In the latest Lego Magazine I noticed a small, hard-to-see ad for a LEGO Creator Competition which I immediately checked out because there are some great prizes involved. 

It turns out it is an ongoing competition run by LEGO and allows fans (young and old) to design a model on a specific topic, upload it to the LEGO website and then share it with others.

The model is then rated by other fans and the winners each month are judged by professional LEGO designers.

This month’s topic is Houses while last month’s topic was Creatures and then Vehicles before that. The competition goes all year so make sure to check out the entry page each month.

The bad news is that the competition is only open to USA, United Kingdom and Germany – which is rather sad considering the ad was place in a LEGO magazine distributed to Australian and NZ fans!

If you live in Australia or NZ please join me in contacting LEGO about this so we can enter!

  • Freecall (AUSTRALIA): 1800 683 100
  • Freecall (NZ): 0800 534 643

The Lego Movie Logo

Lego Movie Logo & ReBrick Competition

The Lego Movie LogoHi all. Just a quick post to share the new Lego Movie Logo (see the image at right!) and a Lego movie competition on ReBrick.

By creating a short film based around the storyline for the upcoming Lego movie, you could win a chance to have your short film seen in the movie!

More details can be found in the press release below or by visiting ReBrick.

Lego Movie Competition

Beginning March 25, LEGO fans registered worldwide on ReBrick.com will have a one-of-a-kind, hands-on opportunity to take part in the growing excitement for The LEGO Movie by creating a 15-30 second video clip based on its story, in the “LEGO ReBrick Movie Competition.”

The winning video could be featured in the film, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures, opening February 7, 2014.

The fan-produced clips will relate to an exciting scene in the film, in which the citizens of the LEGO universe rally to prevent an unspeakable disaster. They do this by quickly disassembling the elements of their environments, brick by brick, and rebuilding them into fantastic and fun hybrid vehicles and tools—the stranger and more innovative, the better, like rocket/dragons or butterfly/speedboats—to take part in an epic battle.

Using only LEGO bricks and non-licensed LEGO minifigures, contestants will select a character and set their action sequence in one of their favorite LEGO worlds, such as LEGO City, Space, Pirates, Western, Vikings, Dino, Castle, and others. After building and recording their LEGO designs, they will upload the video to YouTube, and bookmark it on the ReBrick.com Building Challenge page, where it will be open for voting from the entire ReBrick membership. The 25 videos earning the most “Likes” will ultimately be reviewed for creativity, originality, theme and suitability for the film by a panel of judges, including Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, writers/directors of The LEGO Movie.

The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip for two to Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California, for a VIP Tour; a meeting with the directors, to participate in a LEGO build; an exclusive LEGO film camera designed and built by the official LEGO model shop; plus souvenir items from the movie’s set, signed by the designers. His or her winning entry may also be edited into the film’s big battle sequence. Second and third place winners will also be honored, as well as winners of bi-weekly prizes selected during the challenge’s six-week run, for a range of additional prizes, including tickets to the Studio’s tour, The LEGO Movie merchandise, a $200 gift card for the Studio’s online store, and a feature spot on The Official LEGO Channel on YouTube.

All entrants must be at least 16 years old and be registered on the LEGO fansite ReBrick.com. Submissions will be accepted from March 25, 2013, at 9:00 A.M., until May 6, 2013, at 8:59 A.M., EDT. Videos must be between 15-30 seconds and be captured using a camera that is at least 3.2 megapixels, and framed to fit within a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. Submissions must contain only LEGO elements and figures with no customized parts, must follow the ReBrick House Rules, and must be suitable for children.
