The biggest addition to this year's Fortnite Lantern Fest is the new Creative island. Given how much this mode has improved over the last year, it has been possible for Epic Games to scale the event massively.

The new island was designed by Illusion Creative and will be important for earning all the free cosmetic items. If you are one of the many players wanting to unlock them, you will have to complete the special challenges on the Creative island.


Here are the four rewards that can be unlocked for free:

  • Lantern Spray
  • Cameo Needs Loot Emoticon
  • Dog Eat Dog Spray
  • Twilight Mosaic Wrap

  • Flawless Fashion

The Lantern Fest Tour island is massive. The first part of the island will be revealed very soon, and Epic Games will add another part to it on April 6 at 10 AM Eastern Time.

You can also compete to earn the “Cameo Needs Loot” emoticon, which will be given to the 15 winners of the Lantography contest. To enter, you will have to take a screenshot of the in-game lanterns hanging around the Battle Royale island and share it using the #LantographyContest2023 hashtag. To be eligible for the rewards, contestants will have to follow the @fortniteME Twitter account.

The contest begins at 2 PM Eastern Time on March 23, and entries must be submitted by March 30. Furthermore, all participants should be at least 13 years of age.
