A new build competition is in town and it’s going to be an eye-catching one!
The Colorful Clash 2019 Build Competition, the solo contest in question, has officially started on 22:00 EDT on May 31st under the observant eyes of Exalted and PixelsAndBlocks — the two teams hosting the event. Participants are encouraged to put their building skills to the test for the grand prize of $120 (which is the first place reward) before the deadline of 22:00 EDT on June 9th, or 2:00 GMT for June 10th.
We, together with @PixelsAndBlocks will be hosting a $200USD prize pool build competition from the 1st to the 10th. Follow us here, where the contest details will be released at the beginning of the contest.

However, there is a reason why the contest has ‘Colorful Clash’ in its title, and it has to do with the selected theme for the event!
“The theme for this competition is colorful clash. Both colorful and clash are separate elements that come together to form one complete theme. The colorful element is a literal element, to meet this element of the theme you must use multiple different coloured blocks consistently throughout the build. Only using different shades of the same colour will not meet this element of the theme. The clash element is where you have creative freedom.
You can have a very literal interpretation of clash or a very abstract interpretation of clash. Simply put, it needs to be visually clear something is clashing within your build. You can find more details about the theme in the Theme Details section. We hope that tying two elements together like this to form a theme will allow us to challenge builders in a more unique way. We wish all of you the best of luck in this competition and we hope you will see it as a fun and unique challenge.
The event is happening on the server Builders Refuge, so there are a few steps to take if you’re planning on attending this:
“To enter this build competition simply join the Builders Refuge Minecraft server and enter the following commands:
Connect to Builders Refuge (IP: mc.buildersrefuge.com)
/colorclash then /plot auto
Complete your build in line with the theme on the claimed 151×151 plot”
