Who can participate?

The competition is open to primary school children from age 8+.

What artwork and material do I need?

You only need Lego, your imagination and your time!  The competition theme is summer holidays, so your work should be inspired by something that reminds you of the summer (this can be anything –  for example you might create a replica of your family car that takes you to the beach or a boat that you would use to visit Sherkin island).

There are no design guidelines as we want to see your individuality shine. However, if you need some ideas here’s some well known faces building their own LEGO designs, that showcase their personality.

How do I take part?

It’s easy.  Pick your theme, make your very own Lego creation.  Take a photo of it – don’t forget a background so we can imagine what it would be like in its environment (e.g. if you create a boat, take a picture of it on a blue background).

Get a grown-up to send the image to  Include the pupil’s full name, age, school and class. 

When do I submit my entry by?

 The deadline is Friday, 28th April 2023, by 11 pm.

When will the winning entries be known and what can I win?

The 3 winning entries will be announced by Friday, 5th May, 2023.  Children with the winning entries will receive a place at the Ludgate Lego Summer Camp (value €100 each), which takes place this year on 10th and 17th July 2023 – you pick the week.  There will also be prizes for the winning and runners-up entries, and cash prizes to the winning pupils’ schools.
