The MRTvision Screenshot Contest 3 is the ongoing third 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 take place in Wazamawazi, following autobus22's win at the second contest with the screenshot "Golf at the Savannah Oasis". The contest debuted on February 13, 2019. The slogan is One Of A Kind. The winner is set to be revealed on March 30, 2019 at an undetermined time at the La Musica Theatre. There is set to be an accompanying official MBS livestream with both the semi-final and final ceremonies.

Development

The contest was announced on the wiki on February 8, 2019. The contest was planned to be revealed after the February 2019 GSM two days later; however, it was made public earlier to garner public opinion. The slogan and logo were revealed on February 10, 2018 at the beginning of the public portion of the February 2019 GSM. The logo is an edited version of an online image edited by MinecraftYoshi26.

Venue

The venue of the contest, the La Musica Theatre in southern Wazamawazi.

The contest's results ceremony is set to take place for the first time in Wazamawazi, following the city's victory in the previous edition with the screenshot "Golf at the Savannah Oasis", taken by autobus22. It will take place at Wazamawazi's 104-seat theatre, La Musica Theatre, which was constructed in 2015. Located next to Queen Maxima Bus Terminal and Queen Maxima Railway Station, it is a one-story large, indoor theater with an entrance on Theatre Road. It is located in the Queen Maxima District of Wazamawazi. It was originally supposed the Third Eagle Awards; however, the event was cancelled and thus the theater did not host the event.

On February 8, 2019, autobus22 had confirmed privately that the contest would be held in Wazamawazi and it was announced publicly shortly after. As usual, the venues required to have a stage, seating for viewers, and an optimal location for a camera. Also on that day, four venues were revealed as possible locations of hosting the ceremony.

On February 11, 2019, La Musica Theatre was selected as the venue for the contest and Grandma Henny's Grand Theatre's Hall 2 was shortlisted.

All other competitors will receive $15 as a participatory stipend if they vote in the final. The top 10 are set to be featured on the website, changed from the prior top 12.

It was revealed on February 11, 2019 that MinecraftYoshi26 was contemplating having semi-finals, but had not made an official decision whether or not it would occur and had yet to work out all the logistics. He stated that it was time-sensitive and would be dependent on the amount of participants. On February 22, 2019, it was confirmed that there would be two semi-finals. As the prior winner, Wazamawazi would automatically qualify for the final and vote in both semi-finals. The top 10 in the semi-finals advance to the final. If eliminated in the semi-finals, those participants are not required, but highly encouraged, to vote in the final. To receive their $15 stipend, eliminated participants would have to vote in the final. The top 10 screenshots from each semi-final advance to the final.
