Classic-Town.net and Eurobricks invite you to create your own addition to the popular winter village subtheme that TLG has presented during the holiday season for the past four years.

The Idea

As we enter the holiday season yet again, thoughts turn to fun and winter activities and where better to enjoy those than in your own Winter Village? So far, TLG has provided us with four places to visit, a lovely Winter Toy Shop, an equally inviting Winter Bakery, and elaborate and playful Post Office set and this year's new Cottage, but wouldn't it be nice to have an even larger Winter Village full of festive fun?

Well, now you can, by expanding the theme with your own Winter inspired creation!

The Rules
  • Entries must be posted by midnight UTC, January 30th, 2013.
  • One entry per member.
  • Entries should be new (never posted anywhere previously) and similar in style and size to the previous official TLG releases, Winter Toy Shop (815 pieces / 7 minifigs)  Winter Bakery (687 pieces / 7 minifigs) Winter Village Post Office (822 pieces / 7 minifigs) and Winter Village Cottage (1490 pieces / 8 minifigs).
  • 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 800x600 or smaller resolution but may also include a link to a folder of additional images of any size.
  • No photoshopping backgrounds or packaging.
  • We reserve the right to disqualify any entry that does not follow these rules.

Excellent.  I have a WV project I've been noodling around with - this will give me the incentive to really work on it and finish (and post a MOC online for the first time ever!)

Fantastic contest, it'll be interesting to see a balance of techniques used to create a LEGO product like creation. Thanks for hosting this, hopefully I can scrounge up the time to enter, and I look forward to seeing everyone's MOCs!

Wonderful contest!  

I've been meaning to add a train station to my annual winter village set-up  for some time now, perhaps this will be just the thing to get me to sit down and actually build it.

I have CuuSoo page with several Lord of the Rings MOCs,

Why not drop by and throw some votes of support my way; the sooner these guys get to 10,000, the sooner TLG can reject them and we can all get on with our lives.

You are correct. That entry is not permitted by the rules.

You probably should start a new topic as this one is about the contest, not your MOC. Thank you.

Yeah - I'm like Brad - admired the winner(s) last year and inspired me to have shot this year. Will post an entry soon.
Thanks to the mods for the chance to enter by running this great comp again.

Not sure if it's just my missing something or a weird computer glitch, but what's the prize pool? In any case, great contest, and I hope to enter no matter what prizes are provided.
