    Official IonCraft Screenshot Contest #2
    February 18, 2016 - March 3, 2016 March 10, 2016
    Theme: Towny
    Welcome to the second 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 Towny! 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 the Towny 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: imKarma, Norst33, and 1 more TBA.

    How to Enter!
    When you're ready to enter your submission, copy and paste the following form in a reply to this thread below. You may only enter one screenshot per contest!

    Screenshot Description: As this screenshot contest is about Towny, I feel that I should share my favorite place in megaton.

    I feel that all builds, whether it be in creative or survival should follow this guideline: Use the land to you're advantage.

    I believe that this picture illustrates that perfectly, from the way that the water flows to the way that the build is structured around the terrain. It flows nicely and is not too congested. It has a peaceful, yet civilized look to it. I love the way the shadows move here and the fact that you can even see the far outreaches of the town on the left at Turtle Hill (where the white tower is). This picture makes me feel at peace and I hope it makes you feel the same.

    Oh and no picture is complete without a cute bunny in it.

    Screenshot Description: I took this in Aviolym, the statue represents freedom and friendship. I edited this in Photoshop and added some effects such as the blur. (I hope thats ok, if not, I will remove it.) The sunset is natural, not an effect. I think the way the surrounding objects are directing towards the subject (the statue) makes this piece flow nicely. The trail of lanterns shows the theme of Aviolym (light) and directs strongly towards the subject as well. (Graphic design enthusiast here 8))

    Zeke: 9. I'm not sure what the blue thing is in the left-hand corner of the screenshot. If it's water... well, I hate blue water. :p If it's void, personally I would have patched it up. But I do think that it would be a good picture to introduce Ioncraft to other people. :)
    Coma: 9. Sorry man, I think the water is too reflective for that particular picture. Also I'm not sure that was the best angle for the screenshot. But good job. I would also use that pic to introduce Ioncraft. :)
    Dragon: 6. There doesn't seem to be a focus on any particular object, and the lamp is too close.
    Spaz: 7. Looks a little cartoon-y. Not quite as Minecraft-y as I would have liked. But that could be a texture pack. The actual angle is nice. :)

    :eek: Close battle Spaz! I look forward to battling you in the future >:D
    But no really, thanks everyone. Major respect to everyone who entered.
    Also Spaz how do I fix my shaders if you know how? There are weird shadow lines on blocks that are distant, if you have any idea that would be awesome! :D
