    It's SUMMER TIME! Whether you get an official vacation, you lucky frog, or you've learned how to enjoy short spans of wearing Ray Bans to soak in the sun, summer & vacation go together like PMC & MC. Let's help spread the summer vibes across our community, so that everyone can enjoy some summertime strawberry jam in Minecraft!

    During this themed month-long event, each member or team can enter up to five summer-themed creations! We welcome skins, maps and blogs or any combination of them. So you can jump in the pool more than once! We encourage you to let your creativity shine and submit something in as many categories as your creative mind allows! As long as your entries relate to summer in some way, they are welcome in the Summer Vacation event.

    It's a pool party, it's a summer party, it's a PAR THREE! ... FORE! Actually up to 5 entries.There are plenty of cool inflatable tubes, grab one and jump in the pool! CANNON BALL! fiber_smart_record

    Event? Hrrrm... wut? This means there's no competition between any of us, no judges and no final leader board. Okay, so what's the point? This event is for the pure fun of creating something together as a community and seeing the theme shine through! At the end of the event, each participant will receive a special award for their trophy case. Go alone, team up, hip to the hippity hop, it's all good.

    accessibility_new I've crafted summertime! How do I share?

    Here's how you submit your entry, it's quite simple. Make sure your thing is summer related. How it relates to summer, is up to you but feel free to use the description when it's an abstract relation. Upload your creation to one of the following categories: Projects, Skins or Blogs. When submitting the entry, check the box indicating it's for the "Summer Vacation Community Event". Nice.

    To add to the event HYPE between participants, we encourage you to diamond, favorite and comment on your favorite summer submissions this month. Maybe share your favorites in a wall-post or gather them into a collection! We appreciate receiving feedback on our creations.

    Relax in the island sunshine, you have the full month of July to participate!

    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 July, 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 summer-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.

    fiber_new Summer Profile Themes

    If you decorate your profile, we want to see! There are a couple of ways to do this: you can comment on the official Summer Vacation Community Event thread and let us know, OR you can tag us (Cyprezz, DinowCookie, PMC) in a wall post and we will take a peek! At the conclusion of the event, we will feature one or more members profiles for readers to see!
