Theme: I've been wanting to do a Gothic-style theme for this contest, but I'm always up for suggestions, especially because it looks like we won't have as many entries

I've been noticing that there are numerous skinning contests, but substantially fewer building contests, so I decided to see if anyone wanted one! Also, I was in the mood for judging builds, but we'll gloss over that.

I am hoping for at least 8 contestants, and if more happen to be interested, I'll see what I can do about it (that's a big if, considering I don't even know if I'll get that many) They must meet the criteria as follows:

  1. I will only be accepting individuals, not building teams
  2. You must use default blocks (no modded blocks such as Conquest or Chisel/Chisel & Bits) but you can use whatever resource pack you desire
  3. You must provide be able to provide a world download (schematics will not be accepted) of your build
If the contest proceeds, I will announce the rules for the first round at that time.

Prizes
Though I haven't decided on a final prize yet, it can include (but may not be limited to) a world download of mine, a custom written story, getting featured on my profile, a badge/medal, or anything that the winner and I can agree on.

Join by commenting on this thread (preferably) or sending me a PM! Please, come by and build!

if you missed the entry and would like to participate if there is a next one, let me know

I would like to join if spaces are still open. I have only joined skin contests, as you have said, they are more popular-- probably because they are faster to do. I love to build, but I usually do it for myself. I can see this as a good way to show off my skills. }XD Gothic is an interesting build style that I wouldn't mind trying out since I haven't tried it before. My comfort zone of building has been in medieval fantasy for the longest time.
-thanks for considering me
[P.S. please PM when the first round begins, if you take me as an contestant.]

I'm interested in joining, but I'd also like to know what the theme is, since I'm not very good at certain types of builds.

Thanks for your interest! I'm still trying to decide what it will be, but it will likely be something simpler to start off. I was considering doing something like a imitation challenge, where I give a real-life building and ask everyone to make as accurate of a representation as possible in Minecraft.

As for a general building style, I know and understand Gothic the most, but I'm always open for suggestions if it will help get this competition off the ground.

My best area is modern/traditional, but I can do a bit of medieval, but I'm open to try new things too.

Also, you should have a longer entry period, so that more people get a chance to see it, since the forums aren't too active.

Entry period has been extended! Thanks to Mining_Mr_Fox, PixelNinja112, and Kaotic Kingdom for having expressed interest so far. Looking for five more builders and we can get this underway!

An interesting idea. I'm not able to compete in the official PMC building contests, since the submission time highly favors build teams. Two to three weeks? For real? How is a single player with a job/study/both going to be able to build something impressive in that short period of time?
So yeah, a contest specifically aimed at single players seems like a great idea! I hope enough builders would be willing to compete in order to make this happen.

Absolutely! One of my goals with this contest is to encourage builds that have detail and are thoughtful, rather than builds that are big because they look nice in renders.
