LEGO Ideas’ Afrofuturism contest has now closed

Another LEGO Ideas contest has closed its entry intake period as time is up to take part in the Afrofuturism competition to win a custom build.

LEGO Ideas’ Afrofuturism contest in partnership with artist Ekow Nimako is no longer accepting entries, with 169 models now in contention for the huge prize package.

As a reminder, this contest was based on Afrofuturism, which puts black culture positioned as the central theme for a story, sometimes including a reimagined version of history. As an example, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther uses Afrofuturistic themes in the film and throughout Wakanda.
