Time’s up for the LEGO Ideas art contest

Entries have closed for LEGO Ideasart contest, which will now enter the judging phase.

The LEGO Art team will now review all 467 submissions and choose five winners, who will each bag a complete series of any one LEGO Art set of their choice. That could be four copies of 31197 Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe, or three copies of 31200 Star Wars The Sith (review).

But that’s not all. The artistic fans who claim those top five spots will also have their winning artwork displayed at the new LEGO Campus in Billund, Denmark.

The expert review phase will run until November 12, as the LEGO Art team makes the very difficult decision of selecting the best entries. The Ideas team will then announce the winners on November 19. Keep an eye on Brick Fanatics for the results, and check out our picks here.

The competition tasked fans with building a representation of what art means to them. That could have been anything from a mosaic, like the official LEGO Art line, to a 3D sculpture – or something in between. The only limitations were that the model could be physically constructed, and that it wasn’t extremely big or small.

Another LEGO Ideas contest has launched today, asking builders to create a sixth model for LEGO MINDSTORMS 51515 Robot Inventor. And the LEGO Star Wars Christmas competition is still running, which involves giving a classic LEGO Star Wars vehicle a festive twist.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
