EDIT MODE

UPDATE: The competition is over! See the results.

It's time we ran another competition! I want to run more competitions this year than I have been lately. To start with, we're having an Alternate Build competition, based on the Creator theme.

Rules

  1. Submit an alternate build MOC using only the parts from a single Creator themed set. Using spare parts is fine, as long as they are inventoried on Rebrickable at the time of submission. There can be no inventory errors when you submit or it won't be considered.
  2. The MOC must be physical with a real photo, but using a digital file (e.g. LDD) as instructions is ok.
  3. It must be a newly designed MOC, without any previous submissions to other Internet sites.
  4. You may submit as many entries as you like.
  5. Only Free MOCs will be eligible.

Prizes

We will award prizes to two different MOC designers. Each prize will consist of the following four Creator 2018 sets:

31080

31074

31075

31072

The best two MOCs as determined by the Rebrickable admin team will receive 4 Creator sets each. We will judge the MOCs based on build quality, instructions, presentation, and general creativity.

Thanks to the Community Engagement Team at LEGO for providing these sets!

Timeline

The competition is open now, and entries close on 30th April 2018. The winner will be announced early in May.

    I had an issue with my entry where one part was color flipped but everything showed green on the inventory. I fixed it but I think it was on the 1st of may. Will it still be considered? The moc is https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14319/theCroc/10243-modern-house/
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
      Sorry, that MOC is not an alternate of a set within the Creator theme, as defined by our catalog.
      • 1 year, 7 months ago theCroc (917) MOC Designer PRO
        But the line is called Creator expert! I assumed form previous replies in the thread that it would be valid for the competition.
        • 1 year, 7 months ago Berth (59K) MOC Designer PRO
          Modulars are defined in the "modular" category in the rebrickable database.

          So the other creator expert sets are "creator" but not the modular ones.

    Are MOCs submitted today still valid entries? In other words, has the competition closed already now that it's April 30th or will it close at midnight tonight?
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
      I didn't specify clearly, so I'll accept MOCs until end of April 30th UTC time... which is approx 3.5 hrs from now!
  • 1 year, 7 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
    If I started designing a MOC in mid-March and finish it today is it still eligible for the competition? I've been working on it for the whole duration of the competition, but I started it before the competition was announced.
  • 1 year, 7 months ago Leo1 (7K) MOC Designer
    For some reason, two of my MOCs (31070 mini Land Rover and 31056 american truck), had been tagged but now no longer appear on the current entries list. Can anyone give me a clue as to why?

    Edit: Problem solved (human error)!
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
      I can see those MOCs, but I think I know why you can't. If you have it set to show you 50 results per page, then there are a few entries that will be on a second page. In other words, try the link again and either click on the second page or change your settings to show like 100 per page. Hope this helps!
      • 1 year, 7 months ago Leo1 (7K) MOC Designer
        Thanks for the help! I can now see them.
  • 1 year, 7 months ago LegoOri (71K) MOC Designer PRO
    How is it decided which MOC gets the competition tag? I saw that the tag is not *the* indication that a MOC is in the running, but I still wonder why my 31013 airport didn't get it...
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
      It probably just got missed. I think there were a lot of MOCs submitted around the same time as that one, so that might be part of the reason. You can always add the tag yourself; that is what I have been doing recently.
      • 1 year, 7 months ago LegoOri (71K) MOC Designer PRO
        Oh, thanks. Adding it myself felt like cheating. I thought maybe the fact there were too many submodules and not one was the reason.
        • 1 year, 7 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
          You're welcome! I think you can make as many submodules as you like as long as it's out of one set. I could see how you might view adding the tag yourself as cheating, but IMO if you have submitted your MOC with the intentions of entering the competition then its OK. 
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
      It's just one I missed, added now. FYI the image on that MOC is broken.
      • 1 year, 7 months ago LegoOri (71K) MOC Designer PRO
        Thanks Nathan. The image breaking happens every time I change the main image through admin. It happened to the 31074 mech as well. I tried reentering MOC details URL but it didn't help.
        • 1 year, 7 months ago XperiMent (38K) MOC Designer PRO
          Sometimes you have to wait for changing the profile picture, usually it takes days in my experience. I think, it's reletad to the server cache.
          • 1 year, 7 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
            Yes, it's a caching bug. I was able to change the MOC images fine, but I can see it not working for others and don't know why yet.
  • 1 year, 7 months ago fenna (636) MOC Designer
    If I posted a single photograph of a moc previously on lets say the lego life app without disclosing building instructions, would that disqualify that moc in this competition? If so I'll shift focus to the instructions of another moc first (btw it does not concern my allready entered mocs)

