How to win
The winners for this contest will be based on both public votes and a panel of ROG judges. The top 20 wallpapers with the most votes on the Gleam campaign page by December 6th 00:01 (UTC+8) will be selected for a second round of ROG internal voting. The ROG team will rank the finalists from 1 to 20 based on the below criteria:
- 50% Originality
- 30% Artistic Quality
- 20% ROG Authenticity
Rankings from the public voting and the ROG team will then be combined, with each counting for 50% of a submission's final tally. In case of a tie, the ROG team will decide the winner based on the criteria above.
$5,000 USD worth of prizes
The top five entrants will win some of the most droolworthy ROG gear. An additional 10 x $50 Steam vouchers will be awarded to voters and participants via a lucky draw.
