Welcome to the osu!Interntional mapping contest!
This post is the official post for the contest, any updates or changes will be posted here!


Current Stage: Contest Ended, Thanks for Participating!
Winners are located at the bottom of the post!

The Applications close on the 8th of July at 14:00 GMT
The contest begins on the 10th of July at 14:00 GMT and will end on the 24th of July at 14:00 GMT



Please read the two boxes below to familiarize yourself with the contest.

Q: What is this contest and what is osu!International?
A: osu!International is a discord server solely focused on unity and mapping. This mapping contest is its celebration for surpassing 100 users! Keep in mind this is an unofficial mapping contest!

Q: Did I have to be a part of the server before this got announced to enter?
A: Not at all! This contest is open for everyone!

Q: Do I have to join the server to participate?
A: Answer is no and yes. If you don't feel like joining the server since maybe you're in too many already or feel like you don't want to be part of the osu!International server then you are free not to join, although not joining will cut you out of important announcements and a contest specific chat room where you can discuss the contest with other contestants!

Q: How do I join the server?
A: Go to the registrations tab, there is a link there that will lead you to a register form where you can register yourself and your team! Afterwhich you will be given a invite link which you can share ONLY with your team.

Q: I'm banned, can I still participate?
A: Yes of course! But keep in mind that if you decide to participate you will not receive rewards if your team wins!

Q: Does my teammate have to be the same nationality as I am?
A: Not at all, you can assemble a team no matter how far away you are from each other nor how close. The point is to unite with your friends and form a team!

Q: What is the song, is it going to be long?
A: The song will be revealed with the start of the contest it's genre is artcore and the song isn't going to be long, it'll be around 2 min!

Q: How does this contest work?
A: This contest works like this: You will have to find a minimum of 1 friend and maximum of 3 friends (This is required since unity is the theme of the osu!International server and this is what is being created here by inviting your friends to join) to gather together and map a full set of the given song. This can range from a Easy and Normal difficulty spread up to Normal, Hard, Insane and Extra difficulty spread (this solely depends on your team size!) After that's done, you send over the .osu files to me. Everything is then compiled and judged!

Q: If I apply as a judge, but don't get chosen ... can I still participate?
A: Yes! there are no restrictions in how you participate in the contest, if you don't get chosen as one of the judges you will still have at least 4 days to apply as a contestant with a team!

Q: Can I make a Mania/Taiko/CTB set?
A: No! this contest is only for the osu!std mode only! Although other mods may also be included in future osu!International contests depending on how this one goes.

Q: Can I just map a single difficulty mapset?
A: No! This contests theme is revolved around unity and teamwork, therefore mapping a single difficulty without a team is breaking that rule!

Q: Can I collab the diffs with my team?
A: Yes! You can collab every difficulty or map 1 each, 2 each or 1 and a half each. The choice is up to you to decide! Collaborations are allowed and even encouraged!

Q: So what if there are only 2 of us in the team?
A: If you cannot find more people or others are already in a team, then you could map 2 diffs each or collaborate on each difficulty! You may also choose to map all 3/4 diffs.

Q: Can I use my own custom hitsounds?
A: No! The reason for this is because the entries are submitted in the .osu format. You may only use custom hitsounds provided by us in the contest .osz!

Q: What are the winner prizes?
A: The winners are going to receive supporter badges and the first place mapset is going to be pushed into the ranking section! I will also try my hardest to provide a profile badge to the winners, there will most likely be only one profile badge provided to the team captain but nothing is confirmed yet!
KEEP IN MIND: THESE ARE RULES AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY THEY BE BROKEN!

