This is anwered in the rules, for which categories it is allowed and which categories not ;)

Well done to all the winners, and a big thank you to everyone else who entered! As with last year I know i'm leaving with a lot more inspiration than when I went in.

Thanks to the admins too, for putting the contest on! :D

Yes, this is the problem with Poles. They come out of nowhere and score at the contests :-)

But seriously, we hope to post soon an article here explaining how this happen. It's quite interesting story behind.

Big thanks to all the people who helped make this contest possible. The prize donators, judges, fellow contestants and to all supporters around the lego hobby community. Thank you! :D

:shock: Wow! My brother(Peppermint Pig) and I won. There were so many great entries I thought we might of been short in the scoring.

Keep building, learning and always have fun. It's not an order just a philosophy of mine.

By the way does anybody know the total number of entries and contestants this year compared to last year?
I counted around 289 entries for this year and about 107 contestants. This is just estimates and not the final numbers. I could find out myself, just don't want to waste time if somebody has the data already.

Hi Admins

Speaking about curiosity & coming out of nowhere, does anyone know what this year's "Mystery Prize" is? I wouldn't be concerned, except that it appears I have won it.... whatever it is.... :)

Thanks in advance

You counted 289 entries and say you didn't want to waste time :)! Congrats to all winners and honorably mentioned. Too bad I didn't get an honorable mention. I'll just have to try again next year when I hopefully will have more time. Oh, and thanks to the administrators and everyone else for this great contest :D .

Congrats to all of the winners, honorable mentions, and contestants. You guys continue to surprise me with your building abilities! On a personal note, I hope that I have more time to build next year. Funny how right when CCCV started, I also started getting swamped with schoolwork...

Anyway, great job to all, and I'm looking forward to next year!

In Christ,
Thomas Wunz <><

Thank you CCC-Team for this great contest, congrats to the winners, and thanks to the judges for taking time to score all the entries!

I want to do some statistic about the CCCV like the last years contest, but I'll be waiting for the master-builder to complete the numbers. Please be patient...

You are welcome.

Since I was new within this contest I would like to understand it a bit better, just in case I join again this year, so here are two questions to the Admins:

1. I was not sure if we would have been allowed to use in all categories pieces from Brickforge. Example the animals in the farm category or a bow in a history entry...


We did not disqualify entries with custom elements in categories other than Medieval Farm. In most cases, their use was only a minor part of the moc and would not have affected the score. That being said, entrants should follow the rules and not use custom elements in other categories.

2. It seems that the general idea and the looks of a Moc are most important. Example the Miller's Nightmare has a fantastic look and is very original in the idea. The question to me is, does playability play a role and if yes, how do you define playability. To me playability would be opening up hatches and walls and getting into the Moc. A very good example for such playability would be Stone Goblins "Gold mine".


Playability does play a role in grading. If I were a minifig, would the space be interesting? Opening mocs with moving functions certainly help an entry. But they are not the only things we are looking for.

Can we combine shipping costs? ;)

I sent you a pm with the list of donated elements in your prize.
