We are happy to partner with video creator JohnDrees to sponsor a capsuleer video contest. The purpose of this is to inspire, mentor, and reward both aspiring and veterans who add to the amazing video content of  New Eden.

I have always been in awe of the videos that capsuleers have produced for our wider community. It is my hope that this contest might inspire new videos that will become another chapter of our collective New Eden adventure.

Anyone who wants to participate should watch the video (above) from JohnDrees and join our ingame channel here ( and the in-game channel “New Eden Campfire”. Once in the channel, let us know your want to participate in the contest and we will put you in a dedicated channel for the contestants. You can also email me at [email protected] or contact either Johann Landier or JohnDrees in game.

The format will be pretty straight forward. Contestants will have until August 23rd to get their initial entry into Eve News 24. Contestants videos will be judged by a panel and given feedback. The panel will consist of members of EN24 staff, guest judges, and video creators. After this, there will be a series of ’rounds’ were the contestants adjust or improve their entry based on feedback (if you have ever watched America’s or Britain’s Got Talent then you will get it). As the rounds progress a winner will emerge based on votes from the judges. The final round will also include a vote from the eve community via a public poll.

Prizes include 20 billion in ISK with 10 billion going to the first place winner. There will also be out of game prizes (a Eve Themed Trophy — depending on shipping costs) and other in game prizes (ships and modules).

We at Eve News 24 look forward to seeing what you all can come up with. We are really hopeful that those of you  who are new to video making will give it a shot and see what you can come up with!
