THEME
The theme for this mapping contest is HOLIDAYS. Despite being in December, this can pertain to any known holiday. You could design a map around a first-person snowball fight, an epic Easter egg hunt, or even a nice RPG about staying home on Yom Kippur. This does not force anyone to stick to a single genre, as long as the theme relates to holidays.

JUDGING
Theme: 10
Does your map follow the theme? It is a pretty easy theme to follow so this should be a free 10 points. Any map getting zero in this category will not be judged any further. Seriously.

Professionalism: 15
How well is the map made? Does it have glitches? Does it flow well? How does the terrain look? Is all the text spell checked? If there is a custom UI, does it look slick or is it disheveled?

Fun: 15
Will I play this map again? Was it too buggy that I couldn’t play it at all? This will be a big factor in deciding the winner, especially with a theme like this.

Originality: 10
Is this original? Am I going to wish I had come up with the idea, first? Did you take one of my ideas in the theme description?

Total: 50 points

RULES
  • The map must be submitted by January 8th, at 11:59:59 PM Pacific time (PST). They can either be posted here, PMed to me, or hosted at the SEN Database.
  • Any map size is allowed.
  • The map must not have been started before the contest.
  • You may submit as many copies of the map as you want. Only the last one received will be judged.
  • No stolen maps.
  • No editing someone else's map. The map must have been made by you, and you alone.
  • Team projects must consist of two people maximum. Prizes will be split amongst both team members.

REWARDS
First Place: 200 minerals, 4 Contest Points
Second Place: 150 minerals, 3 Contest Points
Third Place: 100 minerals, 2 Contest Points

Yes, but I figure most people would have more time to cram in those 3 weeks given that they are on vacation from school/work. This theme is also pretty simple, so you could bust something out in a day that could be fun.

Also, the January contest will last until the end of January, and they will go back to actually being monthly from then on.

Eel - Christmas Edition and Zealot Christmas Defense should be the first two submissions :awesome:

Are we allowed to have multiple submissions for these competitions? Will only one get placed?

lol another reason not to celebrate the holidays... with your family at least :P

Truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with a seat missing, but it hurts.

Just enter... seriously, it's not like anyone will send a complaint to the Office of SEN Contests' Submissions. >_>

Perhaps. It couldn't be judged or awarded anything. If I have time I might throw something together.

My map is going well. Only missing some polish.
Can I ask the judges to play with a minimum of 4 players to judge the map?

Map published under the name "Angelic Crown".
As requested, please play with a minimum of 4 players.

For the curious among you, as usual, the map is completely Open Source, so have fun digging through my triggers. ^^

@Devlin: Forget about the map I've sent you via PM.

EDIT: After reading the rules... it looks like I am not allowed to only publish, so here it is as an attachment.
