Contest chronology
Followed byMRTvision Screenshot Contest 2

The MRTvision Screenshot Contest 1 was the first edition of the MRTvision Screenshot Contest. The contest is a server-wide screenshot competition with Eurovision-style voting and representation.

The first contest debuted on June 16, 2018, at the June 2018 General Staff Meeting, replacing the MRT Screenshot Contest. The contest's slogan was "Celebrating Six Years". The winner was revealed during an informal ceremony on Mumble on July 8, 2018. The Central City Performance Center in Central City was named as the honorary venue on March 24, 2019.

32 cities participated in the contest. The winner was Murrville with "After the Party", a screenshot of Daneburg taken by Cortesi. Kessler came second with the screenshot "Festivity" and Covina came third with the screenshot "Winter Wonderland".

Production

In 2018, MinecraftYoshi26 became more interested in the Eurovision Song Contest and wanted to create a contest that brought the Eurovision Song Contest to the server where everyone could partake, regardless of singing abilities. He ultimately came up with the idea of mixing the Eurovision Song Contest's style of voting and other aspects with the MRT Screenshot Contest. The concept was finalized at the General Staff Meeting on June 16, 2018.

Format

The contest features members representing cities, each submitting a screenshot to be voted on by the participants and the willing public. Each city and willing non-participants award a set of 12, 10, 8–1 points to their 10 favorite screenshots, respectively. Each participant is required to vote. Failing to vote or voting strategically can result in the participant facing disqualification or a possible ban from participating in future contests.

There was no official theme selected, other than the slogan. The slogan was stated as the theme as it was broad enough to encompass a large range of photos.

The deadline to join was on June 23, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. UTC, but was extended until the last day to submit screenshots as well, June 30, 2018, by some demand. The deadline to submit a screenshot by sending it to MinecraftYoshi26 was June 30, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. UTC, but it was closed early by about an hour. The draw was selected and voting opened immediately after with voting open for a week. The winner was able to influence the slogan for the next contest, choose the next host city, and received $5,000. Second place received $3,000. Third place received $1,000. The top 12 were featured on the MRT website. All competitors received a $20 participation stipend for voting.

Participating cities

Cortesi, representing Murrville, won with the screenshot "After The Party".

All of the screenshots are viewable together on a public Google Folder.

32 cities participated in the contest. The top 12 screenshots were featured on the MRT website. The results were revealed on July 8, 2018.

Notes

  1. The Central City Performance Center in Central City was announced as the venue for the contest; however, it was dropped as the host city shortly after its announcement and there was no official venue for the contest. It was added as the honorary venue for the contest after the contest concluded.
  2. Lanark is also partially shown in the screenshot.
  3. The screenshot was taken in the outskirts of Eagleshore.
  4. While Coruscant and Eagleshore both finished with one point, Eagleshore is listed as finishing "ahead" of Coruscant due to the tiebreaker rule that favors the screenshot latest in the draw order.
  5. The screenshot was taken in the outskirts of Quartz City.
