Contest chronology
← 4MRTvision Screenshot Contest

The MRTvision Screenshot Contest 5 is the ongoing fifth edition of the MRTvision Screenshot Contest. The contest is the original MRT Screenshot Contest with Eurovision style voting and representation. The ceremony is planned to place in the city of Arcadia, following lil_shadow59's win at the fourth contest with the screenshot "Parks and Recreation". The contest debuted on October 7, 2019. The slogan is Worth A Thousand Words. The winner is tentatively set to be revealed on November 16, 2019 at an undetermined time at the Arcadian Convention Center. There was planned to be an official MBS livestream for semi-finals; however, due to technical issues, MBS was unable to livestream the event. The official livestream for the semi-finals was picked up by Box Television Network on October 30, 2019. MBS is still set to have the official livestream for the final ceremony.

Production

The contest was teased on the wiki on September 20, 2019. The contest, with its slogan, was officially announced on October 6, 2019. The official logo was revealed on October 7, 2019. The logo is an edited version of an online image edited by MinecraftYoshi26.

Venue

The venue of the contest, the Arcadian Convention Center, in northern Arcadia.

The contest's results ceremony took place for the first time in Arcadia, following Arcadia's victory in the previous edition with the screenshot "Parks and Recreation", taken by lil_shadow59.

It is planned to take place at Arcadia's lakeside 60-seat convention center, the Arcadian Convention Center, which was constructed in 2019 for the contest. Located in the north side of the town in the, at the time, newly developed area in Arcadia. It is a multi-floor, large indoor center with multiple halls for various multimedia purposes. The ceremonies are set to take place in the theater inside the convention center.

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 in their semi-final, or may face disqualification, being banned from participating in future contests, or paying a fine up to $1,000. Per usual, there was no theme.

The deadline to join was revealed as October 20, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. UTC. The deadline to send in a screenshot is on October 26, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. UTC. After the semi-final reveal ceremony, the draw order will be selected for the final and voting opened for the final near the end of the ceremony. The winner will be able to influence the slogan for the next contest, choose the next host city, and receive $4,000. Second place will receive $2,000. Third place will receive $1,000. All competitors will receive $15 as a participatory stipend for voting. The top 10 will be featured on the website.

Semi-final allocation draw

The occurrence of semi-finals was dependent on the number of participants. On October 15, 2019, it was confirmed that there would be two semi-finals after the number of entries reached 37. As the prior winner, Arcadia would automatically qualify for the final and vote in both semi-finals. The top 10 in the semi-finals advance to the final. The top 10 screenshots from each semi-final advance to the final.

On July 28, 2019, the rules regarding non-qualifiers voting in the final was changed. Starting in this contest, even if a participant is eliminated in the semi-finals, they are not required to vote in the final; however, they may do so if they wish as a member of the public.

For the first time, there were pots created for semi-final allocations drawings. The forty semi-finalists had been allocated into five pots, based on aggregate rankings by participant, not by city. Drawing from different pots helps to reduce the chance of lopsided semi-finals by predicted placement from prior contests. The semi-finals were drawn on October 21, 2019 during an informal ceremony on Mumble. Arcadia's draw number in the final was also selected during the ceremony.
