Square Enix Hosts Real Everyday Heroes Photography Competition

Those of you who’ve played Square Enix and DONTNOD’s episodic adventure game, Life is Strange, will likely find the term “Everyday Heroes” familiar, and that’s because in the game, Max Caulfield, the protagonist in the story, is constantly being reminded to enter her photograph into the competition. Now, Square Enix is holding their own Everyday Heroes competition with a $10,000 scholarship at stake.

Although the Everyday Heroes competition doesn’t play a huge part of the story in Life is Strange, it’s a key part of the game as Max is often being reminded that she hasn’t handed in her entry. In the game, the winner of the competition gets their photo displayed in an art gallery in San Francisco, which for any budding photographer, is a fantastic opportunity.

With that in mind, Square Enix has decided to create their own Everyday Heroes competition. However, you won’t win a trip to San Francisco, instead you’ll win a creative scholarship fund of $10,000. The competition is aimed at students and amateur photographers, and is accepting entries today until Feb 16.

The idea around the Everyday Heroes competition is similar to that in the game, to capture how normal people make the world a better place.

As well as the $10,000 fund, the top 3 finalists will also have their photos shared across Square Enix social channels and have their images printed, framed, and signed by DONTNOD.