    regards, Fenna
    • 1 year, 7 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
      Yes, new MOCs please.
      • 1 year, 7 months ago fenna (636) MOC Designer
        Thank you for the answer. I'll avoid any confusion for the competition and wait with that MOC until after the competition and also mark it as having a photo previously published.

      I'm pretty sure they do. See some of the first comments on this post. 

      I will look forward to seeing your alternate!
  • 1 year, 8 months ago CathyVT (4K) MOC Designer
    Once we've submitted something here, is it then OK to submit it elsewhere (Brixtar) or should we wait until the contest is over?
    • 1 year, 8 months ago Nathan (64K) Site Admin ADMIN
      It would be best to wait until the competition is over to make it easier to validate each entry.
      • 1 year, 8 months ago CathyVT (4K) MOC Designer
        No problem. Thanks.
  • 1 year, 8 months ago DarkWizard (1518) MOC Designer
    Question- Will the winners be selected from alternates of every set or are they selected from alternates of any set?
    • 1 year, 8 months ago TeagueO (35K) MOC Designer
      Alternates of any Creator set. Your question is a bit confusing, but if you submit an alternate of ANY creator set, you have been entered and are eligible for the prize.
      • 1 year, 8 months ago DarkWizard (1518) MOC Designer
        I know its confusing but don't you think it is obvious that any MOC from sets like 31056 have a next to impossible chance to win? There isn't much you can create with it due to less bricks. This creates an unfair opportunity for people like me.
        • 1 year, 8 months ago TeagueO (35K) MOC Designer
          I see, well creativity is a large part of this....keep that in mind
          • 1 year, 8 months ago DarkWizard (1518) MOC Designer
            I definitely agree with you but less bricks limits our creativity!
            • 1 year, 8 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
              It doesn't have to though. Three of my entries are from 31056, and that was by my own choice. Tomik and Leo1 have also entered the contest with 31056 and they've made some incredible alternates too!
              • 1 year, 8 months ago DarkWizard (1518) MOC Designer
                You're right! I just finished making 1 alternate from this set but the instructions will be tricky to make because most of the bricks are joined in an illegal (not exactly) sort of way which makes it impossible to show it in LDD
                • 1 year, 8 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
                  Will look forward to seeing it! You could build the model in several chunks as long as it is obvious enough which chunks go together.
        • 1 year, 7 months ago Tomik (30K) MOC Designer
          I've already built 30 different alternative models out of set 31056 so you can built pretty much from it. And also nobody force you to choose this set... ;-)
          • 1 year, 7 months ago DarkWizard (1518) MOC Designer
            Thanks for the motivation but I have no choice since I have only one LEGO set :(
  • 1 year, 8 months ago DinoZoff (437) PRO
    I am new to this. My son wants to enter this competition but we only have photo's, no LDD. How to submit our MOC?
    • 1 year, 8 months ago TeagueO (35K) MOC Designer
      Hi, so make a pdf instructions by organizing you pictures and construction of the build in an easy-to-follow way. Make sure you can re-build the model from those before submitting. You can store the pdf instructions for free on bricksafe.com. 
      You can download LDD for free as well. I find that easier.
      Hope this is helpful, good luck!
  • 1 year, 8 months ago Tomik (30K) MOC Designer
    I built 3 alternative models from set 31056 during weekend so I'll make instructions for them and enter competition. ;-)
    • 1 year, 8 months ago XperiMent (38K) MOC Designer PRO
      Can't wait for them :) this set wasn't inspiring to me, but there are a lot of fantastic alts with this set, including yours.
  • 1 year, 8 months ago Turbo8702 (84K) MOC Designer PRO
    When I submit a MOC does it need to be labeled only under the theme "Creator"? In other words, will an alternate build for a creator set count as an entry if it is listed in "Creator > Basic Model > Race" instead of just "Creator"?
