Architecture Building Contest - Results and Winners!
What an amazing contest! There were so many fantastic entries - the quality far exceeded our expectations. 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.

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

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.
