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.

Are there any limits of size?
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
Nope. You may build as large as you wish. Or as small as you wish. It just needs to be minifig scaled.

Really wanted to dive back in to some modern architecture. I think I've found my opportunity.

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.
K. Jewell 5 years ago
What if we have something dirty in a bedroom ;)
NewRight 5 years ago
Could would use parts from custom resellers such as BrickForge, BrickArms, etc.?

Great Contest! I'm in..... Current building plans have to wait for a while!
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
@Newright - No, I would like just official LEGO elements.

Very nice idea!
I'm also in! Do modified Lego elements count? (cut lego stickers and cut flex tubing)
Dutch-builder 5 years ago
If you decorate it... do you get extra points?
Dutch-builder 5 years ago
sorry, just read it :p
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
@The Big Smile - Those two are OK, but cutting bricks and similar is not allowed. Custom stickers are also OK.
_.Astro._ 5 years ago

And once again; this is a great contest idea! Thanks for hosting it! =)

when can we post our entries?
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
You may post whenever you want, just before the deadline.
danny316p 5 years ago
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...
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
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.
.SilentMode 5 years ago
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.

I'm just waiting on one last Bricklink order before I'm done - hopefully it arrives in time!
Dutch-builder 5 years ago
^ me too... need the windows still :p

But i think the time-zone between the Netherlands and america is about 8 hours... isn't that a problem then?
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
OK, then let the deadline be 23:59 Greenwich, London time - 0 GMT
Haystack Hair 5 years ago
Can we post WIP photos or is it only finished houses allowed?
admin
Matija Grguric PRO 5 years ago
Only finished please.
Haystack Hair 5 years ago
Right ok, thanks for telling me. I don't think I'll have time to finish my house for the deadline though :S ah well.
_.Astro._ 5 years ago
Just to let you know, I won't be entering the contest, because I don't have enough of the pieces I need. Thanks anyway! If there's one next year I'll try to enter. Good luck to everyone and a happy new year!
