Submissions for Player Ads for EVE Vegas 2017 are now open!
This year we will be once again bringing you a live stream from EVE Vegas on CCP’s Twitch channel. As with many of our broadcasts, we are offering you the chance to run an ad on stream during the event! If this is something that interests you, here are the details on what to do.
- All video material must be Eve related.

- Advert cannot include copyrighted audio or visuals.
- The advert must be suitable for all ages.
- Content must be respectable (no attack ads) and suitable for broadcast.
- Adverts must be in English, including all text.
- The quality of the advert must reflect positively on EVE itself; we will give comments and advice on improving the quality of the video until we can accept it.

- Videos should have a resolution of 1920x1080 with a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio; adverts will not be accepted in any other resolutions. Videos should not contain vertical black bars.

- You must include the source of your audio in your email to us, even if you are not required to credit the author.
Royalty Free audio
We don't want to take any chances of getting into trouble for using copyrighted material so we suggest you consider using Royalty free. There is a vast amount of Royalty Free audio online so it should be easy finding a suitable track to back up those pretty visuals.
If you are not sure on how Creative Commons works this image explains it nicely.
Creative Commons Simplified
Here are a few suggestions for music communities.
