It’s finally here, the beginning of our October Brick Video Contest! Share a video you made incorporating the theme, “spooky fun”, and you could win a grand prize of 10228 LEGO® Monster Fighters Haunted House signed by LEGO designer Adam Grabowski and a LEGO® Monster Fighters Exclusive Grab Bag.
Hurry up and submit your video as soon as you can – then share it with your friends, family, and extended network. The top 5 videos with the most “likes” from fellow ReBrick members will enter a semi-finals round, during which one grand prize winner will be selected.
A few things to keep in mind…
The video must be uploaded to YouTube (Youtube.com) and then bookmarked in the Building Challenge category. Make sure to add the extended link and not the short URL (on YouTube choose ‘share’ and then fold down ‘options’ and check the ‘long link’ box), otherwise the video wouldn’t play correctly. If you add music to your video, make sure you have rights to do so or it's licensed Creative Commons.
If you participate in the contest, your video might be picked as the featured video for the Official LEGO YouTube channel. We will pick a total of two videos for the channel— one is featured on October 23rd and the other on October 26th. Please note that being featured on YouTube does not guarantee being in the semi-final or winning the challenge.
