IMPORTANT UPDATE: THE JUDGE'S PROCESSING TIME HAS BEEN EXTENDED DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. PLEASE CHECK BACK REGULARLY FOR MORE INFO. EXPECT A RELEASE THIS WEEKEND.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to bring to you our first Odamex contest! This contest is designed for mappers who wish to have their wads possibly displayed in tournament play during Odamex's visit to MAGFest in January. Here's the rundown:

What to do: Create a Doom 2 deathmatch map designed for one on one play, but still appropriate for up to four players.

Requirements:
-Map must be made specifically for this contest. Not based on any maps already available.
-Must promote Odamex and MAGFest through use of the provided resources.
-Must be Odamex compatible. No Hexen/ZDoom format maps.
-No custom resources other than those provided.
-No self promotion in map. No name references or anything that will specifically give away your identity.
-Do not promote or make your entry available to the general public before the judging process ends.
-One entry per individual.

Any violation of the given requirements can and may result in the disqualification of your entry.

Contest Dates:

Judges: A panel of five judges will each assign every entry a rating of one to five. Judges will have no prior knowledge of map authors. Additionally, judges will not be publically named until the date of release.

Prizes:
1st Place - The showcased map during MAGFest 1 on 1 tournament, an Odamex shirt, and the map01 slot in the wad.

5th - 10th Places - Used during non-tournament rotations at the MAGFest Odamex table.

Heh.
And now a picture for the frame we set aside
Below the bassline a secret place awaits for us to hide
To pass the time as the war goes on-and-on
Post-apocalyptic sunset, Post-apocalyptic dawn
