New in 2020 Photo Contest
It's 2020, people, and you know what that means: time for a change!
Most of us probably have some New Year's resolution to improve our photography skills so let's run with that idea but make it just a teeny tiny bit more interesting: do something new in your photography workflow.
If you usually hunt for mossy locations for a minifig scene, maybe try shooting in a LEGO set instead.
If you always shoot tightly framed with a macro lens, put on a wide lens and take more of the environment in.
If you've never tried long exposure photography, using lights, editing in Photoshop, or using a lens filter, now's the time to experiment! The idea is to get out of your comfort zone and grow as a photographer through exploration!
Your photo entry could win you a new LEGO set or two of your choice up to a value of $90! LEGO has just released a ton of new sets so there's something out there for you!
How to Enter
- Take a new LEGO photo following the theme and post it to your Instagram, Flickr or Twitter account.
- Use the #bc_newin2020 hashtag for Instagram and Twitter or add your photo to our Flickr group, Brickcentral Contests, for Flickr entries
Make sure to follow these 2 rules when you submit your entries or they will be disqualified from winning!
You can enter as many times as you like until the contest ends on January 29, 2020 at 22:00 EST. After that, this topic will be closed to submissions.
Photos will be judged by the BC mod team based on creativity, originality and in accordance to the theme. If you can explain or demonstrate how you shot your photo differently than you would have, that's even better!
The mods are:
The contest is open worldwide, except for areas where LEGO's delivery provider is unable to reach.
For photos to be eligible, they must be:
- your own,
- visible to the public,
- contain LEGO elements as the main subject (third party accessories and non-brick-built environments are ok),
- and be family-friendly in content. (No drugs, sex, politics, religion, hate, violence, etc, please. These will be removed by the forum mod.)
The winner can choose any newly released LEGO set or combination of 2 smaller sets up to a value of $90.
- Poe Dameron's X-wing Fighter™ 75273 = $89.99
- Haunted Fairground 70432 $49.99 + Gamer's Market $29.99 = $79.98
The prize is generously provided by LEGO and will be shipped directly to the winner for free. If delivery is unavailable in your area, we cannot guarantee that LEGO can accommodate you.
If the set you have selected is unavailable in your region at the time of the awarding, we reserve the right to substitute a prize of equal value. The prize can't be exchanged for cash or other items.
We'll announce the contest winner by Feb 5, 2020.
If your entry is chosen, you must respond within 72 hours of the announcement or we will have to select a new winner.
We're looking forward to seeing your entries! Good luck!
