Now that the screenshot competition has ended, here's the chance for everyone to post their vistas. If you're from one of the countries that couldn't enter or (like me) made too many screenshots of each planet, here's your opportunity to post your links.
EDIT: Since others already did - add your entries too if you're happy to.

Reminder only screenshots from planets on the list which were, so these planets only please:
  • Hutta
  • Korriban
  • Ord Mantell
  • Tython
  • Tatooine
  • Makeb
  • Yavin 4
  • Zakuul
  • Ossus
  • Mek-Sha

Here are some of mine that I didn't enter:

This absorbed many hours of my days/nights. In the end, the hardest part was deciding on which one I would submit for the competition. Posting only the ones I submitted below.

I must add, that most of the bodies of water look amazing on the ultra graphics setting. Even if you do not play with that setting on, everyone should venture out and explore in ultra setting from time to time.

I absolutely love looking at others' pictures, and enjoying trying to see if I can guess where on the planet each was taken! Lots of fun, and thank you all for sharing!

Since the deadline has passed, I'm comfortable sharing my submissions. Everyone in my family has an active account, so all three of us submitted images for all planets except Mek-Sha. We simply ran out of time, as we didn't find out about the contest until a couple of days ago.

Here are ours:

I think you and I have a similar eye for screenshots Sarova! I noticed a few familiar locations from your shots. Although I shouldn't be surprised, I already knew you had good taste in romance options.

I'll start with some "runner-up" screenshots that didn't quite make the cut for my final submissions. I'm probably down to share my actual submissions too (since deadline to submit has passed), but I figured I'd hold off just a bit longer and see what the general consensus is first.

...while I will not be able to post my screens (just wayyy too busy with zilliion things) I was on the same bus....Like making tonnes of screens only to realize that you can submit only one per planet.

And there were SO many that would qualify!

Funny enough I can see my ideas were not that much different than other players, so at the end i have submitted those that were a little bit "odd" or "away from the mainstream" so to say...

Regardless, i did not have enough time to get back on the Tatooine baloon and wait for the "perrect shot" - as i saw in one of the above posts.

The only one I struggled with was mek-Sha - too small for having a good picture, there was alwasy something "in the way" and if ithere wasn't, the look was just MEH -SHA.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

I wonder how they'll sort out the winners of the pics that are nearly identical, if they pick those in any category.
What's up with all those rampage achievements?

From the official rules:
“In the event that several people submit the same, or very similar, Entries, the Entry submitted first will be selected as the winner.”

For my final selection I tried to take into consideration what others might submit to help my entry better stand out.

All the screenshots are fantastic! Thanks for adding them. It's interesting that so many of us went for the same vista for some of our shots.
Since the deadline is well and truly gone, here are the ones I entered:

Hutta
Fathra's Palace - I really like the green tint here. Waiting for a shot without players in took a while.

Korriban
Statues I went for this one in the Lower Wilds over the one at the Valley of the Dark Lords overlook, as I saw so many people there looking out on it for their screenshot.

Ord Mantell
Northern Talloran Coast - the coasts on Ord Mantell are easily overlooked as we're so busy killing mobs. I loved this one due to the islands.

Tython
Jedi Temple - lots of people went for this. Again waiting for no players to be in the shot took a while.

Tatooine
Balloon over the Dune - waiting for the balloon, the balloon de-spawning, riding the balloon for ages. I tried to get the shot Karameck got of the Oasis, but failed miserably, so it came down to this. My favourite is the one I posted of the balloon in silhouette but I didn't use that as my entry because the balloon looked a bit squashed.

Makeb
Toborro's Estate - I went for this one because I loved the clouds in background.

Yavin 4
Yavin 4 Training Grounds viewed from the World Boss's balcony - played dodge the boss for a while until I remembered I have stealth characters
And then I had to use a character that could do archaeology and slicing as mats kept getting in the way of my good vista shot!

Zakuul
Undercity Transport Station - I decided on this one as I didn't think anyone else would consider it as it's so ordinary in the life of Star Wars - people catching trains like us in real life.

Ossus
Jedi Library Grounds - I really wanted the shot of this statue from the sea. There are two of them opposite each other, however I kept getting EXHAUSTION ZONE on the first one (near to farms I think) trying to get it from far enough out. This is the one on the opposite side of the sea, and was less exhaustion zoney however, this was the furthest I could get to take the screenshot before exhaustion doom.

Mek-Sha
The Scrap Pit - I was originally going to submit the view on Huttbreaker's Compound, however I thought lots of people might go for that as it's bright and colourful. I settled on the Scrap Pit because it shows the darker side of Mek-Sha both figuratively and literally. The Brothers are just terrible after all.

Same here, though I think the best vistas are known by so many people already, so there are probably going to be a lot of similar entries. I was hoping people wouldn't have the same "balloon patience" as me for Tatooine - I was wrong!
