The LEGO Technic Challenge competition!
What is it?
It consists in a series of monthly contests, where you are challenged do build something, given a specific subject. Here you have a chance at showing the LEGO Technic designers your designs and your abilities with the Technic elements.
This month (February) the Technic Challenge is - Flying Functions!
You may find all the competition details at Technic.LEGO.com.
What do you have to do?
1. Build a model out of primarily LEGO Technic elements.
2. Take a picture of the model
3. Submit your model by entering contact information and uploading your image here.
What to build?
This month the competition is all about flight and functions - build a model with cool functions in the form of something that flies (plane, helicopter etc.) and make sure that the image shows the part of the model that has a function - as well as describing it!
It does not need to actually be able to fly, but it must be an aerial vehicle.
The Model does not need to be motorized, functions can also be manual.
How does it work?
Right now you can submit models - On the 15th of February - a panel of judges consisting of designers, marketing managers, building instruction artists and more will pick out (of all submissions) 10 finalists that will then be put up for voting on competition site.
The winner will receive a prize and also continue to the Big Finale in October.
So if your models get selected by the panel of judges to go into the voting round - and all of the visitors at the LEGO Technic site like your model the most - you will win!
The prize is first and foremost a 8049 Log Loader of the new 2010 assortment.
Furthermore, your model will go on to the Finale in October where it will compete with 7 other winners over the Grand Prize:
This is all models from the LEGO Technic line that are new and have been launched in 2010
