Contest theme and rules

Theme: Family Home

Rules: The main objective is to build a family house (semi-detached or detached) out of LEGO bricks. It needs to be in minifig scale. Some examples for this are LEGO creator house models. What those sets lack are minifigures, liveliness, details and action! We want you to add all that to your MOC! Capture everyday life of the family that lives in your house. It may be from any time period - future, current or past, everything is fine. Interior is not necessary, but it will be taken into consideration if you take the time to make it. Only LEGO elements are allowed.

CAD models are not allowed.

Each person may participate with one entry only. Creations that have been posted online before the beginning of this contest (November 12, 2010) are not allowed.

Please post up to three pictures in this group to participate. Do not post pictures which are not for this competition.

Dates:
Start - 12th November 2010.
Deadline - 1st January 2011.
Results - 11th January 2011.

Sponsors and organizers
Competition is sponsored and organized by Brick Architect webshop and Matija Grguric.

Awards:
1st - 6754 - Family Home
2nd 5766 - Log Cabin

Nope. You may build as large as you wish. Or as small as you wish. It just needs to be minifig scaled.

Will the CAD models be allowed? Graphic presentation would be at photorealistic level and there would be building instructions made for judges/organizators.

No, I am sorry, CAD models are not allowed as they use a completely different approach. I don't think it would be fair to either side to mix those two.

@The Big Smile - Those two are OK, but cutting bricks and similar is not allowed. Custom stickers are also OK.

Regarding the deadline - is that the beginning of the day January first, or at the end of the day? What timezone is the deadline in?

I'm afraid my entry (if I can finish it) will be cutting it close...

We won't be that strict for the deadline. This is still a game. So in whatever timezone you are and your flickr time is, you may post by the end of your day, so 23:59:59.

Glad to have made the deadline, if I'd left the building to even a day later than I did I probably wouldn't have made it. And good luck to everybody, I think it's going to be close.
