  1. My son is only 5 and is in the middle of building his creation, but doesn’t want to use all the pieces. Do you have to use every piece in the set, or could you use say 2/3 of them etc????? He has only used 1 piece from another set so that is not an issue. Would appreciate your reply :)

      1. Thank you very much. That might stop a few arguments happening with us trying to force him to have to use them all up lol!

  2. Great idea to display entries at the Brick Show next year. Perhaps you could find another prize for a people’s choice award judged by visitors of the Brick Show. This may also serve as an incentive for builders to bring their competition entries along.

  3. It would appear that the entrants so far have not just uploaded one photo to flickr, most have severl and even a video. Is this ok? I have done something that could really do with more than one photo but I also want to stick within the rules of the comp.

    1. Yep that’s absolutely fine. We’re not going to be disqualifying any entries for things like that – go for whatever feels best for you :)
