Thanks to Telegram Sam and all the judges for making this kind of event happen. This is the kind of community event that makes me proud to be part of EVE's culture. The creativity and drive of community members has been present since before the game launched and is a big reason we are all still here.

Thanks to all the donors for the enticing goodies that make this particular event fun.
I also want to thank DireNecessity  and Sugar Kyle for some infectious enthusiasm when it came to the contest.
