C&C The First Decade: Biggest Command & Conquer Fan Contest

Electronic Arts is holding a video-submission contest "proving your undying devotion to C&C!" The information on this page is based on an email received from Electronic Arts online community manager Aaron "APOC" Kaufman on Friday, October 28, 2005.

» The Contest:

Are You The Biggest Command & Conquer TM Fan?
Prove it! The producers of Command & Conquer (C&C) want you to create an original video showing your C&C pride

This is your ONE chance to define your place in C&C history. All it takes is passion, a little bit of humor, and a 3 minute video showcasing why YOU are the biggest C&C fan in the world!

Over the past 10 years, you've seen archetype characters such as Tanya, Kane, Yuri, Alexander Romanov, CABAL, President Michael Dugan, Albert Einstein, and more, come to life in the vast C&C universe. These memorable characters defined a classic cinematic period of videogame history that hardcore fans of C&C will never forget. Now is your chance to become a part of C&C history by showing us why YOU are one of the biggest Command & Conquer fans ever.

We're looking for you to submit the most entertaining fall-off-your-chair-laughing videos proving your undying devotion to C&C. Maybe it’s you dressed as Kane reenacting your favorite cinematic from the game... Perhaps it’s you showing us your fancy website... Or maybe the life-size GDI tank you built in your garage... Or maybe it's a memorable match that changed your life. It’s up to you, but we want your very best.

We’re also looking for any photos or fan art you’ve created. This could be of you at the top of the Swiss Alps holding a C&C Gold box... Or a drawing of Tanya (rated Teen please)... Anything to get our blood pumping with C&C.

Whatever you submit, make it your best! We have something BIG planned, so make sure to check out www.CommandAndConquer.ea.com on November 3rd.
