[Alln] 4x4 Contest
So this is the second contest for this group and it's gonna be a 4x4 diorama which I've been wanting to do for a while. Same voting thing as last time but we need more members to participate. I think at least 10 people need to join the contest for us to start. Then we will have initial votings and MOC offs for any tie breakers. For now this will be a general contest with no set theme.

Having run a [failed] contest before, I just have a few tips for you guys (I'm in the 4x4 contest, by the way):
1. Always have a set deadline for sign-ups; it keeps things organized and really helps to keep things moving.

2. Round(s) should always have start/end times pre-planned and announced.

3. Voting deadlines should also be clarified.

4. (This is just me being OCD/picky =P): Standard vignettes tend to be between 6x6 - 10x10, 16x16+ seems to be more in the diorama range from how some extremely popular builders seem to tag their creations.

5. Other than that, thanks for organizing this contest, and good luck to everybody!

I agree with everything, except the vignette part. I have had a hard part with this, and everyone says the same. Vignette is anything smaller than a 32x32.

Other than that, I totally agree!

Hey yes A agree with Matthew on the vignette anything that is smaller than a 32x32 is one but anything that size and bigger than that size is a diorama but that is just my opinion

Why don't we just have this as a contest for all of [Alln]? No need to sign up. That would be so much easier. Like just announce the contest, and have a starting and due date.

As soon as you're done with the M.O. Or you just want to start.. I was thinking about making a new contest group... Should we do that? it'd be easy to see entries that way.

Let's leave it. How about it ends in 2 weeks starting Sunday? That way I have more time to build.

This competition has inspired me to build something. I'll post in a minute and add a link to this conversation. It's a bit of fun with Lego & Photoshop & science :)

Hi,

I just thought that I should make it clear here that my entry is as much about me playing with Photoshop as it is about using Lego. I only built one section and cloned it in Photoshop. I honestly don't own an infinite quantity of Lego :) If it isn't suitable, please let me know. I don't want to cause problems or upset anyone.

Thanks,

David Roberts.

I think it is ok for the contest.. Just so long as you say that you didn't actually make the entire thing on the creation itself.
