Square Enix Announces Life is Strange-Inspired “Everyday Heroes” Scholarship Photo Contest
Last year, Square Enix and DONTNOD Entertainment’s episodic title Life is Strange drew great critical praise and, in particular, was admired for its more sensitive themes touching bullying and other issues, with the latest effort from Square Enix and DONTNOD being a new campaign to promote the “Everyday Heroes” in our lives.
A new page of the Life is Strange website was released called the “Everyday Heroes” Scholarship Fund 2016, a new campaign being done by Square Enix and DONTNOD for entrants to “submit your photos of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”
Inspired by the “Everyday Heroes” photo gallery shown in the game, Square Enix and DONTNOD’s contest allows users to submit photos on the contest’s website to be featured in a photo gallery to “celebrate the unsung champions in your life,” and “that truly captures their heroism.”
Various photos submitted will be featured in a photo gallery on the page, with the top three finalists having their photos printed, framed, and signed by the staff of DONTNOD Entertainment and featured throughout the social media channels of Square Enix: the grand prize winner for the contest will receive a $10,000 scholarship prize.
Submissions for the “Everyday Heroes” Contest are running now through February 16th, 2016 – for more information on the contest, you can click here for the full details of the contest and to submit a photo and explanation of who your “everyday hero” is, and why.
Life is Strange is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
