You may use images that are not overly confronting/ unsettling or excessively grotesque or gory.

I just read through the contest details and was wondering if the font and size of your entry matter?

Whatever font and text size you use is completely up to you. Be as creative as your like as long as you follow the rules and requirements.

That's... partially my fault. I wanted to start one at beginning of June, but I forgot and by time I remembered, I was gone for 3 weeks and the Internet was pretty poor... You get the picture. Thankfully Cib is better at remembering and organizing things than I am. :)

Are we allowed to base our story off real-life history and mythology or are we required to write fiction-only?

The story must be of the underwater ruins found in Minecraft. So in saying that, it would be fiction only.

Darth, I think it would be best to just let Cib give out the official answers, because he's the one who knows for sure about all of the information. I think it would save a lot of confusion IMO, but that's only my suggestion.

Your story does not have to make reference to or include names or suggestions of any feature of Minecraft but the story must be about the history behind the underwater ruins found in Minecraft.

As confirmed below, your entry must explain how the underwater ruins in
Minecraft came to be. You're not required to make reference to any of
the games features as long as it tells the story of the events that left
only the underwater ruins at the bottom of the ocean.

I have a question; if you're writing a fresh new blog post/story for the contest, are you allowed to post the unfinished version to 'save' your progress? Or do you have to keep it open, or make it something where you can save progress?

In the edit blog submission page, there's a box labeled "Publish Live" at the very top of the page. To save a draft of the submission, untick the box and click save.
By doing this, it means that only yourself and site moderators can see it.
Once you're ready to publish and enter your blog, tick the Publish Live and of course the contest entry box as well.

Um, I have a question. Does this have to relate to Minecraft (For example, referencing the overworld, players blocks, etc.), or can it just be a story about how some ruins came to be?

Hope this clears things up.
