Yet again, we're running Build to Give this year! We want to give the gift of play to even more children around the world and so are asking you to start the countdown to the holiday season by building and sharing holiday ornaments - a tree decoration, windowsill display, a fireside scene – anything you like! This year we want you to give the holidays a twist by incorporating what you love into your build. For example, how could you make a tree topping decoration that showcases your passion for dragons, or how could you inject your love of animals into a table centre-piece?! You might get to see your own ornament design on LEGO channels when we enter the holiday season, inspiring others to participate in the joy of building.
Build to Give is an initiative run by The LEGO Group, where we help turn LEGO bricks into donations to children in need of play. More information can be found using this link: https://www.lego.com/build-to-give
Please keep the background of your photos as clean/neutral as possible!
This Activity will be active until December 23rd, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. CEST (4 a.m. EST).
Acceptable Entry Content
Although you're welcome to base your build on an intellectual property (IP) (such as Star Wars, Ferrari, etc) and use LEGO elements that only exist in IP sets (i.e. a printed cockpit only found in a LEGO Star Wars set), using IP related references or elements items in your build would limit The LEGO Group in potentially sharing your work on LEGO Social Media. Therefore, if you wish to potentially have your design featured then make sure to keep it fully original and using generic LEGO elements only.
Contest entries related to the topics below do not fit our brand values and will not be approved for publication on LEGO Ideas:
Politics and political symbols, campaigns, or movements

Entry Quality Standards
We still want your Activity entries to have a certain image quality as it makes browsing them much nicer for all members. Therefore please take note of the following image quality guidelines:
Although we encourage building with physical LEGO bricks, you may submit digital entries using LEGO Digital Designer, which is available for download via this link free of charge. Any entries made in LEGO Digital Designer should not show the baseplate from build mode. You may also create digital entries using third-party LEGO CAD software, such as Mecabricks, Bricklink's Studio or other.
You may use photo editing software, such as Photoshop, to enhance your entry’s presentation.
Make sure your photos are well-lit, not blurry, in a reasonably high resolution, preferably have a neutral background (no background clutter please).
Please note, that any and all entry images, will be cropped to a square aspect ratio. Please be aware of this when you're trying to enter this activity.
