As part of the 20-year celebration of Lara Croft & Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics is calling all of YOU amazing fans to help collect (almost) all magazine covers Lara Croft has been featured on over the last 20 years! As they’ve found it to be almost impossible to track, they’d love your help! And here’s what you can do:
“Scan and upload the covers (covers only, no interiors) to Flickr which allows uncompressed image uploads. You can create a Flickr account for free if you don’t have one yet. Once you’ve uploaded them, send us a link to your dedicated album of Tomb Raider covers, and we’ll select those we don’t have in the collection yet and favorite them as a means to adding them to a single feed.”
You can see what they currently have here.
The goal is to get 1,000 covers!
A few notes:
These can be any magazine with images of Lara Croft or Tomb Raider on them related to the Tomb Raider games, comics, movies, or merchandise. Even covers with Angelina Jolie on them count, as long as they are billed as an interview about Tomb Raider. The only thing we won’t accept is adult magazines with ties to Tomb Raider.
The cover can be shared with another gaming character, as long as Lara takes up at least half of the image.
Please ensure the cover doesn’t have a mailing address on it. If it does, please Photoshop or obscure any personal details prior to scanning.
In the title of the image, please put the magazine name, issue number, and month/date of release. In the caption, please put the country it is from.
You can watermark the cover image if it is a rare image, but please put it somewhere small and inconspicuous so that it doesn’t detract from the overall design. We want this to feel like an art gallery.
You can post what you have in the comments of the official forum’s thread!
