‘Red Dead Redemption’ screenshot artist named Virtual Photographer of the Year

The American West as it is represented in Red Dead Redemption 2 never ceases to amaze. And the proof: a photo taken in the game has just won an award from the London Games Festival.

The event, which ended yesterday, Sunday, April 10, allowed players from all walks of life to submit a photo taken in their favorite game. Retouching was optional but allowed by the jury, composed of members of The Fourth Focus, a website specialized in virtual photography.

The competing pictures were exhibited during the week in Trafalgar Square, London.

In particular, it’s a certain Joe Meizies who takes the prize, with a photo – visible at the top of this article – representing the silhouette of the hero Arthur Morgan on horseback, facing a mesa-evoking Monument Valley.

A very simple photograph, which allows its owner to leave with a state-of-the-art Razer Blade laptop.

All the photographs that were submitted for the contest can be viewed here (Google Drive link). Which one is your favorite?
