Christmas Competition!

Living in a winter wonderland!

Christmas is coming towards us with great speed. And to celebrate christmas I thought I'd have a small Minecraft competition! and there is a prize for the winner!


What is the prize of the competition?
The winner will be rewarded a Minecraft account, that he/she can do whatever with. For example give it to a friend as a christmas present!


Theme of the competition
Since it's winter now and christmas is knocking at our doors the theme of the competition is winter/christmas. So what you have to do is simply to build something, anything really, that in someway can be connected to winter or christmas. A giant santa, Rudolf or an iglo, what ever you can think about.


How do I enter?
Anyone can enter the competition, simply by sending me an email to rolfdavidminecraft@gmail.com.


What should the mail contain?
Make sure you Title the mail with something like "Minecraft X-Mas competition"
In the email I would like three things, a few pictures of what ever you have built, and the world save where you have build it. I want the save so I can see that it's really you who have made it and that you didn't just take the picture from somewhere on the internet.

It is also appriciated to type a short instruction on how to get to the build, if the spawnpoint is far from it.

A movie of the build is also nice but not mandatory.


When is the last day to enter the competition?
I will take one last look at the email accounts at 12:00 on december 23 and the winner will be choosen before 18:00 the same day. This is so that the winner can give away the account if he/she whishes to.


Who will be judging the competition?
Me along with two others will be grading the contestants individually.


If you have any questions, just post a comment here on the blog and I'll try to answer it as soon as possible!



Hope you'll enjoy this!

    SvaraRadera
  4. Haha! how many worlds have you had to creat so far?

    SvaraRadera
  5. Since the new update, you don't need to create new map until you find a snow map... You just need to run around long enough and you'll find one :P

    SvaraRadera
  6. Hehe, ofc, forgot about that!

    SvaraRadera

    SvaraRadera
  12. The deadline should be changed to the 17th so the winners can get the game before beta

    SvaraRadera
  13. I have already got the account in my posession so it will be an Alpha account that's rewarded in the competition.

    SvaraRadera
  14. @Johnny Yeah that's a good idea...
    Unless the account is created before that date and given later, altough that would not let you customize it... but a name like Xmas-Winner would be nice too

    SvaraRadera
  15. Just noticed Rofl-David's comment

    SvaraRadera
  16. BTW Rofl what are there going to be the rules by which you will judge?(more concretely)

    SvaraRadera
  17. I'm building something BIG for the competition. Btw, what's the name of the account going to be?

    SvaraRadera
  18. I can't tell you the name of the account unfortunatly, due to the fact that someone with mad skills would be able to hack it. But I can tell you it's something related to the competition.

    SvaraRadera
  19. Nice language for the comments, and I just messaged you (on minecraftforums.net) a link to the download of what I got so far. It has a sled, a unfinished santa, and a death cart track by the grinch since he is in those kids movies, and evil :3.

    SvaraRadera
  20. Is it fine if I use a christmas texture pack? I have one.

    SvaraRadera
  21. You can not send me the save file to me on youtube, you have to send it to my email, rolfdavidminecraft.gmail.com

    And you can use what ever texture pack you would like.

    SvaraRadera
  22. oh my, i finished my 10k+ block project. Its really cool. But when i tried to find the save, it wasnt there, really. I did back it up on my stick. But the folder is empty(?). Oh well, atleast i got some fun building it.

    Gl on exam.

    SvaraRadera
  23. Sent you my build... hope you like it!

    SvaraRadera

    SvaraRadera
  28. no, I was asking Rolf....
    whatever it doesn't matter anymore as the competition is over... and I am getting anxious...
    I want the winner's build to be posted, please?

    SvaraRadera
  29. Hey, did you even check all the worlds?

    SvaraRadera
  30. thats not fair i don't have minecraft so i have to get it to win it? thats pointless

    SvaraRadera
  31. I did say from the beginning that one of the main reasons for the competitins was so that someone could give the account as a christmas gift to someone.
