2011 LEGO Design Challenge

Postby Aliencat » Thu Sep 01, 2011 8:06 am

Hey everyone, take a look at the announcement below:

Andrew Arnold (TLC) wrote:LEGO is asking consumers ages 6 + to design a LEGO themed postage stamp to be featured in the Late Holiday Catalogue.

For each country there will be 50 finalists selected to receive a copy of 10222.
25 will be for ages 6-14 and 25 will be from ages 15 & up. From the 50 finalists, 1 grand prize winner will be selected per country. In addition to a copy of 10222 – Winter Village Post Office, grand prize winners will have their stamp design featured on the late holiday catalog for their country along with a professionally designed and framed LEGO mosaic of their design.

Where: The US/UK/Germany. These are the only countries that mail a late holiday catalogue.

When: We will be accepting entries for the contest September 1-30 and selecting the finalists & winners for each country the first week of October.

How: Consumers must simply visit shop.LEGO.com/Design-Challenge (Germany: shop.LEGO.com/Designwettbewerb) to download the official entry form. They or their parent/guardian must complete the form and email it along with their stamp design to the email address designated for their country. No purchase is required and there will be no physical entries collected.

Looks like a very interesting challenge, and that prize is great!
Give it a shot, all you designers out there :D

If any of you make something for this challenge, I would love to see you post it here (it's OK if you wait for the challenge to end before you post your ideas online).

Interesting contest.

Although I'm not eligible to enter as I'm not from the three aforementioned countries, I do have a quick question. Are these designs supposed to be illustrated, or are they brick-built designs which will in turn be illustrated by LEGO's graphic design team? Just curious.

My understanding is that it can be either. But if it's illustrated, it has to be something that could be build with LEGOs. Seems rather broad to me, but should be interesting. I'll submit an entry if I can find time before BrickCon.
