    Converted Legacy Event

    This event was converted from our old contest and event system into our new jam format for historic preservation. Some details may be confusing in the new jam context.

    It's already spring! The birds are squaki', flowers are pushin' dirt and people with allergies are sneezin'. Oh, the pleasures of spring!

    Speaking of spring pleasures,what would you consider to be the bees knees of spring? Create something that represents your favorite thing about this season!

    During this month-long event, each member or team can enter up to five spring-themed creations. Create a skin, map, blog, data pack or any combination of them! We encourage you to let your creativity blossom and submit something in as many categories as your creativity allows! Are you a pablo beecaso? Paint something and share it in the blog section! As long as your entries relate to nature in some way, they are accepted in the Bees Knees Event.

    An Event? What's all the buzz about? This means no competition, 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. Do your own sting or team up, the choice is yours!

    Hive never participated, what do I do!?
    Here's how you submit your entry, it's quite simple. Make sure your thing is nature related. How it relates to spring, 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, Data packs or Blogs.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beeholder so, we encourage all skill levels! Don't be shy! But please try to create something not too shab-bee.

    When submitting the entry, check the box indicating it's for the "Bees Knees Community Event". Budda-bee, Budda-bloom.

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

    Spring Themes
    If you decorate your profile for the season, we want to see! Flowers, trees, ferns, critters, get the idea! There are a couple of ways to do this: you can comment on this thread and let us know, OR you can tag 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!

    Last but not least, relax. You have the full month of April!

    Even though this is a non-competitive event, we encourage qualitree submissions. The event will be active for the entire month of April, 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 spring-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 data pack who knows what you'll add into the game to make Minecraft more seasonal and fun to explore during and of course after this event! We're excited to see and try what you come up with.

    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, we 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.
