A small build can make a big difference - and bring joy to up to 1.5 million children in need this holiday season.
We need your help to reach our target! So grab your bricks, build a star holiday creation and share it with us in this Activity. For every star you submit, the LEGO Group will donate a LEGO set to a child in need.
What kind of star, you ask? Any kind! Small stars, big stars, wonderfully weird stars... Every size and shape of a star is awesome, and every star counts. Happy building and happy Holidays.
Want to know more about this initiative? Check out LEGO.com/BuildToGive This Activity will be open for submissions for two weeks, closing on November 23rd.
This Activity will be active until Tuesday November 30th, 2021 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.
We're interested to see builds that primarily use LEGO Brick elements.
We are looking for images in a 1:1 (square) aspect ratio.
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
Religious references including symbols, buildings, or people
Sex, nudity, drugs, or smoking
Alcohol in any present-day situation
Swearing or profanity
Death, killing, blood, terrorism, horror, or torture
First-person shooter video games
Warfare or war vehicles in any modern or present-day situation, or national war memorials
Large or human-scale weapons or weapon replicas of any kind, including swords, knives, guns, sci-fi or fantasy blasters, etc.
Racism, bullying, or cruelty to real life animals
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:
Photo submissions must be in at least full HD quality (1080 x 1080) and in a horizontal 1:1 format.
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.
You must be the original creator of all creative work you submit (the model, images, photographs, description text, etc.) and you must have the exclusive right to submit your model to this LEGO Ideas Contest. You may not submit a model or any other content made by, or on behalf of, someone else.
