PUBG 3rd Anniversary Skin Contest

Welcome back Survivors!

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS has always strived to be a collaboration between players and developers. As we celebrate our third year, we want to take that collaboration to the next level with our first ever Community Skin Contest!

Got some killer PUBG skin ideas in your head? With the PUBG Community Skin Contest, your ideas come to life and best of all, have a chance to be added to the game! Submit your best designs for the M416, a custom hoodie or parachute. Each item category will have one winner, with the three winning designs getting turned into official PUBG skins!

To enter, simply download the template, create your design and then share it on your favorite social media platform with the hashtag #PUBGSkinContest and tag our official account on that platform, which is usually @PUBG. Our team will choose our favorites and upload the finalists to The winners will be chosen by community votes. So even if you don’t want to design a skin, you can still vote for your favorites.
