Shock. Surprise. Joy. Excitement. With SOEmote™, your avatar mirrors your personal facial reactions. What will it look like when you win a trip to Las Vegas for SOE Live? Now is your chance to find out!

Video Assignment:

  • Come up with an original idea for an EverQuest II video that uses SOEmote. Make it EQII lore-based. Make it RPG-focused. Make it something you’ve never seen before. It’s up to you. Just make it epic.
  • Create and submit an original 30-second video featuring EverQuest II’s new SOEmote feature.

Judging Criteria: Members from the SOE EverQuest II Development and Community teams will judge the submissions and choose the winner, based on the following criteria:

  • Originality and creativity - 40%
  • Adherence to video assignment criteria - 30%
  • Overall appeal - 30%

Submission Requirements:

  • The video file must be original to you, and must contain no materials that are the intellectual property of any person or entity other than SOE, including without limitation, copyrighted works such as music or graphics, trademarks, etc.
  • The video must be no longer than 30 seconds in length
  • The video file size should be kept at or under 100 MB

Send an email with your video as an attachment or send a link of your video to [email protected]. If you send a link, we must be able to download, not simply stream, your video from the link. 

Grand Prize: Hotel, roundtrip airfare, and tickets for two to SOE Live in Las Vegas this October!

Though I like the idea, there still is alot of problems for those, like me, who wear glasses.  The SoEmote doesn't track those parts very well so expressions don't work or partially do.

This seems like a contest better left for when it is fine tuned better witht he models and expressions.

Any chance of moving up the anouncement of the contest winner a little bit? 

The rules say that the winner will be announced on Sep 27th which is exactly 3 weeks before SOE Live begins.  That's cutting it kinda close.  Flights are disappearing quickly.

Also from the official rules:

"Prizes will be delivered within approximately six (6) to eight (SMILEY weeks of verification/confirmation of winners."

I'm hoping that's just cut/paste from standard contest text.  Otherwise, it's going to take a time machine to make use of the prize once it's awarded.  SMILEY

Thanks!

I can't give you a date, but I can tell you the judging is almost complete, so we should be able to announce the winner before the 27th.
