Hello fellow Minecrafters. This is the first time I have ever held such an event in this magical world of PMC and I hope to make it a good one. As you may have seen in the title, this is a building contest for all those builders out there and even for the people who can't build but still want to give it a shot.

In this contest you will be asked to edit the island that I have provided to get the most unique, original and beautiful island you can possibly get.

These are some points you will get marked on.

-Originality (if it has been done before)
-Detail (How much detail you actually put into your build)
-The screenshots (I'm not just judging build skill. I'm judging how well you can take pictures of your map.)
-The PMC description (You need a good description, "I bilt dis cuz i haz 2" will not suffice and will get you a very low score)

RULES

There has too be rules. Other wise it would all go horribly wrong.

-Your PMC post need not have a download as you will be marked on screenshots and description.
-Do not steal other people's entries. This is a disqualification.
-You must use the custom map provided. Failure to do so will result in a DISQUALIFICATION.
-Swearing in comments will get you kicked from the contest.
-You are not, I repeat not allowed to use the custom map for publishing in any way other than reposting an EDITED VERSION for the contest.

Entry

There is only one way to enter. Follow these special steps and you will be in for a chance to win.

Step 1: Download the custom made map.
Step 2: Redesign the custom made map to make it "your island"
Step 3: Take your screenshots displaying the key items of the island.
Step 4: Edit the screenshots.
Step 5: Post your project on PMC with a very detailed description.
Step 6: Notify me that you have entered by commenting on this blog (not the build) This blog giving this text.
"I am entering the contest. Here is my project (link)." Its a very simple process. I will comment with the words "Thanks" This allows me to know who I have judged.
Step 7:Sit and wait, you may only enter once.

MAP

This is the map through adfly. It helps me support the contest. - DOWNLOAD

This is the map with the direct link off the project page - DOWNLOAD

If the download is not here it is because it has not been posted. This is as you cannot post multi linking projects and blogs at the same time. There may be a delay.

PRIZE
The prize will most likely be something on steam. Most likely a counter strike source guest pass. I know it may not seem much but it is my first contest and I have no money. Downloading the map, DIAMONDING and SUBSCRIBING will help.

DEADLINE - 3RD OF AUGUST -PUBLIC VOTE-

Can i edit the island that i'm building on?
You have to use the custom map. Any other map would make the contest unfair.

You can do what you want with the island provided. So yes that includes voxel. As long as you can tell that it used to be the island.

I would enter, try to win prize, but as I don't have steam and steam games are very laggy for me.
So would you give something else or not?
Hmm I don't really have anything else but If I find something that will be the prize.

By editing the island, do u mean adding stuff into it etc?
Thanks!
The deadline will be the 3rd as If it is not then It will have to be around the 20th and thats a bit late.
