Mojang and Microsoft are asking fans to participate this year in a couple of ways. Ahead of the show, you can submit your ideas for panels that you'd like to see. Those that are chosen will be recorded and shown during the stream. If you're the creative type, you can also create a Minecraft-themed costume and submit a picture of it to Mojang. If you're among the team's favorites, you'll win a prize an be flown out to Minecon to appear on the live stream.

This is the second year that Minecon will be a live-streamed virtual event instead of a physical convention. The team at Mojang is promising there will be plenty of live gameplay, chats with popular members of the community, and details about new stuff coming to Minecraft throughout the 90-minute event.
