As of Nov 28 at 5:45 am EST, all entries that can be approved have. If you do not see your entry then you have one of these two issues:

1) Your images are too large. The majority not approved have this issue.

2) Your link to the images does not work.

First of all thanks for Hosting my favorite contest again ! This year's categories are the best I have seen in the past years. I espeacially like that they are pretty open for different thoughts and not restricting the ideas.
:)

I also got a question, that I was asking also last year, just want to be on the save side. Is it allowed to use non-lego lights (LED) ?

Last years answer was, that it is allowed only in the misc categories.

Hi!

I've submitted this moc (https://www.flickr.com/photos/124388168 ... ateposted/) twice for the Large Miscellaneous category, but as far as I can tell it has been rejected both times. I was wondering whether this was because of issues with picture privacy/trouble viewing the pictures in the album, or whether it was because of the unconventional format of the build. Would it help if I provided a better white background picture - maybe one that's zoomed out so the background is visible on all four sides of the moc? If it's because it's not suited to the category, I was wondering whether it would work for any other category.

Thanks!
Mr. Cab

Hello,
I'm really looking foward to enter, but I'm not sure of the meaning of "1600 x 1280 pixels in a portrait or landscape orientation" in the rules. Does that mean the image is limited to 1600 x 1280 pixels in landscape orientation and 1280 x 1600 in a portait orientation, or strictly 1600 x 1280 pixels in both orientations?
Thanks!

Ah. Well, the fix for that should be easy enough... Hopefully this time it will work.

As of Dec 3 at 10:20 am EST all entries that can be approve have been. If you are not seeing your entry then you have issues with your images.

1) Your images are too big. Many entries not showing up have this problem.

2) Your link is not working to your images.

3) You failed to have a white background image.

Please review the rules about images:

Each submission is limited to five photographs except custom figures which are limited to three photographs. Each photograph should be no larger than 1600 x 1280 pixels in a portrait or landscape orientation. You may edit your images digitally, but only to clean up the images for presentation. Each entry should include at least one image with a white background to improve the grading process. LDraw images are acceptable but these entries must use readily available pieces, not large quantities of rare pieces, colors, or figures, and they must also be physically possible. Composite images are only allowed to show some action feature (e.g. an inset photo to show falling axes or a trap door swinging).

Is it ok if I am entering for the small misc. category and my base is 33 studs long? You said in previous conversation that there could be overhang... Please? :D

Okay, so for some reason with my Knight and Squire build the pictures acted funny. I resized them to the right size, and yet it seemed to show a broken picture when I previewed, and also it did not get accepted (because of that I assume). I know pretty well how it all works and got another entry approved a short bit ago and I can't tell what's wrong.. I'll try again now.. there, the picture seemed to work now. That's odd, as I don't think I did anything different. Well, sorry for the now pointless comment :P .

20. Your limit is 1600x1280 or 1280x1600. You can be smaller on either number but not exceed either or both.

Are we doing cross category awards this year?


21. This has not been decided yet.

22. Overhang is defined to be plant life, weapons, or slight brick overhange, it is not adding an extra stud to the base.
