Brickstory competition

Posted by ,

Kockice, the Croatian RLUG, is organising a building competition and has asked us to publicise it:

"The idea of this contest is to connect the AFOLs from all over world. Many of us go to Skaerbaek to meet other AFOLs, to see their MOCs and to learn more about their LUGs.

"Our idea for this contest is to get the same people around to do the same thing - to connect, to communicate, to show each other their great MOCs and to talk about their LUGs. The only difference is that this will be via Internet, but the idea is still the same."

Find out how to enter after the break.

Sounds interesting, but it seems a little too geared to one type of creation. "9. Minimum build should be 32X32 studs wide. No Maximum." What about technic or constraction builders who don't really work in studXstud widths and their builds would have weird dimensions?

Cool! Gears are turning about what to build. Looking forward to entering this one and seeing what people come up with!

^^ Stand it on top of said baseplate and if it's bigger it's ok.

Hmmm... some great prizes there.

I might well enter. All of those big sets up for grabs are awesome...

If four judges each nominate five creations each, then how do you know there will be 20 in the final? Do the judges collude to make sure they pick different entries?

Might as well enter, it's not like there is anything to loose.

To CCC - In the first round the judges will work together to select the top 20. For example, judge A can make his own list of 10 favorite entries and nominate the first 5. Then, if judge B has already nominated one of the entries from judge A's top 5, judge A will simply nominate the next entry on his list. In the final round, each judge will vote on their own.

Do you think we can make our own MOC with Science Fiction elements so long as they fit one of the themes of th e contest?

I would assume so. I think the "be creative" clause covers that.

With contests never allowing digital builds, there's not much point in entering. I'd end up spending the same amount of money on pieces for my entry as I would just buying the grand prize.

Is there an age restriction or country restriction? Have I got to be a certain age to participate?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, I was wondering the same as @Ben Sanders. Is there an age restriction?

To Ben and Richard - Of course not. Everyone can join. :)

My question is about the 4th theme - "One moment in time" - is this supposed to be historical moment, some moment in the past or just random moment from any timeline? What exactly are we to create if chosen this theme?

To Ookamieq - It's all up to you. You can choose any moment you find meaningful and recognizable and it could be related to whatever you want - science, sports, nature, technology, politics, everyday life... If it is related to art (movies, music...) you can choose category number 3 (for example if you want to build some memorable moment from TV history).

32x32 seems quite big - especially for younger builders and those of us not endowed with vast collections of multiple copies of pieces.

Can the creation be smaller than 32x32 but be presented on a 32x32 baseplate? For example, a character in a pose (from History) or a machine sitting on some grass (a 32x32 green baseplate)?

It feels as if you are excluding a lot of possible entrants by your demands on 32x32. Was it the intention to only get 'serious' builders involved?

Thanks in advance.

To Nibbos - the required size is one of the things you have to be creative about. :)
Here are some examples of MOCs that fit the size, but aren't necessarily big. Also, each of these creations (boat, truck, monster...) could stand on their own, but the scenery around them really makes them look extra special.

Your examples answered my question perfectly.
Many thanks.
All I need now is the inspiration, time and bricks to get me started.
Can I ask for a few weeks off work, do you think?
