The recent Afrofuturism contest has been running on LEGO Ideas since January, with aspiring builders encouraged to create their own vision of the future in brick form. The competition was in partnership with artist Ekow Nimako and offered an impressive grand prize package of some highly-desirable LEGO sets, plus a custom model made by Nimako himself.
The Afrofuturism contest recently transitioned to a fan vote stage, with 10 projects up for selection. The LEGO Ideas blog has revealed that this stage has now closed, votes have been counted, winners contacted and the successful entries will be announced tomorrow, April 5.
With the conclusion of the Afrofuturism contest, that only leaves just one more LEGO Ideas competition currently running. Creative builders can still take part in the LEGO Group’s forthcoming 90th anniversary celebrations and submit a model design in one of three categories – Musical, Futuristic and Celebrate.
A minimum of 25 winners across all three categories will each get a 21037 LEGO House and the opportunity to have their model exhibited at the real LEGO House for a year. Three grand prize winners will receive a 21037 LEGO House, 40502 The Brick Moulding Machine, 40503 Dagny Holm – Master Builder and a yet-to-be revealed 90th anniversary set. The contest is open until April 7, so be sure to submit your entries by then to be in with a shot.
