Win your place in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Kind of...

Get your face painted into official Assassins artwork

Ubisoft is offering one lucky GamesRadar reader the chance to appear in a massive painting, which is being created to celebrate the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, later in 2013. We're offering you the chance to have your face painted onto a crew member sailing on one of the two massive ships featured in the artwork.

The massive 2.4m x 4.5m oil painting is being created by the French National School of Art, and it will show a naval battle in the context of the latest Assassin's Creed game. The project is called: Defy History. Want to get your face in a genuine piece of art and become a part of history? Here's how you enter:

- Log in to your GamesRadar account.

- Send a direct message to GamesRadarAndyHartup. Use 'Assassin Art' as your subject.

- We'll draw a winner on Wednesday and notify them via direct message. Be aware: the winner will need to submit a number of photographs for the French artists to translate to paint.

Note: This competition is open to UK readers only.


Andy has been writing about games since 1999, when he nagged the Editors of his University newspaper so much they let him start a brand-new video games section. After that he worked in print mags for over 10 years before switching to the murky world of online editing, when he became Executive Editor on GamesRadar. Now he uses his ill-gotten power and influence to write endless, beard-stroking think-pieces on Destiny and Game of Thrones. Spoil the latest episode of the show, and he will cut you.
