If I submit my entry the day the contest closes, will it be moderated in time to be judged?
Yes, all entries into the contest will be moderated before the judging process starts. However, we recommend submitting your entry a few business days before the deadline, so that if for some reason your entry doesn’t fit the contest rules, it has time to be moderated and you have time to correct the issue with your entry. This will also avoid any technical errors you might have submitting your entry at the last minute.
I don’t own any LEGO parts, can I still enter?
You can enter with a digitally animated brickfilm.
Oh no, my pictures are upside down! How do I fix this?
Unfortunately it is not possible to edit an entry on LEGO Rebrick, however the issue with images appearing upside down once submitted is a known bug. Entries will not be evaluated negatively in the judging process if the photos are upside down.
Can I use LEGO Constration/LEGO Technic/LEGO BIONICLE parts?
You can use any LEGO element in your entry.
Can I include custom stickers?
Homemade stickers or stickers found in non-IP/licensed sets are allowed in this contest.
Can I include my favorite show (an IP) in my entry?
Your entry must not contain copies of any existing third party work or creation, or infringements of any third party intellectual property right. This includes the use of LEGO Minifigures and Minifigure parts (such as a torso, helmet, etc) from brands including LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Lord of the Rings, LEGO Harry Potter etc.
Can I include my favorite song?
Please only include music you made yourself, either using a music maker app or by playing an instrument. You cannot ever remixed or re-recorded versions of existing songs. Even copyright free music isn’t allowed.
Can I include title cards and end cards?
You can include title cards and end credit cards, however even with these remember your entry must be under 30 seconds.
My video is only 30 seconds long, however on YouTube (or another video hosting site) this is rounded up to 31 seconds. Will my entry be disqualified?
Unfortunately, during moderation we review entries based on the time listed on the video hosting site they’re uploaded up. If it says your video is over the time limit, even by a second, I’m afraid we will have to disqualify it.
Can I use special effects in my entry?
Yes, special effects and editing is allowed.
If I submit my entry on the deadline, will it be moderated in time for it to be judged with the others?
Yes, all entries will be moderated before the judging process begins. However, we recommend you submit your entry a few days in advance to avoid possible technical errors, and so that if your entry is disqualified, you have time to fix it before the deadline has passed.
Oh no, I missed the deadline for the contest! Can I still submit it?
Sorry, to keep it fair to other participants we cannot allow members to submit entries past a contest deadline. We appreciate that you worked hard on your entry, and you can still share it on the LEGO.com Create and Share Gallery. We are also running new contests all the time, and we hope you’re able to submit an entry into another contest later on.
When will the trip to the LEGO House take place?
