Contest chronology
← 1MRTvision Screenshot Contest3 →

The MRTvision Screenshot Contest 2 is the second edition of the MRTvision Screenshot Contest. The contest is the original MRT Screenshot Contest with Eurovision style voting and representation. The ceremony took place in Murrville, following Cortesi's win at the first contest with the screenshot "After The Party". The contest debuted on November 1, 2018. The slogan is Show Us What You've Got. The winner was revealed on December 1, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. UTC the PAW Center in Murrville. There was an accompanying official MBS livestream with the ceremony.

The winner was Wazamawazi with the screenshot "Golf at the Savannah Oasis", taken by autobus22.

Production

The contest was announced on the wiki on October 28, 2018. The slogan and logo, both created by Cortesi, were revealed on October 30, 2018.

Voting was set to close on November 30, 2018, but closed one day earlier as all of the votes were submitted.

On the day of the ceremony, Cortesi held a raffle for those who showed up in the physical audience for two free small airplane gates: one at Epsilon International Airport and one at Murrville Kekkomatic Memorial Airport. To participate, members of the audience had to send to Cortesi number between 1 and 100. Using a random generator, he selected a winner for each gate, respectively. TheSubway won the gate at Epsilon International Airport and Narnia17 won the gate at Murrville Kekkomatic Memorial Airport.

Venue

The venue of the contest, the PAW Center, in northeastern Murrville.

The contest's results ceremony took place for the first time in Murrville, following the city's victory in the previous edition with the screenshot "After The Party", taken by Cortesi.

The PAW Center in Murrville is a two-story building that was furnished exclusively for the contest and has a capacity of 55 seats. It is the only venue of its kind in Murrville. It is located across from the Color Market in the northeastern Murrville at the corner of Colour Street and Paws Road. It sits adjacent to a river in the, at the time, newly developed area in Murrville.

Format

Per usual, 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, or may face disqualification or being banned from participating in future contests.

Through a poll on Discord and discussion between MinecraftYoshi26 and Cortesi, it was decided that there would be no theme. Though the poll showed a slight majority wanted a theme, MinecraftYoshi26 stated that they had came to this decision because they "want to not limit the people participating and avoid people from complaining their photo was rejected on the grounds of not fitting the theme."

The deadline to join and send in a screenshot was on November 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. UTC. The draw was selected and voting was opened immediately after. The winner was able to influence the slogan for the next contest, chose the next host city, and received $3,000. Second place received $2,000. Third place received $1,000. The top 12 are featured on the website. All competitors received a $10 participation stipend for voting.

On November 1, 2018, the rules were slightly changed to allow members with only an unranked cities to participate under that city, rather than having to represent someone else's.

Participating cities

autobus22, representing Wazamawazi, won with the screenshot "Golf at the Savannah Oasis".

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

Seoland was originally allocated to participate in the first semi-final as draw number 10, but was withdrawn due to not submitting a screenshot in time. This resulted in the Lacledic Republic being moved from draw number 31 to replace Seoland's draw number.
