It’s time for another building contest. This one is going to be epic! You have lots of time to get this one together so make it special.

What is a Winter Playland?

First off it’s a place on your account with “WPBC” in the title.

Example: WPBC Snow Park and Slolam!

It could include some of the following possibilities…

  • A Turkey Dinner at Home
  • Skating pond
  • A snow fort
  • Ski lift
  • Ice sculptures
  • Sleds
  • A snowball fight
  • Gifts under trees
  • … and more! Be creative.

Use existing models and anything published to the Toolbox in your creation. Or, make new models and creations. Entries will be judged according to:

  • Originality (show us something new and exciting)
  • Winteryness (it is a Winter Playland, you know)
  • Fun (is your level fun?)
  • Awesomeness (The “Wow! How did he do that?!” effect)

Ways to win?

1. Win the COOL Hat (not yet created) – This way is easy. Build your WPBC place on your account. Be sure “WPBC” is in the place title because we will be searching by that. Make sure your place is Wintery. Then just wait. Twice during the contest we will deliver a COOL hat to everyone with a Winter Playland place on their account. Once you have the hat, you can change your place.

2. Win The Ice Crown and 200 R$ – This way is harder! To enter to win the Ice Crown you must build an awesome Winter Playland until it is completely finished. Then you can be nominated to be judged. You can nominate other users and ask them to nominate you.

How to nominate? Go to this form and enter the username of your friend with the awesome Winter Playland place. THEIR PLACE MUST BE FINISHED BEFORE YOU ENTER. Tell us why their place is so great. Then the staff will visit the nominated places and judge them.

The staff will visit nominated places every couple days and give out hats ONLY to the best places they see. Once a place has been visited a comment will be left on the event site explaining the result. You can search the site to see if you have been nominated.

How long will this go on?

The contest starts now and goes until the end of December. It’s a really long contest! The first round of COOL hats won’t be delivered until 3 weeks from now. The second round a few weeks after that. So if you only have one place to build on you may want to wait to change it. Don’t get bored of your place! We will announce when the time is coming.

The judging of the nominated places will start on Monday Nov 17, but you do not have to rush. Please take your time to make awesome places for the staff to visit.
