold with all profits going to SpecialEffect, and prints will also be available via print on demand service.

The winner will receive a prize bundle including a brand new OLED Switch, an Adobe Stock Annual license, a £100 voucher for games clothing company Insert Coin, a game bundle from Perp Games and a professional portfolio review. Runner-up prizes include £50 Insert Coin vouchers and Perp Game bundles.

It’s your chance to celebrate to your favourite title through your creativity – and support the life-changing work of a charity that’s transforming lives through the magic of video games.

Judging and Publicity

After the closing date of Friday 1 October, a panel of creative industry professionals and illustrators will judge the submissions and select up to three images for each game to be part of this year’s ‘One Special Game Collection’.

The judges are:

Anna Hollinrake (Mediatonic)
David Dino (Sumo Digital)
Jake Parrott (Ripstone)

One image will also be selected as the One Special Game Game Poster of the Year with the winner being awarded the prize bundle. Runners-up will also be announced.

After judging, limited edition prints of the winning images will be sold to raise funds for SpecialEffect.

We will also be hosting an on-line gallery/store with the images and reserve the right to use them for publicity purposes. However, the ultimate image rights remain with the artist and the game IP rights with the respective publishers.
