GM Week - EVE Vegas T-Shirt Design Contest!

If you'd like to discuss this devblog, feel free to head on over to the comments thread on the official EVE Online forums.

Vegas cometh, and with it comes the EVE Store too!

We’ll have more information on EVE Vegas 2019 as we draw closer to the event, but for now we want to talk more about the next iteration of the EVE Vegas T-Shirt Design Contest.

This year’s event is shaping up to be pretty epic, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing some of the T-shirt designs that have come out of the community in past contests. Some of my personal favourites are from the 2017 contest, which you can find the results of here. (I’m still rocking my EVEolution shirt!)

We’re happy to announce that we’re running the contest again this year, where our pilots can once again submit their own t-shirt designs to be printed and sold in the store at EVE Vegas.

For all that work of course, there’ll be rewards – not to mention the New Eden wide fame of having the best designs worn by capsuleers across the cluster.

So, What Are We Looking For This Time Around?

We’ve seen some incredible anti-Triglavian propaganda floating around since the launch of EVE Online: Invasion, and we’d love to see what the community can do when the task is to put these designs onto a kick-ass t-shirt.

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, spurring them on to kick some Triglavian ass.

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 downtime on 2019/09/06 for it to be valid.

Choosing The Winners!

A panel of CCP employees, including staff from the EVE Online Development team, Community Team, and our Creative Services Team will choose the three best designs.

These winners will receive a selection of glorious prizes.
