Starships are the shield, sword and signature for the pilots of EVE. They are created both to tear down entire empires and to gather and transport the resources needed to build anew. What new machine will you bring to the warfront? Will yours be a craft of elegance and beauty? Will the mere presence of it prove more intimidating than any arsenal a pilot could load into its bays? Design a starship and enter it into the EVE Online Create A Starship Contest for a chance to have your dream ship become a reality. The 1st Place winner will have their ship added to the premiere space MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game), EVE Online where countless pilots will build and fly the winners' creation.

Show us your real concept art skills and get judged by the EVE Online creative team! Examples of how an entry should look are here (image) and here (video). Entrants will need to provide their entry from all six orthogonal views in order to qualify for further consideration as a potential winning entry.

Experience EVE Online, free for 14 days, and discover the richest gameplay and most engaging community in online gaming. To download the client and create your free trial account, visit trial.eveonline.com.

They're all too similar, but they would make great Amarr ships.

They are all the same, I just changed the page settings. I 've been aware of this contest one week after its beggining and I spent 2 weeks and a half for the 3D modeling. I did not have time for others ships.

I was feared that my space ship could not fit to Eve, but if you said that it would make a great Amarr ship I'm releived. If I could, I would play Eve, but no money and no time (thank you PhD).

Totally true, EVE team didnt even had a couple of seconds to write something like "Results would be ready in 2 weeks" or something =S

Not even an exact day but an approximate... Nothing, there are rumors of people being disqualified and they dont know even why =S

There are so many very beautiful and clever designs out there, Its really inspiring, for what its worth y´all, Thank You ! I´m so glad this contest got such good response, EVE online is my favorite game ever, beautiful and complex and right up my alley of interests.
I did my best, and that is all that matters. I think my design and presentation was a legit one for EVE and precisely by this contest´s requirements. Its been long time since I published anything due to illness so I´m just glad I participated.

Ugh! I went all the way till the middle I think, can't reach the start of the images since they are tons of em. and seems like little chances for me but all hope on chances there right :) ... Good luck to all, many many best wishes guys. We all worked hard and thats what this all meant to be. and I think we all enjoyed the hazard of anxity near deadline and work load and hard HARD work... but, we did it didn't we... :) TWO THUMBS UP TO ALL!

Anyways here are my entries. Well I found out about the contest only a week before deadline and went head overheel with it. Designed 5 entries, all manually, pencil work, only used Photoshop for scans, patchups, and for presentation purposed. In the end had to drop out one of my designs because couldn't work on it within time :( ... uh well. Glad these made it in at least

yes i know. i just saw a wrong number. the 3 was more like 9 to me. and even tho i read the rules many times, i just had 19 in my mind all the time.
btw, if you look the contest rules, you barely see the number. deadline should be more highlighted for sure.

if you go through the deviations, in the URL at the end is something like offset=XXXX, if you type different numbers into that, you end up with 3807 entries
