Due to the fact that only three maps have been submitted by one author, we decided to extend the competition for another two months. So the closing date now will be the August 1st 2009 and the Winners will be announced one day later: August 2nd 2009.
More information on the competition is available here: TB3 Map Competition. This page also contains a lot of useful information for mapping newbie's, so don't hesitate to give it a try and create your own little map for Trek Battles.
Edit: Also this is the official question topic now.
