EDIT: The contest has ended, you can find the results here: https://shadowkingdom.org/threads/creative-build-contest-undiscovered-civilizations-results.2240/ Happy 1st of May everybody. With the beginning of this month the results for our building contest theme poll are in, and we can finally announce the competition in more detail! Contest Theme As most of you know, we ran a poll to decide which theme the contest will be based around. Thank you to everybody that participated in deciding the theme of Undiscovered Civilisations! We had more responses than anticipated, with the results coming pretty close. Theme Description: What secrets lay beneath the rocky earth, under the deepest ocean bodies or within thick jungles? What civilizations live out past our reaches? Build your ideal undiscovered world and reap glory for your discoveries. This contest theme is based around the creation of mysterious new lands never before seen by humans. Perhaps you've discovered a previously unknown temple, or a strange colony on a far planet. The theme is rather open, so what you build comes down to what the theme says to you personally. We want to see your wildest ideas brought to life! Prizes What's a competition without some good prizes? Each of the top 10 builds will receive a reward for their effort in the form of additional build points, as well as their name on display for all to see at spawn. The best three builds will earn a place in the museum world! 1st Place: 1,000 points + $50 donation store coupon 2nd Place: 500 points + $25 donation store coupon 3rd Place: 250 points + $15 donation store coupon 4th - 5th Place: 100 points 5th - 10th Place: 50 points How To Participate Join our creative server over at c.shadowkingdom.org, and head to /warp contest. Claim a plot in the contest world and start building. It's that simple. No further sign-up is required. All plots are 75x75 blocks. After the contest is over, staff will get together and judge all the builds, narrowing it down to the top 10. Contest Rules No group builds allowed. Everything must be built on the server in the designated world, after the opening date. No copying others' content. No build mods/clients allowed (e.g. Schematica). We recommend building in default texture pack, as that is what they will be judged in. Staff members (including their alt accounts) are not allowed to participate. So when does this contest start? Right now! As of the time this announcement is made, everybody is free to begin participating in the contest. The event will run until May 15, meaning you have two full weeks to work on your masterpieces. Once the building period is over, results will be decided and released on May 22nd. After that, you will have the opportunity to copy your build over to your conventional plots, if you want to keep or submit it. What are you waiting for, get going! We are all looking forward to seeing what you create. Good luck!
