Summer Contest (Lasts 3 Months! Big Contest) Ideas?
Join to comment
 Group admin 
I thought we could have a long 3 month contest over the summer (June July August). Summer Holidays give plenty of building time.

Any ideas????? Is this a good idea????

I don't think we will do Stop-Motion because not everyone likes it and some people don't know how to do it.

I know how to do it. But please don't make us do stop-motion. It is way to frustrating.

Don't worry, we won't to Stop-Motion.

Has anybody got any ideas on what we could do?

I was thinking we could have a city building contest, there's enough time. It could be a futeristic, castle, under water, modern, bionicle, any-themed city!
That's just my idea.

I think we should do something with a summer theme, nice idea! But not Indipendance day because I don't really know much about it.

A swimming pool contest? Who can make the best/biggest/funnyest swimming pool/beach? A summer comic?

How about building your concept of "The City on the Edge of Forever"? That way you're not tied down to a single time period or theme.

Definatley a summer theme. Or maybe a MOC of all seasons. All the holiday representatives (santa, easter bunny, cupid) all get together for a massive BBQ?????

Great idea, but I think something smaller. Some people may be going on holiday, and not be at home to build a large scale project.

OK HERE WE GO!!!!! This is my suggestion for the contest....

The contest is an Out-of-your-comfort-zone Building contest! There is a long time to make it because we have the whole summer, so e have time for trial and error.

This is how it works build something on a subject you have never posted before. If you haven't made any castle, mordern military, coustom figs, Harry Potter, etc. Build one of those! and post it here, online.

The only rule is that it has to be something you haven't posted yet.


There really isn't any possible judging material for this contest. So the Judge will just pick witch is the best. It will be easy to decide if your first try on this subject is good or bad so the judge will pick the best.


Well there it is my shot in the dark....

Maybe we could do some mythical ancient history thing with Greek or Roman gods like Damocles or Atlas or Midas or something.

We need to decide on a contest really soon!

So, what about we build whatever we want and the judge/s pick the best MOC? That way everybody gets to build what they want!
