A Jury will attribute a score for each submission.
This Jury is composed by:

  • BDcraft users (registered users can give 1 diamond for each submission they like)
  • One neutral person toward Minecraft who will give a score for each submission
  • One artist who will give a score for each submission
  • Sphax who will give a score for each submission

The scores of each judge will be reduced between 0 and 100 and then summed (which will give a score between 0 and 400).


The 3 participants with the highest score will participate in the final toss for the podium.
A 4th participant will be selected at random for the 4th position.
