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.

  • 3000 PLEX.

Third Prize:

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

  20. I have acquired some new elements from your internet site about computers. Another thing I have always presumed is that computer systems have become something that each residence must have for most reasons. They supply you with convenient ways to organize homes, pay bills, go shopping, study, tune in to music as well as watch television shows. An innovative way to complete every one of these tasks is to use a laptop computer. These personal computers are mobile ones, small, powerful and easily transportable.

  26. Thanks for the ideas shared in your blog. Something else I would like to talk about is that weight loss is not supposed to be about going on a dietary fads and trying to get rid of as much weight as you can in a set period of time. The most effective way to lose weight is by taking it gradually and following some basic guidelines which can enable you to make the most from a attempt to shed weight. You may recognize and already be following most of these tips, nonetheless reinforcing awareness never does any damage.

  40. Today, I went to the beachbeachfrontbeach front with my kidschildren. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She putplaced the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completelyentirelytotally off topic but I had to tell someone!
