The time has come to announce the winners of the EVE Online Screen Shot Contest.
The top two entrants will each win a PLEX, a 30 day Pilot License EXtension, which will give them 30 days of game time… or around 330 million ISK if they decide to sell the PLEX in-game.
Another group of entries will each earn 10 million ISK for submitting the best picture for a given list of categories.
About picking the winners
I had 112 pictures to choose from, entered by 26 individuals.
It was not easy to choose. And the choosing was complicated by letting people enter five pictures, but then only allowing a single prize to go to any given person. Some people sent me pictures that were contenders in five different categories. Heck, you will see a few pictures that won that could easily have covered a couple of categories. Conflicts in with people being in more than one category caused me to scrap the Rookie Ship category, as the people who were contending for that had winners in other categories.
In the end, once I picked a winner, all the other shots from that person had to be set aside. So, aside from the two overall prizes, you might view the rest as the best picture that was qualified to win.
That said, there are some pretty awesome pictures on the list from a game that can really make you feel like you’re looking through a window into space.
Now on to the winners.
