Since submissions to the CCCVI are not submitted by posting or adding to a thread in any of the forums, if you decide to exhibit them in such a manner, you would follow the regular forum rules: thus, you would post custom figs to the Customs forum.

Thanks for the response, one more......

I just went to the submit an entry form, but kept getting a NOT FOUND page when I click on the link on the left side of the page. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

If it's OK I'd like to point out the answer this one, it's in the first post of this thread:

From the contest rules page:
All entries should fit on 2 connected 32x32 baseplates or smaller unless stated otherwise in that category's rules. You may use a single 48x48 plate for your entry instead of the two 32x32 plates.


Since 56 is less than 64, this does not exceed the maximum size.

I have a creation that I'm working on for the seige category, but I just remembered that I had posted some pics of a tiny portion of it when I started building it in late sept. Does this dq it? It is less than 10% of the MOC that was previously posted.

Please send one of the admins a pm with the links to the old and new pictures so we can review it. You may have to remove the part of the moc which was posted before the contest.

Hey Architect, I got a quick question!

I'm working on my Misc catagory, and I want to know can I use 1 32x32 baseplate and a 16x32 baseplate instead? Also, are there any height restrictions? I'm pretty sure not, just wanted to be sure.

Thanks!

EDIT:
Decided to skim through the pages since I remembered a question about a similar thing:

You can not have a base that is 40x50 studs. A base that is 40x48 studs is acceptable. You should fit in the 64x32 or 48x48 areas or smaller.

That'd apply, I'm pretty sure. :wink:

And, to take this all the way, if I might be as so bold as to point this out, I quote from the category description:

Miscellaneous -
6095 Royal Joust

Does your castle creation not fit in one of our categories? Then enter it here! This category does not have a baseplate size limitation. Remember that you are still limited to three photographs, even for large creations.


All clear?

Okay, so I have hit a problem, which has cause a question to arise.

The crime and punishment category says to create a scene of a crime, and then a scene of a punishment. Does there have to be two different scenes? If one could show both the crime and the punishment in the same scene, the same picture, would that be alright? And if not, do the two seperate scenes have to be seperate creations, or can they be the same MOC with different minifig poses and such? RichardAM asked more or less the same question, but the response doesn't help me. Thanks in advance.

Similar to Robin Hood, a I have a question about crime and punishment category.... If we create two different mocs - one for the crime, and the other for the punishment - can we submit 6 photos (3 for each) to the contest or do we have to show the all scene with only 3 photos?

I searched for a question like this one in this thread, but i couldn't found, so I posted it myself... Sorry if it has already been asked! ;)

Yeah, regarding Crime & Punishment I was looking for some further clarification myself.

I've essentially got one MOC, but with the three photos it's going to be different in each one. Before the Crime, During the Crime, and After the Crime. Sans a few minor changes, the MOC stays exactly the same, acting as a storyboard and backdrop for the three scenes.

Would this be okay?

No. You are limited to a maximum of 3 photographs for an entry in any category.

Hey Architect, I hate to double post, but I have another question.

Can I use LED lights in my entries? I read the rules, and didn't see anything about it.

Thanks!
