2022 saw the long-awaited update adding the continent of Zebrica, focusing on the countries on the northern coast. The yearly contest reflected that, focusing on the north and interjections from the old world.
The 2021 art contest was the first art contest for EaW. Art could be submitted between June 20th and July 25th, and would be judged primarily by overall quality, its connection to the theme of the category it had been submitted under, and to Equestria at War as a whole. Participants were given the option to include explanations along with their work, which have been included in the gallery. The three themes were chosen based on different aspects of war- the war at the front, at population centers and individual homes and towns, where the dangers of battle were far but still changed life for many, and the efforts of the propaganda machine to inspire.
