Valve Compo: Post Your Apocalypse

Lookee here. We've got a couple of hardback copies of Valve's book, Half-Life 2: Raising The Bar, signed by Valve top-dog Gabe Newell. Would you like one?

In order to receive one of these rather weighty tomes, we want to see your own local City 17. Let us explain...

Everyone lives near at least one building, or one patch of ground, that looks like the haunted remains of an apocalyptic attack. We want a photograph of the most derelict, wartorn, or ravaged-by-age locale near you. The two best, as judged by our highly trained eyes, will receive a signed book.

Email your entries to here. Keep photos under 200k, or you'll break our email accounts. Or if you want to go high-res, upload it somewhere and email us the link. Closing date is October 10th. Get snapping.

(Rules: One photo per person - multiple entries will be ignored. The photo must be your own work - we have seen every photograph on the internet, and will know if you're cheating. Real photos, no Photoshops. Don't change the competition entry email subject line, even if you think it's to something that will make us laugh until we're sick. RPS's decision is not only right, but final. We reserve the right to publish any photographs sent to us. If we ever see the books appear on eBay, we'll post you our poo every day for the rest of your life)
