If you'd like to discuss this dev blog or the contest, you can head on over to this thread on the EVE Online forums!

The t-shirt design contest that we held prior to Vegas was incredibly well received, with over 150 designs submitted.

As we head toward what is already shaping up to be one of the largest EVE Fanfest ever, we want to host another competition and allow you, the EVE Community, to have a direct and creative impact on what products will be offered in the EVE Fanfest Merchandise store, and in the EVE Merchandise Store online in future too.

We’re happy to announce that we’re now opening a contest for pilots to submit their own mouse mat designs to be printed and sold in the EVE Merchandise Store.

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

What are we looking for?

Designs should be 7.75"x8.25" (300 Pixels Per Inch @ 100% Size) with all critical details within 7.5"x8.0". 1 color up to full color, .PSD or .AI files.

The design should consist of imagery that you think will resonate with our community of capsuleers and capture their imagination.

Please bear in mind that for this competition, you can use EVE’s intellectual property in your designs.

The mouse mat itself

The mouse mat has a polyester fabric surface with a natural open cell rubber backing. The inks that print on the mouse mat don’t do metallic or show a ton of brightness.

How do I enter?

All submissions should be sent to [email protected] with “EVE Online mouse mat design” as the subject. The contests runs from February 1st through to February 25th.

How will we choose winners?

A panel of CCP employees, including members from the EVE Online Development team, Community Team and Team TriLambda (our Art team) will then select the three best designs, which will win a selection of prizes. Winners will be announced via community news item on 1 March.

The Prizes:

First Prize:

  • Your mouse mat design sold at EVE Fanfest and in the EVE Merchandise Store.
  • A copy of the mouse mat (shipping included).
  • $100 store credit at the EVE Merchandise Store.
  • Signed Limited Edition of “The Art of New Eden”.
  • 6000 PLEX.

Second Prize:

  • $50 store credit at the EVE Merchandise Store.
  • Signed Limited Edition of “The Art of New Eden”.
  • 3000 PLEX.

Third Prize:

  • $50 store credit at the EVE Merchandise Store.
  • 1500 PLEX.
  • Signed edition of “The Art of New Eden”.

  3. I want to express appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this problem. Right after browsing through the online world and obtaining opinions which were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the problems you have resolved by means of your good write-up is a critical case, and the ones that would have badly damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your site. Your good capability and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a subject like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and effective guide.

  26. I have realized that over the course of developing a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate transaction, a commission rate is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers don’t “save” the payment. Rather, they struggle to earn the commission by doing an agent’s work. In doing so, they expend their money plus time to perform, as best they’re able to, the jobs of an real estate agent. Those tasks include uncovering the home by way of marketing, introducing the home to willing buyers, developing a sense of buyer emergency in order to prompt an offer, preparing home inspections, dealing with qualification check ups with the loan provider, supervising maintenance tasks, and aiding the closing of the deal.

  36. Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this particular blog. The thing I would tell people is usually to give up the particular mentality that they buy at this point and shell out later. Being a society most people tend to repeat this for many things. This includes getaways, furniture, plus items we want. However, you’ll want to separate your wants from all the needs. If you are working to boost your credit score make some sacrifices. For example you may shop online to economize or you can turn to second hand merchants instead of high priced department stores with regard to clothing.

  42. I’ve observed that in the world today, video games are definitely the latest trend with kids of all ages. Many times it may be extremely hard to drag young kids away from the activities. If you want the very best of both worlds, there are various educational activities for kids. Interesting post.
