    Smile Christmas Build Competition

    Announcing the PC Gamer Minecraft Server's Christmas Build Competition

    To celebrate Christmas we thought we would hold a Christmas build competition. We want to see your creations, be they 3D sculptures, pixel art, interactive machines, whatever, and no matter how good or bad they are, just as long as they are Christmas related.

    This is first and foremost a bit of fun so we encourage all users no matter your ability to join in. However there will also be prizes for the best builds, including the chance to win an extremely rare poster of the area around Old Spawn that's signed by Notch himself along with some of the Mojang team (big thanks to PC Gamer who kindly donated these to us.)

    For a sneak peek at these posters in the hands of Notch, see here:

    [url]http://twitpic.com/6s97kz[/url]



    To make it fair on all, the competition will be split into three categories:

    Normal Users aged 14 and under
    Normal Users aged 15 and over
    Admins & Creative users

    To take part just tell an Admin which category you are in and where you are going to be building.

    Normal users will then be given a chest containing some building materials to get you started (Please use these materials for your Christmas build only, or you will get put on Santa's naughty list). Any additional materials will need to mined/crafted as Admins will not be giving any additional help except for flattening land if required.

    Only one build per person can be entered into the competition.

    You can build in teams, but as there can only be one prize awarded, you will need to nominate a prize winner before starting your build.

    All builds must be your original work, not copied from elsewhere or built from someone else's design.

    Once you have completed your builds, please take screenshots and post them here (remember to put your Minecraft name in your post and which category you are in), and if you want to, talk a bit about your build. If you don't know how to post screenshots, or are unable to post here, please ask an Admin for assistance.

    The builds will be judged on the server itself, using the default texture pack.

    The closing date for entries is 31st December.

    Winners will be announced as soon as we can after that date (please bare in mind that with it being Christmas, we may be a bit tips...*cough*...busy ).


    Prizes. We already have some prizes lined up but may add more at a later date if we can scrounge some items together.

    I begin tommorow starting in the desert near where I'm doing my big build. Will give coordinates when I get on server tommorow.

    We have just had a very kind donation to add to the prize pot.

    The winner of each category will now also get a free game of their choice from Steam (up to the value of £30).

    Many thanks to the person in question.
