To play, you must post your gameplay sketch in the competitions section of the Map Foundry. In the title section, put "World Cities" and then the name of your map.

I can't get it, I have a sketch ready, should I post it in this forum as a topic?
Then every body can see it, shouldn't the sketch be anonymous before voting?

The gameplay part of the contest will not be up for a public vote, but will be shortlisted by the CAs.
To take part, simply post your gameplay schematics in this thread - I'll clarify that in the opening post.

edit: To take part, simply create your entry using media of your choice (even scanned sketches are permissible as long as everything is legible), host your submission using photobucket, imageshack or similar, and post in this thread with a direct link to the image embedded within [bigimg][/bigimg] tags.

What about an apocalyptic spin on moscow, would this be accepted, not really interested in competing for it or anything, but i think it would be cool to do the map, would it be alright if i let someone else enter the map?

Looks like they removed the original thread that started this thing. At least I can't find it.


Do you mean this thread?: http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=127&t=140158

It had a poll on favourite world cities, and the results match up with the cities featured in this contest.

The first phase of the contest is a free for all - anybody can submit a gameplay design (I might even dog out an old draft of a london map to get people started). A shortlist will be selected for the graphics phase of the contest. (ie somebody might pick up your plan and turn it into a nice looking map )

I have some sketches for 2 or 3 of the cities. Can they all be entered or can I only enter for one city?

Could I get a confirmation that the largest possible map that I can post is 1500x1500 pixels?
Don't feel like spamming the forums with lots of white squares ;-)
