ZomMods Contest Announcement & Rules
The purpose of this contest is to make the best map you can that fits the theme given below.
Theme of the map: Survival type zombie playground*. Example: The roof of Mercy Hospital where there are ramps and walkways connecting different areas. Get creative with the layout and what would make it fun to just run around survive in a small to medium area. You may place a buyable ending in the map but it is not mandatory and won’t be factored into the judging.
This mapping contest is being hosted by ZomMods.com and is sponsored by UGX-Mods.com.
The way this contest will work is that if you are interested in entering you will need to go to [You are not allowed to view external links.

From there, go to www.ugx-mods.com and start a WIP page in the new Contest Entries section so you can show regular updates of your map and strike fear into the hearts of competing mappers. The contest will officially begin July 1st, 2013 and will end August 31st, 2013 at midnight.
