    Official IonCraft Screenshot Contest #1
    January 30, 2016 - February 13, 2016
    Theme: Wonder Within IonCraft
    Welcome to the first official IonCraft Screenshot Contest! In this contest, you will be showing off your skills as a photographer and photo editor! This contest's theme is Wonder Within IonCraft! This is a fairly vague topic, so feel free to use your imagination and be creative, but remember that all IonCraft rules still apply. Please be sure to read all of the Rules & Guidelines before submitting your entry.

    Rules & Guidelines
    • You may not submit screenshots that are not your own.
    • You may use other players in your screenshots, but only the creator will receive credit.
    • You may only submit screenshots taken in IonCraft from any world.
    • You may not submit screenshots taken before the contest start date. Feel free to post previously taken screenshots in our Videos & Screenshots forum.
    • You may edit or modify your screenshot's image properties, such as color, tone, or contrast or add additional effects to your screenshot.
    • You may not draw, paint, or add new overlay images to your screenshot.
    • If text is added to the screenshot, it may only contain the following phrases "IonCraft", "play.ioncraft.org", "Photo by [Your Username]". Text is not required for entries.
    • You must be a Citizen or higher to participate.
    Judges
    After all entries are submitted, each judge will rate each screenshot on a scale of 1-10 with a score of 10 being absolutely amazing and follows the theme perfectly, and a score of 1 being extremely low quality build that does not follow the theme. After each judge has scored each submission, the total points for the submission will be added together to determine the final score. The highest score being 30, and the lowest score being 3.

    This contest's judges: Chachi1975, Always_Emily_419, and Mini_Chinchilla.

    Screenshot Description: The family tree of many, but not all, of the prominent players on Ioncraft. Built by @Elykius, @lucadel008, and myself. The original, more confusing version is in the back, and the redone version is in the front. There's only two changes between them when it comes to actual relations. The colors are different generations. /warp familytree

    Screenshot Description: When I first joined Ioncraft last April, I had never really been to a proper MC server before. I'd never seen a hub, or a minigames server-- all of this was new. I was a bit timid about trying out servers, but I decided to stay and give Ioncraft a chance when I saw the hub spawn. The hub gave me a great first impression of this server, and without it I'm not sure I would have stayed. When i think of "Wonder in Ioncraft" I can only think of my first impressions of this server when I wandered around the hub for the first time.

    Screenshot Description: The giant Metropolis, Megaton, originally a trading outpost back in 1738 founded by two farmers lucadel008, and Chachi1975, and has boomed in expansion ever since. Above the city lays a blanket of morning fog, and the wet brick streets shimmer with the reflection of the buildings. The small alleyways are like mazes with the fog, almost impossible to navigate.

    Honestly, anything that promotes the feeling of wonder/awe inspiring. Whether they be scenery, landscapes, buildings, cities, etc. I think it would be better if the screenshots could somehow be tailored to IonCraft.... I.E. Wonder Within IonCraft. I might change the theme to that.

    No, only one screenshot per contest. However, you can post any other screenshots you'd like to share over in the Videos & Screenshots forum.

    I meant more like modifying the image properties, like color, tone, contrast.... Not necessarily painting over it. I'll clarify in the description.

    Thank you for the clarification about drawing!

    I see that you changed the theme to "wonder in Ioncraft"-- what does that imply differently from simply "wonder"?

    I would like the screenshots to be unique to IonCraft.... i.e. something that's wonderful within IonCraft, that can only be found on IonCraft. A random landscape could be from any server, if you know what I mean? I understand that's vague, I apologize. The future contest's will be more specific. For this contest only, I'll allow people to change their screenshot submissions until the final day of the contest.
