The Big Brick Building Competition

Competition closing date:
Monday 20 August 2018, 5pm

Test your LEGO® brick building skills by entering our Big Brick Building Competition, win the chance to have your creation displayed alongside our thrilling Bright Bricks Civilisations models in the Museum Gallery!

What to do:

Design and build your very own model that should represent an iconic moment in global civilisation. Use our exhibition as your inspiration, or drawing from your own ideas of what this means. For example it could be a model of an Egyptian mummy, a Mayan temple, or the first wooden wheel… This model should measure no more than 40cm x 40cm x 40cm.



How will we judge?:

Judges will be looking for originality, style and relevance to the theme. We will shortlist 15 entries from all submissions, and invite all of the shortlist to our prize-giving event on Saturday 1st September 2018 (you must be available to attend this event). A winner from each category will be announced, and those winning entries will have the chance to be on display as part of our amazing Bright Bricks Civilisations exhibition for the final week.


We would like to thank Toys UK (Hale Leys Shopping Centre, Aylesbury) for donating LEGO kits for the lucky winners.
