Calling All EVE Online Designers: EVE Online T-Shirt Design Contest

As we head toward what is already shaping up to be the largest EVE Vegas ever, we want to allow you to have a direct and creative impact on what products will be offered at EVE Vegas and in the EVE Merchandise Store.

We’re happy to announce that we’re now opening a contest for pilots to submit their own T-shirt designs to be printed and sold in the store and at EVE Vegas.

Of course, there are prizes on offer – not to mention fame, (or infamy depending on the nature of your design) - for whoever can create the best designs.

What are we looking for?

Designs should be two colors, within a 12” x 12” area, and should consist of imagery that you think will resonate with fellow capsuleers and capture their imagination.

Please bear in mind that for this competition you can use EVE’s intellectual property in your designs. Also remember that you'll need to submit your design before July 1st in order for it to be valid.

How will we choose winners?

A panel of CCP employees, including staff from the EVE Online Development team, Community team and our Art team will choose the three best designs. These winners will receive a selection of prizes. 

The Prizes:

First Prize:

  • Your T-Shirt design sold at EVE Vegas and in the EVE Merchandise Store
  • Credit on back of T-shirt with your character name
  • $100 store credit at the EVE Merchandise Store
  • Signed Limited Edition of “Frigates of EVE Online: The Cross Sections”
  • 6000 PLEX
