Planet Minecraft's ninth Project Contest was titled "Head into the Clouds" for a very good reason. The theme of this project revolved around constructing original concepts on a supplied floating island custom map. While creators were encouraged to expand upon the original design of the floating island, the condition that they keep most of the original terrain was always present.

If you were worried about the winners using mods or texture packs, fret not. According to the rules, third party texture packs, existing content, scripting, importing, mods, and photo manipulation were not allowed to be used in this contest. Using any of the aforementioned creation techniques are grounds for disqualification - even after the submission period was over. After having to inspect nearly 200 entries, you can't really blame the judges for dropping the disqualification hammer the moment they detect foul play.
