2017 Middle Earth Lego Olympics on Mocpages

Postby TheLordOfBricks » Sat Apr 01, 2017 11:16 pm

Hello everyone, there is a contest, that comes around annually, and never ceases to impress, both with the fun from the participants, the difficulty deciding for the judges, and even the amazement of the viewers, of the the Middle Earth builds posted in the 5th annual Middle Earth Lego Olympics on Mocpages. I had the honor of helping set up the contest this year, and I am very excited for what is ahead, since the Mocpages forum is dying off, and we still want to have a competition that is fun, and challenging, we are advertising this contest on all other sites so that it can meet the expectations of the moccers on Mocpages. There will be six rounds, of different Middle Earth related such as Poems/Songs in the books and/or movies. Round 1 will be a free for all, which will be judges by 6 judges on a 1-10 point scale where the top 32 contestants will move on to the next round, then, from rounds 2-6, the rounds will be a one-on-one moc-off, where contestants will face off, and the judges will choose whose build they think is better.

Please check out the contest by clicking the link below the banner:

Thanks so much for viewing, I hope you choose to compete, view, or donate to this great contest, no matter what you do, I hope you come along for the ride to Mordor! ;)

To God be the Glory!!! :D

Hey,

I'm shifting this over to "Castle Displays & Events" as a more appropriate forum.

All, this is an awesome contest. I participated a couple of years ago and it was a lot of fun. One of the things I really like about it is how it really fosters a feeling of friendly competition, as competitors always give gracious feedback on each other's MOCs. Looking forward to doing this one again. I'd encourage everyone here to participate - the first category won't be announced for three weeks, and after that you will have until May 21 to enter.

I've enjoyed spectating MELO for the past several years, and am looking forward to seeing what this year's contest brings!

:D Thank you SO much for donating a prize, since I am competing, and am not an admin or mod of the group, I thought it would be weird to thank you over there... But, thanks so much for donating, it will help a ton with the contest, and I think it will be a great prize!!!! :D

You're not too late by any measure. The deadline to post your round 1 submission is May 21. You still have 20 days to enter. In fact, as of this point, only one person has officially entered by posting a MOC.
