Beginning on 2nd April and running throughout the entirety of the month, Lantern Fest 2022 will feature a series of illuminated activities including Lantern Trials, bundles, a special cooking Emote, and more.

In an official blog post, Epic Games detailed the Lantern Fest specifications including a worldwide Fortography competition to win an exclusive Emoticon. Still early in Chapter 3 Season 2, it's safe to say Fortnite players are getting their fair share of content as Weekly and Resistance challenges are constantly released in bunches.

To enter the competition, players will need to take a picture featuring one (or many) of the lanterns and share it on Twitter using the #Lantography2022 hashtag. The submitters of Epic's favourite shots will have a chance to win the Cameo Needs Loot! Emoticon.

Do note that players will need to be following the Fortnite Twitter account as well as have their Tweets set to 'Public' status to be eligible for the rewards.
