Last month, LEGO Ideas and premium puzzle maker Chronicle Books have teamed up for a new and unique LEGO contest. Dubbed as the LEGO Ideas You’re The Final Piece! Contest, this contest challenges you to come up with your very own LEGO design or photograph that can be rendered into a 1,000-piece puzzle.
The contest has already begun its Idea Intake Stage last month and is about close this stage on July 20. As of date, the contest platform has already received almost 300 fan entries and will close its intake in two days. The LEGO Ideas You’re The Final Piece! contest mechanics are very much the same as that of the Music to Our Ears, and We Love Sports! building contests. After the Idea Intake, panelists will determine which among the entries will proceed to the Fan Vote Stage and the Product Idea Review Stage. Again, the LEGO Ideas Team reminds us that being selected as the winner from the Fan Vote Stage does not automatically guarantee that the winning entry will qualify to become an official puzzle. This will be determined by the Review Team under the Product Idea Review Stage.
Contest entries may be divided into four categories, as per the LEGO Ideas contest rules:
Space & Astronomy
Think out of this world, real or imagined! We’re looking for images destined for infinity and beyond!
Jaw-dropping mountains, lush jungles, plants and flowers, detailed landscapes, and incredible sunsets would all be great entries in this category. We’re looking for nature at its most beautiful.
We’re talking anything older than 20 years or so, but brought back to life in LEGO bricks! Dig out the classics— LEGO nostalgia to vintage clothes, patterns, hairstyles, tech, or anything else that screams ‘retro-cool.’
Modern, classic, ancient, futuristic? You be the architect! Find inspiration from classic styles or dream up the next big thing.
Four winners from the fan vote stage (one per category) will be chosen and will get to receive the following super-cool prizes.
- Goodies from LEGO Publishing and Chronicle Books
- All of the below LEGO Ideas sets
Remember, you still have two days before the end of the fan submission stage. For the complete contest rules, don’t forget to check the guidelines right here.
