#MYEVESTORY Video Contest – Amazing Prizes To Be Won!

by CCP Falcon11:59am on Sunday 25th December 2016

As many of our followers on social media will have seen, over the course of the last few weeks we’ve released a series of videos that chart the stories and experiences of several of our high-profile pilots.

If you missed them, you can see them on YouTube here:

Asher Kagen – I Want Revenge

Jayne Fillon – The Pirate Underworld

Sindel Pellion – Nobody Has Been Everywhere

Nashh Kadavr – I Lost Everything I Stole

Chessur - They Were Wrecks When I was Done

We’re now launching a competition that begins today, where you can tell your own story and be in with a chance to win some amazing prizes.

So, how do you get involved?

To enter the contest, all you need to do is create your own video that charts an experience that you’ve had in New Eden.

Whether it’s a run-in with pirates, discovering something valuable out in space, a war declaration or maybe a successful scam or trade, we want to hear everything you guys have experienced. The highs, the lows, the successes and failures, all laid bare as learning experiences in the dystopian world of New Eden.

The video can consist of in game footage, voice overs, video of yourself, and even motion graphics and effects if you’re feeling ambitious. Let’s just remember to keep it teen rated!
