Miners and digital designers of MinecraftTM will bring their creativity to the simulated world, as the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) calls for a virtual recreation to mark the 160th anniversary of the Eureka Stockade.
With over 100 million registered users worldwide, MinecraftTM will be the platform for M.A.D.E’s national competition. It will give Australian users the chance to get imaginative as they build their interpretations of the Stockade, a key event in the development of Australian democracy and national identity.
In partnership with The-Core and Federation University, participants 18 years or under must submit their entries to M.A.D.E by November 1, with the winner receiving their choice of either an apple or android tablet.
Competitors will build their stockades on a custom Minecraft™ server called MADECORE, a digital environment where all competitors can interact, collaborate and build on ideas from one another. The winning model will be the one that builds a fun, creative version of the Eureka Stockade.
For further information on judging criteria, prizes and registration just visit the M.A.D.E website. Good luck Minecrafters!
