There’s a Design a Ship Contest going on in the community right now! Make something in the Shipyard and share it in the screenshot section on steam with the ship size classification and “contest” in its description. You win the chance to get your design turned into an official illustration that will appear on a Steam Trading Card! Post as many designs as you want, a winner will be chosen for each ship classification within the game. This contest will end on June 24th.
More information can be found in the post made on the Steam Forum here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/227160/discussions/0/864969953726393200/
