From the 50 finalists, 1 grand prize winner will be selected per country. In addition to a copy of 10222 – Winter Village Post Office, grand prize winners will have their stamp design featured on the late holiday catalog for their country along with a professionally designed and framed LEGO mosaic of their design.

  • Where: The US/UK/Germany. These are the only countries that mail a late holiday catalogue.
  • When: We will be accepting entries for the contest September 1-30 and selecting the finalists & winners for each country the first week of October.
  • How: Consumers must simply visit http://shop.LEGO.com/Design-Challenge in the US and UK, or http://shop.LEGO.com/Designwettbewerb in Germany to download the official entry form. They or their parent/guardian must complete the form and email it along with their stamp design to the email address designated for their country. No purchase is required and there will be no physical entries collected.

Would I be able to use a white cardboard background like Huw uses to photograph minifigures, or does everything have to be LEGO? The FAQs weren't very clear on that.

I'd love to enter, but I don't quite get it. Have we to draw a picture and e-mail a photo to LEGO, or have we to photograph a brickbuilt winter scene?

Help would be appreciated!

@Gregorovich: you print out the template, then you can make a photo, CG pic, or drawing, and send it in on tthe template..

Why does lego need 300dpi? dpi doesn't have to do with digital resolution but, with printing it. Lego should accept 96dpi and then just change it when they format the magazine. It would make this a hell of a lot easier.
