We Want Your Screenshots!

Tamriel is a continent of idyllic countrysides, bustling cities, mysterious dungeons, and fascinating personalities. For the next years in TIL’s life, we want to focus on illustrating all that Elder Scrolls has to offer, and for that we need your help!

Submit your screenshots below for a chance to have your photography accompany our articles, and to win a copy of the deluxe edition Prima guide to Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, signed by the developers at Zenimax Online!

The prizes will be drawn at random on October 15th. They are:

  • One honorable mention winner will receive one set of TES character pins.
  • One grand prize winner will receive a copy of the deluxe edition Prima guide to Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset, signed by the developers at Zenimax Online, as well as one set of TES character pins.


The rules:

  • The screenshots submitted must be yours, but they do not have to be created exclusively for this contest.
  • Please post as many screenshots as you want, but more screenshots do not equal more chances to win.
  • For TESIII: Morrowind and later titles, screenshots must be free of UI elements (check out this guide from UESP for how to turn them off)
  • Screenshots must not be heavily modded or edited - they should be representative of what one can experience directly in the base game.
  • Please let us know what the screenshot depicts, as well as the name you wish to be credited as if we choose to use it!
  • NOTE: By entering this contest, you grant the Imperial Library the perpetual, nonexclusive right to use your screenshots on our website and social media. You will be credited by the name given above. 


Not sure how to get us your screenshots? You can upload them at a host like imgur, tumblr, dropbox, or google drive and then provide the links below. Alternatively, you can also email them to us at

Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Is there a theme or are we just taking cool screenshots? Like, are there lore categories or anything?

Anything is fine! If you'd like a theme, you can always pick an article on the site (like a game storyline, or one of the religion pages, etc.) and try to take screenshots that could be used to illustrate it.

All of these images come from The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard. Just credit as Dillonn241.

I have looooots of screenshots from TESIII to TESO, and tried to choose the best all the time... so finally decided to post three. One form The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, one - from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and one - from The Elder Scrolls Online.

Just a little torchbug against the aurora. Reminded me of Firefly (you can’t take the sky from me), so I snapped it.

A thought-provoking look at Lorkhan's remains from the Isle of Artaeum. Let's call it "Endeavor".
