All of the above!

2. Can australians Create? coz i am one of them

3. Rules to size of the map, does bigger mean better chance or ?
Nope, better is better, size is just…

4. Does it have to be real life copy of a city or our imagination?
Either will do!

5. Can we enter more then once?
Sure, each map is a valid entry. Remember; Quality over Quantity.

And unfortunately I'm not eligable to take part of the prize since I am a Paradox Employee ;-) but thanks for thinking of me!
A simply amazing contest! A big hug to the two companies.
Hey, if he lives in that town, winning a trip there might be kind of strange... Maybe design Rio instead. :)
Can maps containing content created by players take part in this contest? I mean, those using the build-addon or regions, created by the players, if the map'll be sent with the addons folder?

i would like to know this as well :D
A great initiative! I just wish I had time to sit down and make a great map.
As someone with no artistic ability who is still trying to figure out how to get an underground metro line to connect to an elevated one, I'm not thrilled with the restriction on this contest, but good luck to those who enter. After visiting Iceland, Norway and Sweden, I'd love to see Helsinki.
LOL i don't think they thought of that. But it is a good idea though. A tour of CO HQ.

Hah, we'll it would be quite a short tour then. Our HQ is not the biggest offices, you know...

And remember we are located in Tampere, which is 1,5 hours train trip from Helsinki ;)
