These are too good to miss out on!
LEGO Ideas suggests submitting your work 2–3 days before the deadline of October 8 in case changes need to be made. The judges will review all entries and choose the winners on October 20. The grand prize winner and runner ups will be announced at LEGO Ideas no later than October 27.
Which scene will you choose to build? Will it be Harry and Ron getting caught in the Whomping Willow or will it be the first time Harry sees Hogwarts as a first-year student gliding through the lake? You get to choose and make this piece your own. LEGO Digital Designer is a great tool to help build your idea virtually. Once you complete your piece, take up to five photos of your creation from different angles to show off those special features, and then submit it. For all rules and regulations and where to submit your entry, visit the LEGO Ideas website.
This is an exciting contest! What scene are you going to be creating? Let us know!
