As you might remember we held a video competition in 2015 called CTRL+ALT+SPACE and the entries we received were awesome. Now with The Commanders Update 2.3 the ability for video content creators to control the camera and apply certain effects during capture, we are hosting a new CTRL+ALT+SPACE!
How To Enter
Create a short film (no more than 4 minutes) in a theme of your choosing using the Camera Suite. This theme could be a short story, a trailer, or anything else you wish; however, be aware of the rules listed below before entering! Upload your video to YouTube as Public or Unlisted and send the URL of the video to firstname.lastname@example.org with CTRL+ALT+SPACE in the Subject line!
We’re looking to be dazzled so whether you decide to create a trailer or a short film, the idea should be clear in your head and conveyed through your video.
We’re looking forward to seeing what you make, CMDRs.
Entries will close on Tuesday 9th May at 23:59 UTC

How will the competition be judged?
Much like last year, we will be working with the video editors and artists to come up with 10 videos that truly stand out. After that we’ll be sitting down together with a panel of judges and deciding on the number 1 film!
We will be judging based on creativity, originality, ingenuity and we will be paying close attention to editing, narrative, and scene composition.
We will then show the top 10 films on a livestream with members from the judging panel explaining their choices.
