The Evil Within 2 – “Appreciate the Art” Photography Contest

August 02, 2017

Welcome to the macabre and dangerous world of photography in The Evil Within 2. This “art” is courtesy of one of The Evil Within 2’s new villains, Stefano. You may remember him from the latest gameplay trailer that debuted earlier last month. Or perhaps you wandered through his gallery during E3 or in our feature here, appreciating the stranger side of landscapes and portraits.

Now we’re giving you a chance to show off your creative photography skills (albeit much less violent and graphic than Stefano’s) in our “Appreciate the Art” contest. Using whatever camera available, we’re challenging you to submit your best photographs inspired by The Evil Within 2. With that, a word of caution… while it may seem like the most likely muse, your photographs cannot contain any graphic or violent material. Here’s one direct from Stefano if you need a hand (or teeth?).

From today until August 20, you can smile for us and submit your photo using your social media platform of choice or by uploading it to our gallery here. If you’re using social media, be sure to use #AppreciateTheArt in your post so we can find your entry.

One grand prize winner will receive a custom The Evil Within 2 PlayStation 4 Pro or Xbox One S of their choice as well as a copy of the game. Four runner ups will receive a copy of the game for the platform of their choice.

Please read our official contest rules before you enter, and don’t forget to smile!



We saw a lot of great results pour in from across the darkest depths of the internet (ok, not that dark…), but of those only five could be winners. Take a look at the gallery below to see the top picks. All of the entries were definitely worthy of Stefano’s praise. Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you to everyone who participated and appreciates art! (Click all images for the full-sized versions.)
