What is originality?

That brings up a good point. For originality it means is it something that is unique or hasn't been done a lot or at all, or just something original. It is sort of your interpretation, but sort of not. That doesn't mean you should mark a creation down if it is something that has been done a lot, though.

Also accuracy to the book doesn't mean it has to be exactly like the book, you can have creative license. But at the same time it can't be something like "here is bilbo and Gandalf running away from the spiders and all of the sudden out of nowhere saruman appears and eats bilbo." Not that anyone would do that and that was a bit exaggerated, but you get the point. It has to follow the basic plot of the story.

Do you get what I am saying? If not please let me know, I will try my best to explain it better.

Just to clarify, when you say accuracy to the book you mean the storyline so we can base our creation on something from the movie as long as it takes place in the book?

You can have creative license. You must stick to the basic story line, but how you interpret the scene is up to you. You can base it off the movie but considering the hobbit movie isn't out yet I don't know how you would.....

I have slightly altered the criterion. Here is the new format.

Up to 35 for accuracy to the book

Up to 25 for originality

up to 30 for creativity/technique

up to 10 for minifigs/accurate scale for micro or miniland builds
