Happy Septemberfest everybody!

As promised, this announcement is for a little spinoff contest from the epic The Citizen of the Year LIVES contest.

Just what is it? I'll give you a hint: It doesn't involve brickfilming! What you need to do is...

Create an awesome Septemberfest artwork in the spirit of The Citizen of the Year.

It can be digital. It can be a drawing, it could be a painting. It could be a LEGO mosaic. It could be a LEGO sculpture, it could be a non-LEGO sculpture. Be creative!

This one will be judged by me.

Due to waiting on the arrival of various parts (some quite rare!) for the custom designed kits, images of some prizes are not yet available. Check back soon!

  • Large scale LEGO trash can trophy designed by Chris McVeigh*

  • A handful of LEGO parrots to put in the can

Let's keep this simple.

  • No mature/explicit content is allowed. This includes, but is not limited to: excessive/gory violence, overt sexual content, and blatant drug references.

  • Entrants may only submit one entry per person.

  • Feel free to share your artwork in progress, or post it before the deadline as you wish. Or don't. It's up to you.

We're in danger.

Time to come up with something completely off the wall.

I might make something for this, probably a drawing but a sculpture might be cool.

How much gore is considered excessive?

As I'm not aware of any standardized metric for measuring gore, let's go with the "If you have to ask, it's probably too much" approach.

Even if it's dead birds in a trash can? It seems kind of appropriate, albeit slightly disgusting.

Re: Septemberfest: The Citizen of the Year LIVES [ART CONTEST]

The presence of dead birds shouldn't be considered gore, unless you wanted to have their guts spilling out or something.

Re: Septemberfest: The Citizen of the Year LIVES [ART CONTEST]

"Dead" plastic, toy, Lego parrots in a trash can? Sure.

A photo of real dead birds in a trash can? No thanks.

Hey, don't be down on art, man. mini/tongue

Is it weird that that's the first idea that popped into my head when this contest was announced?
