It’s time to turn on creative mode and start making things for our first-ever Minecraft Challenge! Minecraft is a game that lets you create an entire digital world, and in this challenge, we want you to see what the game inspires you to create, either in the digital or physical realm. Prizes include a Kindle Fire HD 7 Tablet, Minecraft books, and more.

Your Instructable should be original, easy to reproduce, and have lots of clear photos, or screenshots, that document your work. We want to see you apply your love of Minecraft creatively. Good luck!

Please be sure that your entry into the contest contains original photos and text. Entries without original photos and text will be denied.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
