We wanted our sponsors to enjoy their sponsorship plan even more, so during December 2018 we launched a new screenshot challenge: the sponsors battle! Only they could participate, but the rest of the community decided who won.
Bases were simple: we used the 2nd most voted theme for the current month event (in this case it was Love at first sight). Our sponsors submitted a vanilla picture to our Discord specific channel based on that theme. A poll was created to decide which was the best picture, and Sepheara was the winner!
Therefore, here’s our interview with this absolutely awesome sponsor. Enjoy!

About FFXIV Screenshots
When and why did you join the FFXIV Snaps Community?
I was with it from the start, I joined because I thought it would be fun to do and so far it has been! Edea asked and I was all in for it!
When did you first feel inspired by taking screenshots?
Looking at Saya and Mallers shots and I wanted to learn. I had messed with it but had no idea what I was doing lol!
What is your favorite thing about taking screenshots?
Just the different poses, and places and things you can capture!
What are your favorite places for screenshotting?
All over the place, I don’t have one that’s the top place.
Do you have any favorite screenshotters?
SOOOOO many to name but I have to say my mentor first, which is Saya, then Mallers, Shio, Malkovich, Nao, Edea, Kiruu, Meia, Rixas, Dante, Arrior and so many many more it would REALLY be hard to name them all. But there are so many to name this list would make one go cross-eyed if I named them all! (if you don’t see your name here sorry but most likely you’re a fave!)
Time to show us some of your work!
