← 1MRTvision Screenshot Contest

The MRTvision Screenshot Contest 2 is the ongoing second edition of the MRTvision Screenshot Contest. The contest is the original MRT Screenshot Contest with Eurovision style voting and representation. The ceremony is set to place in Murrville, following Cortesi's win at the first contest with the screenshot "After The Party". The contest's results ceremony will be in Murrville. The contest debuted on November 1, 2018. The slogan is Show Us What You've Got. The winner is set to be revealed on December 1, 2018 at the PAW Center in Murrville.

As of November 14, 2018, 31 cities have confirmed their intentions to participate in the contest and 29 of those cities have made a submission.

Development

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

Venue

The venue of the contest, 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 63 attendees. It is the only venue of its kind in Murrville. It is located across from the Color Market in the northeastern Murrville. 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 is set on November 15, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. UTC. The draw is selected and voting is open immediately after. The winner will able to influence the slogan for the next contest, choose the next host city, and receive $3,000. Second place will receive $2,000. Third place will receive $1,000. All other competitors are set to receive a $10 participation stipend.

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.
