[Federation Day YC125] Announcement

Fellow Capsuleers, citizens of the Federation

UPDATE: thanks to generous sponsors and individual donations, we have increased our prizes and rewards for each part of the event. Check in detail each event information and conditions.

With great joy, I announce this year’s event to Celebrate Federation Day YC125 in Luminaire.

We invite every capsuleer and Federation citizen to join us in Luminaire Saturday 17th of June, starting from 18:00 eve standard time, to see the fireworks and attend the festivities regarding this annual celebration.

On this occasion we have 3 core events planned, here is the overview for them, further details provided below:

  1. Miss and Mister Federation pageant contest: a classic and always favorite event of the public, by popular vote the audience selects their favorite and most attractive capsuleer pilots, embodying the Federation ethnic diversity cultural richness, and ideals, these individuals represent the most gorgeous pilots within Federation sovereignty. Federation ships and unique SKINS will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places as per public votes tallied.

  2. Ship customization and fireworks showcase: bring your most beloved ship and apply the most outrageous coat of nanites to its outer hull, while flying in “conga” fleet formation. The most impressive and impactful designs will be awarded cash prizes on the spot. Remember to bring fireworks.

  3. Poster design competition: As capsuleers, ships are our basic tools: we manufacture or buy them by the thousands. But how often have we take notice of the sales brochure? This year we request all visual designers and artists who wish to participate to submit a piece of artwork in vertical poster format that portray a singular ship of the current roster of available Federation designed vessels. It should depict said ship as either a sales advert, promotional material, inspirational account of achievements, or technical profiling. Special PLEX currency and selected Federation Navy ships will be available as prizes.
