Ten years ago, the first LEGO Modular Building was unveiled. Now, LEGO is asking you to make a mini version of your own LEGO Modular Building for a chance to win all the LEGO Modular Buildings released to date – yes, all of them. This is one of the most amazing contests ever run by LEGO, and an incredible opportunity for LEGO fans to show off their talent, and win one of the most coveted collection of LEGO sets. Details below. 🙂
➡ LEGO MINI MODULAR CONTEST – DESCRIPTION: Help LEGO celebrate 10 amazing years of LEGO Modular Buildings by sharing your own mini model of your own modular building in the Mini Building Madness Contest specially designed for LEGO fans.
➡ LEGO MINI MODULAR CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Create your mini model. 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 tell LEGO about your model – 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. LEGO’s moderation team will review it within 1-3 working days to make sure it fits all the contest rules.
➡ LEGO MINI MODULAR CONTEST – RULES: Your entry must be 8×8 studs, no larger or smaller, have a sidewalk which is 2 studs wide, and have a 1 x 2 LEGO Technic brick (brick with 1 or 2 holes) with Technic pins, positioned 2-3 studs in from the back and 4 studs from the front to connect with other LEGO Mini Modulars. There are no height requirements. (Below is a picture for reference.) Your entry can be a corner or middle Modular Building. Entries should be a similar scale to #10230 LEGO Mini Modulars and not include LEGO minifigures. Your entry must not contain copies of any existing third party work or creation, or infringements of any third party intellectual property right. This includes the use of other brands, or even LEGO IP brands, including LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Lord of the Rings, etc. Elements from these properties can be used, but avoid using elements which clearly come from or only appear in these sets. You can enter as many entries as you would like, but only one entry per person will be considered when winners are selected. 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. Use of LEGO Digital Designer to create your entry is allowed, along with photo editing software or adding effects to your entry. Entries must not contain LEGO elements which have been modified from their original form, including painted or cut elements. Entrants must be at least 13 years of age at the time of entry.

As you can see, this contest is incredible in so many ways! You can build your own LEGO Mini Modulars, and you have a chance to win the entire LEGO Modular Building series, including the highly coveted early sets that were retired a long time ago. If you would like to participate in this contest, please make sure you read all the rules very carefully so you don’t accidentally disqualify your project. And you can also check out the current entries for some inspiration and ideas.
