    The Level Generation Competition, part of the
    IEEE CIS-sponsored 2010 Mario AI Championship, was to
    our knowledge the world’s first procedural content generation
    competition. Competitors participated by submitting level generators
    — software that generates new levels for a version of
    Super Mario Bros tailored to individual players’ playing style.
    This paper presents the rules of the competition, the software
    used, the scoring procedure, the submitted level generators and
    the results of the competition. We also discuss what can be
    learnt from this competition, both about organizing procedural
    content generation competitions and about automatically generating
    levels for platform games. The paper is co-authored by
    the organizers of the competition (the first three authors) and
    the competitors.
