If you’re not in, you can’t win!
To be part of the 2016 Soundwaves Minecraft Project, first of all you’ll need a ticket. Where? How? See our Facebook Page for details! (If Sabine gets to it, she’ll put up a link here, too, as soon as the tickets are live.)
To be in the competition, you simply have to protect your residence and put a sign in front of it to let us know 1. its name and 2. whether it’s Skerries or Fantasy or Arts. That’s it! We’ll sort into the right age group for you.
The categories are:
A. Skerries (could be a recreation of the mills, a specific shop, the tourist office, a school, the Martello tower…)
There will be 3 age groups, based on your class / year in school.
B. Fantasy Builds (could be a turtle castle, a cinema, a swimming pool, an alien spaceship – anything that doesn’t exist in Skerries of 2016)
There will be 3 age groups, based on your class / year in school, same as for Category A, Skerries.
C. NEW! A Piece of Art (a famous painting, pixel art, a sculpture… whatever you can think of – art for art’s sake!)
And, you guessed it: There will be 3 age groups, based on your class / year in school, same as for Category A, Skerries, and for Category B, Fantasy Builds.
In more detail:
- Be part of the Soundwaves Minecraft Project (see here how), and create a building or two. Make sure you protect your creations! How? See your ticket or here.
- In Minecraft, put a sign in front of your creation(s) with its name and the category / categories you are entering.
You can have up to three creations, but no more than one in each category.

- Come to the Little Theatre on Sunday, 25 September, for the Minecraft Wrap Party (11 a.m. to 1.30 p.m., entrance included in your server pass).

If you can’t come in person, please send us an email by Sat 3 p.m. so we know and can make alternative arrangements.
- Any difficulties, mail us, we’ll help if we can at all! email@example.com.
And the prizes are…
…not the most important aspect, we think! It’s really about the honour of having won one of the Skerries Minecraft Competition prizes! Plus if you come to the Minecraft party on Sun 25 September, and are in the competition, you will get a small (but exclusive) fridge magnet each!
