We at ThinkingWithPortals.com are proud to present the Summer Mapping Initiative (http://contest.thinkingwithportals.com/) mapping contest!

Now, you may be asking yourself, "msleeper, just how difficult is this competition? What was in that phonebook of a rules page I just read? Am I in danger?"

Let me answer those questions with a question: who wants to win an Ultimate Portal 2 Gift Pack and have their work spotlighted by Valve on the official Portal 2 Website? If you're interested in participating in this test then read on.

The competition will run from today (Tuesday the 24th of May) to 11:59PM EDT on the 6th of June at which point we will stop accepting submissions from test subjects. This is only two short weeks - there's no time to waste!

We're looking for clever and fun test chambers consistent with the themes in Portal 2 (which means no custom assets!). The top two winning maps will receive the grand prize of the Ultimate Portal 2 Gift Pack, as well as having their maps spotlighted on the official Portal 2 website.

If you haven't read the rules page we linked to above, I urge you to read it now. Thoroughly. Here's the link again, in case you missed it:

Cool. I may add the elevators to my WIP map just because of this.

I was thinking of holding off on map making until the dlc comes out, but this is just the kick I needed. Thanks. "Now where's my notebook..."

Ive been working on a map for a bit now, but since its my first map ever in hammer, dont think I will be winning anything. Plus Im having a bit of trouble with certain parts.

I hope that this time mappers who submit their entires are not left in total silence for 5 months waiting to hear the results. And the winners are given what is promised them in a reasonable time frame.

Ill submit a map but I just want to say that I totally dislike the "must have start and end elevator" requirement. IMO, that stifles a lot of unique, creative ideas and polish for the chambers.

Since it is sponsered by VALVe this time round it should be on time.

(or not, this IS VALVe we are talking about here...)

How exactly do we 'sign up' our entries? Or is uploading to the database all we have to do?

What is actually included in "Ultimate Portal 2 Gift Pack" ?

Question for Valve: are the portal 1 elevators allowed for use as entry and exit elevators?

The reason I ask is that their assets are available for use as seen here:

Over the course of the past two and some change weeks, our 13 judges have spent over a collective 140 hours playing 240 of some of the best custom maps this community has seen. As I have said previously, the turn out for this contest has been amazing and I want to thank each and every one of our participants.

But without carrying on too much, let's get down to business. The first and second place Grand Prize winners of the ThinkingWithPortals.com 2011 Summer Mapping Initiative are Patent Pending (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=861) by ebola with a 4.66 out of 5 (6 votes) and Infinifling (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=602) by MrTwoVideoCards with a 4.62 out of 5 (8 votes). Congratulations guys!

In third place, by mere fractions of points, is Edifice (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=617) by Omnicoder with 4.62 out of 5 (8 votes). Fourth place comes as Delta Bunsen (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=729) by Lobster with 4.58 out of 5 (6 votes), and fifth place in our top 2% is Cubes 'n' Funnels (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=560) by Will T. with 4.50 out of 5 (6 votes).

The top rated Coop maps overall were Redirecting Redirection (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=604) by MrTwoVideoCards in 6th place, Fast Bridge (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=682) by Skotty in 7th place, and Fling Bridge (http://forums.thinkingwithportals.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=588) by Kosire in 11th place.

I am sure everyone is dying to see the full results, and we will be posting it up soon once we figure out the best format to present all of the data. Each map was played by a minimum of 2 judges, and each judge submitted their own score, and since I know many of you would want to know every detail of your map's judgement, we are going to need to release all of the information intelligently.

I would like to thank everyone who participated, as this contest would not be immensely successful without your submissions. I would also like to thank Mevious, Farragar, WinstonSmith, and most of all Nacimota for judging an insane amount of maps and spending so much of your free personal time helping with this. And lastly I would like to thank Chet over at Valve for helping coordinate this contest, bringing exposure to our community and helping the Portal 2 mapping scene to blossom.
