    *Thanks go to quite_indeed for Creating this Graphic for Me*

    With Less than 2 Weeks till the target release date of 1.4 (the Pretty Scary Update) and 2 1/2 Weeks till Halloween; I am holding a Halloween themed Contest! To enter this contest, you must submit ONE screenshot of a Halloween themed creation - Built right here on EMC.

    Who Can Participate? Everyone can join in on this contest! *Staff may even Enter*

    Where can I build my Creation? Anywhere on the Empire. Including Town, the Wilderness, Nether, End.

    This should go without saying, but be sure to follow all of the Rules of EMC while building these. All builds must be Legit.
    Edit: No Image Editing Software may be used.

    So I built my Entry for the Contest, now what? Once you are ready to enter the contest, you can enter only 1 Screenshot into the contest (no exceptions). Be sure to use a texture pack that fits the theme Best. Take the Screenshot and upload it to an Image Sharing website. I personally recommend; but others will work as well.

    Once you have taken and uploaded a Screenshot, you then Fill out the Entry Form at If you have any issues regarding that process Let me (chickeneer) know.

    • Only one entry per person.
    • A creation can only be entered once into the Contest. A group of people may come together and enter as ONLY ONE ENTRY if they wish.
    All Entries are DUE by Sunday October 21st, 2012 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). This will give me some time to prepare for Voting.

    Voting will start as soon as I can get it put together after new entries are closed. If all goes according to plan - Voting will end Sunday October 28th at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time (EST). *Note: this is subject to change - if I run into issues keeping on schedule*

    The section I am sure everyone is eagerly awaiting to find out more about. Based upon the Community voting mentioned above. The community shall choose the Top 3 Winners of the Contest - who will all receive equal Prizes. The winners of the contest will be after EMC is updated to 1.4 (tentatively). The three winners will receive an equal split of Rupees and a selection of BRAND NEW 1.4 items provided by myself.

    In addition, from the Top 3 contestants - The staff will pick the Grand Prize winner. The Prize though is Top-Secret, but I assure you that it will be worth it.

    Currently the Rupees Prize Pot split among 3 People is just 50,000 Rupees (from myself). If you would like to donate to this Prize - Send me a Message here on the site. I will even put your name
    down as a contributor with the donation amount. If you prefer - you may donate anonymously.
    Edit: I will update the Donator list as I physically receive the donation :)

    I believe I have covered everything regarding this contest. Feel I have missed something? Having issues with anything concerning the contest? You can either reply below or Send me a Private Message here on the site.

  4. Could I group effort be allowed, such as me and my wild camp.

  5. That would be acceptable. If you decide to do this - I would want One Person to be the "contact" for it - such as yourself. When filling out the Form Type up something like Mrlegitislegit - AwesomeWildCampName. Then if you are one of the winners, the winnings will go to you which can then be distributed at your discretion

  7. You could always build it somewhere in the Wild. You only need to get a screenshot from it.

  15. 3 stacks of diamonds... to the winners.. from MEH!.
  16. Time for me to win for once!
  17. I'll enter the contest! Seems like a great thing for great builders with hardly any rupees!
  18. Ive got a question about this contest: If people team up to make an entry, do they both get to enter the same thing?
  19. Multiple people can't enter the same thing. If the creation wins, it only counts as one entry. :)

    By the way. I want to thank ShadyShannon for suggesting this idea to me :D
    and also to several Staff members who I consulted with to get things organized.

    Updating the Donations List now.
