Do you have a favorite building, structure, or landmark? Even if it’s no longer standing or you’ve moved away, architecture marvels can still be meaningful. In this new contest for teen and adult LEGO fans, you are invited to build your most beloved place, city, or building using LEGO bricks. This contest is run by LEGO directly, so the contest is fun and the prizes generous. Check out the details below. 🙂
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE CONTEST – OVERVIEW: What’s your favorite place in the world? What structures, landmarks, or building define it? Whether it’s a well-known location or a beloved childhood haunt, LEGO invites you to build it using LEGO pieces. As long as it’s a real place that means something to you, they want to see it! You are welcome to also take a picture of your model next to its real life counterpart, or include a photo of the real life location for reference.
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE CONTEST – HOW TO ENTER: Build your favorite place, structure or building using LEGO pieces. Take up to five photos (you are welcome to include a picture of your entry with the real life location, or a picture of the real life location for reference) and submit them to the contest. Use the description field to share details about your entry to – then hit “submit”. When you receive a “Success!” pop-up notification after clicking “submit” on the entry submission page, your entry has successfully been submitted. the Rebrick moderation team will review it within 1-3 days (excluding weekends and holidays) to make sure it fits all the contest rules.
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE CONTEST – RULES: Your entry should be a real life location, not a fantasy location. Please do not include LEGO minifigures in your entry. LEGO encourages you to build in the LEGO Architecture style and scale – although this is not a requirement for entry. You can also take a photo of your model with the real life location – just please don’t include yourself in the photo. You can also just include a photo of the location for reference so long as it’s a photo you took yourself. You are still welcome to submit your entry even if the original structure or location is no longer standing. Entries with military or religious 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, submitting entries you did not make yourself could result in your account being removed and all entries being disqualified. 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. You can read the rest of the entry guidelines and rules here.
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE CONTEST – DEADLINE: You must submit your entry by August 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.

This is another fantastic contest by LEGO, and I’m very curious to see the entries and the stories that come with it. It’s a little strange that LEGO allows both LEGO Architecture scale and other scale buildings in the same contest, but hopefully it won’t be too confusing to the participants and the judges. Even if you are not planning to enter the contest, I recommend checking out the entries for some ideas and inspirations for your own future projects. And you can also take a look at the currently available LEGO Architecture sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
