Valve is looking for artists to create new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive weapon skins for a new line of Workshop cosmetics called Dreams & Nightmares, the company announced Wednesday.
They are hoping to entice creators to join and submit their own designs.
CS:GO Dreams and Nightmares Workshop Content Announced
The competition will see Valve select 10 original, Dream & Nightmare-themed looks. The creators of the winning designs will each receive $100,000 and the skins will be added to the game. That's a total of $1 million that Valve will be awarding for these designs.
Creators can submit as many times as they want, and designs can be made solo or as part of a team. More than one skin can win. Creators of these skins will still own the rights to their creations. Sending in an entry gives creators Valve a non-exclusive license to use it in CS:GO.
The final deadline for creators to submit their designs to the CS:GO Workshop is Oct. 21. Creators will need a Steam account that’s in good standing (it can't be limited in any way) and has made at least $5 in Steam purchases. Valve will contact the winners a month the Nov. 21 deadline.
