Are you tired of seeing the same old Pax Amarria advertisement on every billboard in the Amarr Empire? Sick of the constant sight of those who’re on New Eden’s most wanted list? Are you done with hearing about the latest flavor of Quafe?

Now is your chance to help enact change and your chance to see your corporation, alliance, coalition or just the general cause you fight for be displayed for the whole cluster to see on the billboards that line the trade routes, highways and backwater travel routes of New Eden.

With the March release we replaced every advertising billboard in New Eden with a new, more configurable version to which we can now send all manner of video content in order to enrich the immersion of New Eden and bring the universe to life.

So why not see what you guys can come up with and have a competition for billboard commercials?

Check out the contest here!

Don't forget, Fiverr is available if you have an idea but lack video editing tools. It's a pretty cheap way to go.

Pleasure Hub videos are woefully lacking. I shall do my part to further the cause of advertising exotic neon space dancers.

While your working on billboards.. (cool feature btw)

Can you add some visual indications on stargates of the change in security of the next system.

There should be visual indicators that your about to enter low sec / null sec or back to high sec. The notification pop up needs to go away and be replaced with a cool visual. Like yellow flashing lights on the Gate infrastructure for low sec and a warning billboard.

also... can u make the billboards bigger ?

Great suggestion. Very relevant.

Are still images allowed? I assume flickering and holographic effects would be added by the billboard itself.

"All visuals need to be from within the EVE Universe."

Does this include text? Can we use text and if so what is the "eve" font we would need?

I know is a lot of resource to do this but have to keep in mind that people go and come to the game, so if a person do a character propaganda, and leave the game some some time, how do you plant to deal whit this?

Or a Alliance, Corporation, coalition stop exist will his propaganda still be display?

They need to be about 20x larger. I hope the new advertisement whatsits are appropriately sized.

For .webm tools, there is a selection here.

I will offer some recommendations tomorrow on where to start with compression settings after speaking with our video experts to make sure no format limitations went unstated in CCP Falcon's announcement.

I'm going to second the question of whether multiple submissions are allowed. My alliance is interested in me making one for them, but I'm also interested in making some others. I didn't notice anything in the rules but I'd like confirmation before I start sending in multiple ads and get disqualified or something of that nature.
