Days are getting shorter, snow is falling...in the Northern Hemisphere anyway... the Holiday Season is approaching and that means it is time for an annual tradition in the Town forum. TLG brought us a long–awaited Holiday Train this year! The Village itself, however, is lacking in new commercial or residential space so now it's up to you! Entries can be a building, public space, amusement park ride, train or anything you can think of that would fit in a Winter Village. Winter–themed sets don't need to stick to Christmas either, so represent the holidays you celebrate in Winter. We're all looking forward to seeing your unique creations to add to the Winter Village!
Entries must be posted by midnight GMT, January 15th, 2017.
One entry per member.
Entries must be similar in size to an official release LEGO Winter Village set.
Entries should be either Town-themed or Friends-themed and may include either (or both) Minifigs and Minidolls.
Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) and be similar in style to the previous official TLG releases.
All entries are to include only real LEGO. No clone brands, 3rd party parts, or digital entries allowed.
Decals will be allowed if you've made them yourself, but no cutting, sculpting or modifying parts.
Entries are to be placed in their own entry topic in the Town forum. The title of the topic should begin with "Winter Village: " and then give the name of the entry.
The entry post (first post in your entry topic) may be edited at any time up to the end of the contest, so feel free to make improvements if you wish.
Entries are to consist of no more than 5 posted pictures of 1024x768 pixels or smaller resolution but may also include a link to a folder of additional images of any size. The first picture will be used for your entry in the voting thread.
Photos of your creation can be manipulated with Photoshop for levels, proportions and color correction but may not include graphic enhancements.
We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules.
