Young builders are being invited to recreate buildings from Morecambe Bay in LEGO bricks, as part of a marketing campaign for the area. After previous initiatives proved successful, the Morecambe Bay Partnership are asking brick fanatics 16 and under to build a local landmark, to potentially win LEGO vouchers and see their build used to promote the area.
More details are available on the Morecambe Bay Partnership website:
To enter the competition, participants (aged 16 or under) should submit one photograph of the monument or building which the model is based on, along with up to two photographs of their Lego interpretation to [email protected] with the subject line: LEGO LANDMARKS, no later than FRIDAY 30 SEPTEMBER. A maximum of two entries per person will be accepted.
Louise Martin, of Morecambe Bay Partnership said: “The Bay is packed full of fabulous historic buildings, and so often we don’t pay full attention to what’s on our doorstep. The challenge here is to get out and explore, then use your creativity to recreation those buildings in Lego. The entries will be mapped on a big map of the Bay by YouthAbility in the Community Centre at Walney Island, and the winners will be showcased on Morecambe Bay Partnership’s website and social media as well as receiving a prize of Lego vouchers. We hope next year to invite some of the shortlisted applicants to recreate their models for a special, one-off event.”
