We’re proud to announce an official EVE Online cosplay contest, running during this year’s upcoming GM Week, taking place from 20 – 24 September ! While the celebrations are still weeks away, we know just how much time and effort a cosplay can require, and as such we’re making sure to announce this event as early as possible.
The world of EVE Online is host to all manner of diverse and vivid elements, factions, and aesthetics, every one of which can be seen on full display among the community of immortal Capsuleers punctuating the stars of New Eden. In times past, countless enthusiastic players have dressed up for meetups in the styles of EVE, most significantly at Fanfest events – and though there haven’t been any official gatherings this year, we want to provide you with an exciting opportunity to show off the same spirit!
HOW TO ENTER:
The contest will officially commence at the start of GM Week, from 20 – 24 September, and submissions will be accepted all week, closing at 23:59 UTC on 24 September. Entrants will be asked to post pictures of their cosplay on social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) with the hashtag #gmweekcosplay. After contest submissions have closed, we’ll be running a community vote on the official EVE Online forums, selecting a crowd of finalists to vote across for one additional winner who will receive a special Community Prize!
