    Creating Your Own
    Anyone can create and run a contest or an event! I'm here to give you some pointers on how to do it successfully.
    Some instructions for creating a well-organized contest:
    If you want Empire Minecraft support, such as a front page post and server broadcasts, submit your plan using this contest application. You do not need the support of EMC to run your own contest. The application is optional.
    • Create a thread in the "Community Creations" subforum. [Link]
    • Describe in detail the theme of your contest.
    • Describe the criteria that the entries must meet.
    • Describe how the contest entries will be judged.
    • List the prizes that you will provide for the winners.
    • List the number and the places available to win.
    • List the duration of your contest, and the starting/ending dates.
    • Note that if there are multiple contests running at the same time, people are less likely to enter because they will be busy. Make an effort to plan your contest when no one else is running one.
    • Do not create contests with themes that have already be run recently.
    Here are some examples of past contests;
    ISMOOCH's building contest,
    Amadai's wool art contest,
    Scarligmione's landscaping contest.

    Instructions for creating an event:
    Events are a lot more fluid. You can create any kind of event that you can think of, as long as it is appropriate and follows the EMC rules. An event can be anything from a holiday celebration to a quest or treasure hunt. Be creative!
    If you want to apply for promotion or support from the EMC staff, use this event application.

    Good luck, and have fun!
    Amadai out.
