Architecture Building Contest - Results and Winners!

What an amazing contest! :wub: There were so many fantastic entries - the quality far exceeded our expectations. :cry_happy: On behalf of the Eurobricks Staff, I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, and to everyone who took the trouble to vote. To those who didn't win - bad luck, but don't be disheartened - this was an extremely high-quality contest. :thumbup:

A Reminder of the Prizes

1st Prize: 21010 Robie House (worth 199 Euro)

2nd prize: You get a maximum budget of 150 Euro (~198 US$) to buy sets on LEGO Shop@Home.

3rd prize: You get a maximum budget of 50 Euro (~66US$) to buy sets on LEGO Shop@Home.

4th Prize: 21012 Sydney Opera House (worth 40 Euro)

5th Prize: 21011 Brandeburg Gate (worth 35 Euro)

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. For monetary prizes, 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.)
  3. Winners will be notified in order, and will be allowed to choose a lower value prize if they wish.

How the vote was counted

  • Members who registered before the start of the contest were eligible to vote.
  • Each member could cast up to 7 votes, with a maximum of 4 per entry.
  • Votes for disqualified entries were not counted
  • Any member who cast more than seven votes would be disqualified from voting (though this did not occur)
  • If a member cast more than 4 votes for an entry, only 4 were counted.

It was extremely close! Votes were counted three times, and the vote tallies checked carefully against each other. Ties in vote counts would be decided by EB Staff.

Special thanks again to CopMike for enabling this, and to TLG for providing the extra prize! :wub:

If you've won a prize...

You will receive a PM about what to do next. Winners will be notified in order, so there may be a delay before you hear from us. Please be patient.

Please make sure you have Personal Messenger enabled in your profile.

About number 13...

13. Hagia Sophia, by Artizan was deemed to be a digital render, rather than a real LEGO model, and therefore against the rules of the contest. This was only made clear after voting commenced, so votes for number 13 weren't counted. It may have been an ineligible digital entry, but it is still a great MOC. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

Congrats to all the winners! :thumbup:

Awesome contest. Quite honestly I think a lot of them look much more appealing than the TLG ones - much less bland in terms of building choices, not to mention awesome execution, I think I learned some new techniques just looking at the winners here.
