Hello Captains,

I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting a ship design contest every month. It's going to run 'Highlander' style, so, there can be only one winner.

There is only one prize: 2000 C-Points


A new thread will be generated each month unless I can edit the title every time.


Categories (All Factions, Races):
  • Heavy Cruiser
  • Light Cruiser
  • Fleet Escort
  • Heavy Escort
  • Light Escort
  • Science Vessel
  • Long Range Science Vessel
  • Star Cruiser
  • Shuttle Craft
  • Fighter

Submissions:

You may use any medium you like, be it Photoshop, AutoCAD, Corel Painter ect.

You may only enter ONE design and it shall come with a detailed description. The art needs to be complimented by science. They have to be believable. So, I don't want to see ships that are armed with 50 torpedo tubes that is the size of Voyager.


Entries are due JULY 25th 2012 - 00:59pm

Winner will be announced August 01, 2012.

Open world wide!

Please submit all image links here:

Is it a Cryptic-sanctioned contest? Otherwise my first look remind me of a kind of Scam to grab IPs from other players to the benefit of someone else.

No not a scam since I am the one paying for the prize. I'm not even entering. If it was a Cryptic sanctioned contest it would have 'DEV Post' on the thread. You really have nothing to worry about or lose. All your doing is posting up a picture on my contest site and the community votes on it. Then I pick a winner based on the number of votes.

OP is a trustworthy individual and his contest is of great benefit to the STO community because Crpytic is currently not hosting any community ship design events.

Who said we have to get Cryptic to invite us to exercise our creativity? it is initiatives like these that will shape future generations of artists and designers by allowing them the liberty to show their talent and gain appreciation for their work.

C'mon, we can't just be complaining about lockboxes all day

I am too pathetic of an artist to participate, but I think it's awesome what you're doing here.

This contest is not soley based on asthetics. I said the art has to compliment the science.
