I have a question:

I already uploaded (after the start of the CCC) 12 pictures of my build, which I would also like to submit for the misc. category. Is it ok if I just do a separate album on flickr with the 3 allowed pictures for the CCC? Or do I have to delete the other ones? (Since it's also an entry to the Challenge V on Eurobricks, I would want to keep them, so I couldn't enter the contest :( )

I don't understand what you mean by this.


I think what Lolino is saying is that one of the categories appears to have gone missing.
There were originally 14 categories and now there are only 13.
The one missing was something about a centre of learning. I have them all written down at home, so I can double check the exact wording this evening.
It's also missing off the submit an entry page.

The Precentor of the Scriptorium forgot the Centre of Learning category???????

27 - On the 'submit your entry' page you should link to an album (brickshelf gallery, mocpage, etc) with only the three images you want judged. Also, these should be within the 800x600 or 600x800 limits. In separate albums you can post however many pictures you want, at whatever size you want. Feel free to link to these in a CC thread and get feedback from others, post them on other web forums, whatever. The judges will only consider the three images in the album you link on the entry page in their evaluation.

Can I use the medieval architectural detail (see below) I submitted to that category to make another MOC for another category? Or can I submit only one of the entries, since they feature the same part?

I have a question
For the forest life category does it have to be a tree forest or could it be something like the bamboo forests in China?

Has an exemption for the "previously displayed" rule ever been considered for BrickCon attendees? It's a shame that anyone who puts so much time and effort into their BrickCon displays (Castle swept all 3 "Best in Show" awards this year) has them disqualified for being revealed less than a month prior to the CCC starting. I know several people who are still buried up to their eyeballs in BrickCon sorting/dissassembly (myself included), so we are at a major disadvantage when it comes to pre-building large entries compared to the rest of the CC community. Just look how many large castles were submitted on day 1. It would be almost impossible for a BrickCon participant to do that due to how closely the two events are scheduled to each other.

Not trying to complain. Just something I thought I'd put out for consideration.

Thanks :)

28. An entry can not be submitted to more than one category. You may incorporate the same building technique into individual entries.

29. Yes. You can build a medieval scene in a bamboo forest.

30. The Colossal Castle Contest has been held for ten consecutive years around the same time of the year and will continue to in the future. Fan events occur throughout the year around the world. Making an exception for one convention is not fair to other builders. Two months is plenty of time to build a few new castle mocs.

Hey,

I'd started to write responses to the past few questions, but in the time that I went to go put my daughter to bed Ben answered them already. Just to pile on to the last question, though, here's what I had written:

The whole raison d'etre of the CCC is to inspire more castle building, not to heap additional praise on creations that have already gotten great exposure at one of the larger fan events. BTW, why do you specifically mention BrickCon, and not Lego World or the Great Western LEGO Show? Or what about people who created things for the MOColympics or the MOC Invitational Tournament? Or why not just people who have shown off large MOCs online in the past month or so? But why, then, limit things to those who showed their MOCs at events or online in the past month or so? My basic point is that if you don't have a limit then you don't have a limit. It would certainly be a cool thing for someone to hold some sort of annual award for the coolest thing created in the past year, but that's not the intent of the CCC.

Fair enough. Thank you both for the well-written replies.

I submitted an entry with too large images, which I resized on Flickr, but I'm still on the naughty list...
I uploaded now smaller pics to Flickr, but I don't know how to edit an entry. Is that even possible or do I have to submit it a second time and you (admins) delete the first one?

31 - Use the 'naughty list' thread to inform the admins when you've fixed any issues with your entries.

In the naughty list post, you mentioned a "view entries" page... It must be under some cloaking spell, because I have yet to locate it? :?
