Prizes

We'll be announcing prizes shortly, courtesy of the very generous Trixbrix who have once again stepped in to support the awards, including the cost of shipping prizes and winner's bricks worldwide. Additional sponsors for individual regions may follow.

2020 winners

If you missed them, winners from last year's Brick Train Awards are listed on the website here; there's a 15 minute announcement video of winners here.

Entering the Brick Train Awards 2021

As before, the awards are free to enter. You can enter up to 3 models per category; this time, models must have been completed in the last 24 months (2 years). Digital models can be submitted in the first 11 categories below:

  1. Best steam loco
  2. Best diesel loco
  3. Best electric loco
  4. Best other loco
  5. Best passenger wagon
  6. Best freight wagon
  7. Best special wagon
  8. Best structure
  9. Best TFOL (teenage fan of LEGO) locomotive
  10. Best TFOL (teenage fan of LEGO) wagon
  11. Best TFOL (teenage fan of LEGO) display / structure

The above awards are drawn at a regional level (best models in Asia, Americas, Europe and Australasia) before a global winner is picked from those. The two categories below are judged at a global level only (as there are relatively fewer entries for these):

  1. Best group display
  2. Best individual display

Enter your models for free from 1st - 28th February 2021; see details at bricktrainawards.com/enter.

We look forward to seeing what's submitted this year!

Richard - Organiser, Brick Train Awards

Three TFOL categories is great for me, I've been designing plenty of models recently, 3 engines which will be built.

Yep, noticed a lot of interest in TFOL categories last year, so makes sense to add a few more categories.
