Valve has incorporated much of the Community-made skins into their official skin releases. In fact, it has been a common practice to do so in the early days of CS:GO. The vast CS:GO community was extremely talented as well as dedicated and Valve officially recognizing and releasing these skins is a welcomed nod to the creator’s efforts.
CS:GO Community skins that made it into the game
There are several community-made skins that received a lot of love from the rest of the community and up to Valve’s standards which have been included in the game. Here are just a few notable examples:
CS:GO Dreams and Nightmares Contest
For the upcoming “Dreams & Nightmares” case, Valve is offering prizes for 10 selected skin finishes in this theme. An Artist stands to win a prize of $100,000 USD if a designed skin is chosen to be included in the case. Not only that, if multiple skins of the same artist get selected, he will be eligible for multiple prizes respectively. To enter, the artist must submit a fully complete weapon finish and not just digital art or concepts.
