In an effort to spread the word about LOTRO, Turbine has announced a new contest starting as of today. It is a screenshot contest that asks for people to travel to different regions throughout the game, take a screenshot, upload it to the site, and create a postcard out of it.
Doing so will allow you a chance to win 1500 Turbine Points for each of the fourteen locations. The locations will be revealed over time from now until November 29th; although hints of them might be dropped in the Forums ahead of time.
There are also some contingencies upon entering. First, you must have a Facebook account and be willing to grant the app permissions to some of your account information (as is the way with most Facebook apps). You must then be willing to fill out a small registration form including your name, email, country, and birthdate. In addition to all this you must also share each finished postcard that you create via the app to Twitter or Facebook.
Clearly this is a social media campaign so if you do not belong to either one of those social media outlets, (or if you’re unwilling to volunteer all this information for marketing purposes) then this is not something you will be able to participate in. However, Celestrata hinted that there may be some more more (less invasive) contests coming soon.
