=== Postponement of the contest ===
 +
 
 +
When the contest was announced, there was concern about OptiFine and shaders not being available for the contest as it had not been updated for Minecraft 1.15.2 yet. On March 6, 2020, a poll was put in the events channel in the MRT Discord regarding the future of the contest with four options available: to continue the contest as is and allow shaders and renders, to continue the contest as a "no shaders and renders" contest ([[Foresne]] had already submitted a screenshot and thus would have had to retract it), to postpone the contest until OptiFine updates for shaders, and none of the above. The next day, with the poll results showing 19 votes for postponing the contest, compared to the eight votes for the second and third options, respectively, the contest was postponed on March 7, 2020. Joining and submitting screenshots closed and is set to re-open once OptiFine updates for shader compatibility. Participants who join prior to the announcement kept their participatory status and would be asked to reconfirmation of their participation when joining re-opened.
 +
 
 +
Prior to the postponement, the following were the dates listed for deadlines and events: joining closing on March 20, 2020, submissions closing on March 25, 2020, the voting period for the semi-finals as March 25, 2020 to April 3, 2020, the semi-finals on April 4, 2020, the voting period for the finals as April 4, 2020 to April 17, 2020, and the final on April 18, 2020.
 +
 
 +
On March 26, 2020, an OptiFine build with working shaders was released. On March 27, 2020, the contest's new dates were announced.

Production

The contest was teased on the MRT Discord on February 19, 2020 with an incomplete image of the logo, missing the word 'ARCADIA' and the MRTvision Screenshot Contest logo. The contest, with its logo, was officially announced on February 26, 2020. The logo is an edited version of an online image edited by MinecraftYoshi26. The official slogan of the contest was announced approximately two hours later.

Venue

The venue of the contest, the Champion's Bowl, in eastern Arcadia.

The contest's results ceremony is set to take place for the second time in Arcadia, following Arcadia's victory in the previous edition with the screenshot "15 Million Tons of Economic Power", taken by lil_shadow59. The most recent time the city hosted the contest was for the fifth contest.

It is set to take place at Arcadia's 2,688-seat amphitheater the Champion's Bowl, which was constructed in 2020 for the contest. Located in the east side of the town, it is a large, open-air, outdoor amphitheater. The amphitheater is based off of the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. It is close to the MRT Southern Line at SE20. The venue was announced on March 3, 2020.

Format

Per usual, the contest will feature 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 will be required to vote in their semi-final, or may face disqualification, being banned from participating in future contests, or paying a fine. Per usual, there was no theme.

The deadline to join was announced as March 20, 2020. The deadline to send in a screenshot was announced as March 25, 2020. 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 $3,000. 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.

The occurrence of semi-finals will occur, pending there are enough participants.

Postponement of the contest

When the contest was announced, there was concern about OptiFine and shaders not being available for the contest as it had not been updated for Minecraft 1.15.2 yet. On March 6, 2020, a poll was put in the events channel in the MRT Discord regarding the future of the contest with four options available: to continue the contest as is and allow shaders and renders, to continue the contest as a "no shaders and renders" contest (Foresne had already submitted a screenshot and thus would have had to retract it), to postpone the contest until OptiFine updates for shaders, and none of the above. The next day, with the poll results showing 19 votes for postponing the contest, compared to the eight votes for the second and third options, respectively, the contest was postponed on March 7, 2020. Joining and submitting screenshots closed and is set to re-open once OptiFine updates for shader compatibility. Participants who join prior to the announcement kept their participatory status and would be asked to reconfirmation of their participation when joining re-opened.

Prior to the postponement, the following were the dates listed for deadlines and events: joining closing on March 20, 2020, submissions closing on March 25, 2020, the voting period for the semi-finals as March 25, 2020 to April 3, 2020, the semi-finals on April 4, 2020, the voting period for the finals as April 4, 2020 to April 17, 2020, and the final on April 18, 2020.

On March 26, 2020, an OptiFine build with working shaders was released. On March 27, 2020, the contest's new dates were announced.