  1. The diffs must have a reasonable spread - That means having a spread that matches the ranking criteria. So stuff like 4 extras isn't allowed and will result in a disqualification. Basically the spread can go from a Easy, Normal to a Normal, Hard, Insane, Extra. All acceptable difficulty spreads will be shown below the rules! Make sure you familiarize yourself with them, since if a no-acceptable spread is mapped your map will be disqualified!
  2. 2-4 members per team required - This is a teamwork based contest so it will rely on teamwork based effort to make the diffs required.
  3. Copying other peoples work is prohibited - Copying other peoples work is strictly forbidden because the whole point of the contest is to be unique and fair with everyone and most importantly to show off your skill, not somebody else's! If we or the judges find out your work has been copied, your entire team gets disqualified. So keep that in mind!
  4. Submissions will not be accepted after the deadline - Everybody will have the same time to map the set so it will ultimately become unfair if somebody had more time than the others. Therefore, after the deadline any submitted mapsets will be disqualified.
  5. Custom hitsounds outside of the provided ones are prohibited - Name speaks for itself, reason for that is to avoid huge internet usage for the judges and again to avoid less things getting lost whilst compiling all entries. You may only use custom hitsounds provided in the contest .osz!
  6. Changing the mp3 or timing of the .osz is prohibited - Name speaks for itself, reason for that is to avoid any complications during the judging process since you will be submitting .osu rather than .osz.
  7. The osu!Standard Ranking Criteria and General Ranking Criteria are in effect for this contest - As you may know the #1 is to push the mapset to the ranked section, we cannot do that if you don't obey the Ranking Criteria.
  8. You have to have a team name - If you are registering as a contestant, you will get the option to choose a team name for you and your group of friends. Doing this will save time during the judging process as it's easier to identify people by their team name rather than individual participants names.

Hello everyone!


Today I'm proud to announce a newly formed mapping contest that was built from scratch up to this with me and my fellow friend organisers. We tried to go for something unique and new to offer everyone something new to participate in! Below you will find the most important information about How to participate; How to apply as a judge; What prizes will be given out to the winners; etc.




Format
Since this is a newly formed contest let me do a quick run down of how things are going to work.


  1. Register as a contestant through the given link down below to join our Discord. Joining the server will allow you to stay up to date with any news regarding the contest (all new information will be posted in the server). It will also allow you to meet up with the osu!International community! So make sure to join to stay up to date!
  2. The base .osz file will be released at the beginning of the contest at a specific date. The link to the .osz will only be available to those in the discord server.
  3. From the moment the contest begins the contestants have a total of 120 hours (or 5 days) to map a minimum of 2 difficulties and a maximum of 4 difficulties depending on their team size.
  4. Once the contestants finish mapping their set, they should submit their individual .osu files to me via Discord DM's or via osu! PM's.
  5. After the 120 hour time period has ended, no more entries will be accepted and any that are submitted past the deadline will be automatically disqualified. Judges will be given anonymous .osz sets and in the following weeks they will make up their scores based on their thoughts.
  6. Once the judging period has concluded, I'll compile the results and release them to the public.


    Please Note: If any changes occur to your teams status, e.g. one of your team members cannot participate because of such and such reason or a person joined your team after the application was sent. Please report this to me! I keep a log of every team registered, but as you may know sometimes things may happen between people and I don't find out, so please let me know whenever something changes.


Prizes
  1. 1st Place - 4 months of supporter to each team member in the winning set, winning mapset gets pushed to the pending section after the end of the contest and eventually after a short period of time it will be ranked by dedicated contest Beatmap Nominators and a profile badge for the team members!
  2. 2nd Place - 2 months of supporter to each team member, a free mod from one tier 1 dedicated contest Beatmap Nominator (no icon guarantee).
  3. 3rd Place - 1 month of supporter to each team member


Registration
Please follow this link to register for the osu!International Mapping Contest: here
Complete the form as a contestant and follow the link at the end of the application to the server. All information will be available for you via the server. Only the captain should register, meaning that one person only should register their whole team and then provide the rest of the team members with the invite link.
If you are applying as a Judge then fill out the form as a Judge Applicator.
If you wish just to join the osu!International community please fill out the forum as a Community member.

Note: Even if you are already in the osu!International Discord server you still have to complete the forum to register for the contest!


Judges
NOTE: Judge Testing will begin on the 3rd of July at 19:00 GMT Time and will close on the 6th of July at 19:00 GMT time
You may apply as a Judge now! Go to the Registration tab for more info


Everyone gets a chance to apply as a judge, again the theme of the contest is unity! More or less unity falls under equality too, therefore we are giving everyone a equal chance to participate wherever they want.
The judge application will test your skills at judging and if you have what it takes to become the contest judge.
You will have a total of 72 hours to complete your application. After the time period of 72 hours has concluded any forms submitted past the deadline will be automatically disqualified.

All applications will be reviewed by me and Rizen after which the 5 chosen judges will be announced here and on the Discord server. Shortly after the .osz for the contestants will be released!

JUDGE PICKS FINALISED
APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED

No, not at all! You can have people in your team only from your country or vice versa, there's no restrictions!
