We're celebrating the chilly December month by harnessing our combined creativity to transform PMC and Minecraft into a Winter Wonderland! Grab some hot chocolate, spread that cozy creative warmth or use it to blast the artic cold into your creations. Let's share the holiday spirit and celebrate our favorite festivities. Join us around the digital fireplace and share your carefully crafted creations with Planet Minecraft family and friends. Cheers!

Don't get cold feet! Here's what we do.

We're collecting all of this December's themed creations and packing them together like one big blocky, pixel appreciating gift! During this themed month-long event, each member or team can enter up to five winter-themed creations. We welcome skins, maps and blogs or combination of them. Don't be shy, join the fun! There are as many possibilities as the amount of snowflakes on the North pole! As long as your entries relate to winter in some way, whether it's cold and frigid or cozy and festive, they are welcome in our Winter Wonderland event.

Event? This means no competition, no judges and no final leader board. This event is for the pure fun of creating something together as a community! At the end of the event, each participant will receive a special award for their trophy case. Go alone, team up, roll over, it's all good.

Do I gift-wrap my creation?

No need for gift-wrapping! Here's how you submit your entry, it's simple. Create something new or multiple somethings that are winter-themed. Upload your creation to one of the following categories: Projects, Skins or Blogs. Upload your creation like normal but check the box indicating it's for the "Winter Community Event".

To add to the event experience, we encourage you to diamond, favorite and comment on your favorite winter submissions this month. Maybe share your favorites in a wall-post or gather them into a collection! Everyone appreciates receiving positive responses to their creations.

Take your time, you've got the entire month of December!

Even though this is a non-competitive event, we encourage you to do your best. The event will be active for the entire month of December, so don't rush it! Here are some tips for each category:

If you enter a project, we encourage you to share a world save or schematic so that we can use your creation in Minecraft. You can create any kind of project. That includes land, air, sea, space and time structures, adventure maps, redstone contraptions, organics, terraforms and pixel art. Be sure to include some good visuals (screenshots) and a clear description with your project to maximize the experience.

If you enter a skin, go for good usable character skins that people can use to dress-up winter-style in Minecraft! Start from scratch rather than using any default or common base textures. There are several Minecraft skin editing programs available but we recommend PMCSkin3D! If you need some help getting started with skins, PMC member Beanie made this excellent video tutorial on the basics of Minecraft skin editing!

If you enter a blog you naturally have more options than we can give advice on. The blog section allows for all kinds of writing, including stories, poems, articles and interviews. Write to impress and shuffle in some proper grammar whenever possible. Dot your i's and sip your teas as they can be hot.

If you enter artwork or a video, I love your unharnessed creativity and you can use the blog section to share it! We don't require featured images for blogs but a good one can raise an eyebrow or two resulting in more views so it's a recommendation. PMC member Chiaroscuro wrote a great tutorial on how to create featured images which will help you to create your own.

Rules & Guidelines

Even though this is a non-competitive event, there are a couple of rules and guidelines.

Up to FIVE entries per participant!
The event allows for any participant to enter up to five entries in any combination of projects, skins and blogs categories. Video's, artwork and other creative creations can also be shared as a blog-post.

  • The standard rules of Planet Minecraft apply to any submission.
  • You are expected to enter new work. This means you cannot enter any creation that was previously uploaded to Planet Minecraft.
  • You are allowed to enter work that was created for another winter-themed unofficial community event.
  • Collaborations and teamwork are allowed for this event.
  • Submissions that do not follow the winter theme will be disqualified.


  • If you create an entry which doesn't immediately seem winter-themed (for example: a skin of a person in a warm sweater), make sure to explain the relevance to the theme in your submission's description.
  • You can create a skin, a blog-post and a project, you do not have to choose a single category.
  • You have the entire month of December, so take your time and have fun!
  • Don't hesitate to collaborate for this event, we would love to see group efforts!
