Voting Thread

There have been some fantastic entries to this contest! Here is a map showing the (approximate) worldwide locations of the buildings people have chosen:


Apologies to for the use of their map.

Now it's time to decide the winners. This will be done by public vote, in the usual manner for Eurobricks contests. Good luck everyone!

Voting Rules:

  1. You have a total of
    7 points
    to allocate to your favourite entries.

  2. You can give a maximum of
    4 points
    to any one entry.

  3. Clearly mention the entry number and the amount of points per entry that you vote on (note: we'll use the entry number to count the votes so make sure to mention it!)

  4. You may
    vote if you joined Eurobricks
    on or after
    7th of March 2012
    . This is to prevent people registering just to vote, and applies even if you entered the contest.

  5. You may
    vote for your own entry.

  6. This voting thread will remain open for approximately one week.

  7. In the event of a tie for any place the Eurobricks staff will decide which entry wins. Their decision is final.

Please use this thread only for voting. You may explain why you made your choice, but any general discussion should take place in the Architecture Contest Discussion Thread.

Example of how to vote:

4) 3 votes

11) 2 votes

14) 1 vote

24) 1 vote

The Prizes - Note the new prizes kindly donated by TLG!

Architecture Set prizes and worldwide shipping very kindly donated by The LEGO Group. Monetary-value prizes and world wide shipping are sponsored by Eurobricks.

Important remarks:

  1. Each winner is allowed to select up to 5 sets as long as the total amount is under his/her maximum budget. We won't pay you the difference between your chosen sets and your maximum budget. Each winner provides us his/her list of sets and we'll buy them on S@H (don't buy them yourself). Your sets will be shipped to you directly from LEGO Shop@Home, so make sure Shop@Home ships to your country! If not, then you can still enter and we do our best to find a solution. We will pay for the shipment on top of your budget, so you can spend the full budget on sets.
  2. If you are one of the contest winners you'll get a PM after the contest is over to workout the details (like providing us your list of sets, your shipping address, etc.)

7 points to spare and it was still a tough choice. Seriously, one of the best contest held at Eurobricks! The average quality of the build is extremely high.
