Deadline: April 12th 23:59
We have one single signup form for
a) signing up MOCs or GBC modules for competitions (info further down)
b) signing up MOCs or GBC modules just for the exhibition
c) signing up buildings/things for the city/train collaboration layout (including competition if appliccable)
Of course there will be MOC competitions during this year's PKH! The rules posted here are based on experience from previous years, and to make this post as 'light' as possible, we'll only present the rules and not the background for them.
Rules for all competitions:
- The competitions are open for all participants at PKH
- Models that have been on display at previous PKH events - in Trondheim or elsewhere - can not be entered into the competitions.
- The design has to be your own - we do not allow models built from other people's instructions to be entered into the competitions.
- GBC modules cannot be entered into the public voting. The reason is simple - it's very difficult to explain to the audience that we want them to judge one module, and not the whole GBC setup.
People's Choice Award
During the public opening hours on Saturday and Sunday, the members of the audience will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite models. No participant can enter more than one model into this competition, and GBC modules are not eligible for this competition (more information on that below).
Saturday afternoon there will be an internal vote for the best model in multiple categories. The committee will place the entered models in different categories, mainly based on size. If a participant enters more than one model, and we see that two or more end up in the same category, we will give each participant the option to keep all entered models in this category, or go all in on one model.
As in previous years, GBC modules can not be entered into the People's Choice Award. The reason is simple - it's very difficult to explain to the audience that we want them to judge one module, and not the whole GBC setup. To fix this problem, we have a separate GBC categori in the internal MOC competition with some nice prices! If you want to enter a GBC into this category, it must comply 100% with the GBC standard, and it can not have been on display at PKH before.
The form for entering MOCs into the competitions is the same form as the one for entering MOCs into the exhibition. You just have to tick the box for entering your model into the internal MOC competition and/or the Public Choice Award. Log in and go to your profile to find the MOC registration form.
If anything is unclear - please do not hesitate to ask! THe best place is this thread over on Brikkelaguets forum.
Deadline for entering MOCs into the competitions: April 7th No MOCs can be entered into the competitions after this date. However, withdrawing a model is allowed.
