Would you like to have your LEGO model featured at the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark for all the visitors to see? Here is an opportunity for you! The latest ReBrick contest asks teen and adult LEGO fans to help decorate the LEGO House. LEGO is particularly looking for models in two categories; nature and minifigure-scale interiors. Details of the contest, as well as how to enter, are posted below. 🙂

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – OVERVIEW: The LEGO House is the home of the brick, which wouldn’t be complete without some amazing models created by fans. We want to give you the opportunity to show off your creations for an entire year to all who visit the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark! Entries are called in the following two categories:

  • Nature – including animals, plants, and flowers. Make sure your model’s base is between 4×4 studs (64×32 studs in total), and the model is no more than 60 bricks high. No parts of your model can overhang 64×32 studs, although you can have different parts overhanging if you have a smaller baseplate.
  • Minifigure-Scale Interiors – showcase the inside of a room or a vignette scene in minifigure-scale. Just make sure the baseplate is between 16×8 studs (64×32 studs in total), and the model is no more than 60 bricks high. No parts of your model can overhang 64×32 studs, although you can have different parts overhanging if you have a smaller baseplate.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Build your Nature Scene or Minifigure-Scale Interior, making sure to follow the specific size requirements for each that are mentioned above. Take up to five photos of your creation and submit them to the contest. Make sure to show off all angles of your creation. Use the description field to mention which category your entry belongs to – then hit “submit”. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has been submitted successfully. The ReBrick moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – RULES: Your entry must fit the size requirement for the category you’re submitting it into (see the overview section above for details). Submit one model per entry, into just one category at a time. You may enter as many times as you wish and have the opportunity to win with multiple entries multiple times. Entries with military themes will not be eligible for the contest. Entries containing defamatory or degrading elements will not be eligible for the contest. Entries consisting of or containing copies of any existing third-party work or creation or infringements of any third party intellectual property right will not be eligible for the contest. Entries can be previously built, but cannot be submitted previously in any contest of any kind competing for a prize. Each entry must have been made by the user submitting it. Entries must not contain LEGO elements which have been modified from their original form, including painted or cut elements. Use of non-LEGO elements, such as homemade stickers, rubber bands, or clay is prohibited in this contest. Entrants must be at least 13 years of age at the time of entry. You can read the rest of the entry guidelines and rules here.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by April 2nd, 2018 at 10:00 AM EST. If you are not sure what time zone you are in, you can use an online time-zone converter to make sure you don’t miss the deadline.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – JUDGES: A panel of judges from the LEGO House team will select at least 10 (possibly more, depending on how many entries are received) winners in each category. They will judge entries upon: overall coolness and originality – 25%, most inspired details – 25%, best use of elements – 25%, LEGO humor – 25%.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – PRIZES: There will be a minimum of 10 winners in each category, who will receive the following: The opportunity to have their model exhibited at the LEGO House, including a short description of the model and the name of the builder, with all costs for shipping the model to be provided by the LEGO Group. A signed #21037 LEGO Architecture LEGO House set. If you win with multiple entries, you will have the option of winning a signed #21037 LEGO Architecture LEGO House set with an additional set of your choosing valued at no more than $75 USD.

LEGO HOUSE CONTEST – WINNERS ANNOUNCEMENT: Winners will be contacted on the email address associated with their LEGO ID account after April 13th, 2018 and announced on ReBrick when the winners returned the signed Winner’s Certification Documents. A winner who does not return their Winner’s Certification Document within one week (5 days) of receiving it will be disqualified, and a new winner will be selected.

It’s funny how we were just talking about the LEGO House the other day, then this contest shows up. Is that a sign that we should all pack our bags and visit the LEGO House? But even if you can’t make it personally, maybe through this contest your LEGO model can! Also, remember that The LEGO Ninjago Story & Brickfilming Contest is still open. Good luck if you are entering either or both of them!

What do you think? Are you interested to enter this contest to decorate the LEGO House? Do you have some ideas already of what you want to build? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

Okay, so, if we win we will have to send our moc to Lego? Will we get it back?


brickmaster March 12, 2018 at 1:06 PM

It seems like that. But I don’t see any info on if and when you get it back. Something to consider when entering.


brickmaster March 12, 2018 at 1:10 PM

Found some info on the contest forum. Other people asked the same question. The rebrick admin said that “you will get your model back when the Lego House is finished with the display. They will borrow your model for around a year”.

Cool contest. Might consider it, but I don’t think we have enough extra lego to lend. Too bad because the contest is neat. Why can’t they just rebuild what the winner builds by sharing the building instructions? Doesn’t lego have enough bricks already?

LOL! Yeah, the LEGO House is FULL of bricks! And yeah, I agree that it is a tough choice for someone with a small to medium collection to part with their LEGO pieces for a full year.

“Make sure your model’s base is between 4×4 studs (64×32 studs in total), ”

I don’t understand this sentence

I was wondering about that too, but after thinking about it, I took that to mean that the base has to be in an increments of 4 studs on all sides, with a maximum of 64×32 studs in total.
