Many of you were introduced to BrickForge through the myriad of MOC-building and minifig-creating contests circling the web over the past few years. In addition to our own forum-based competitions we’ve sponsored over 100 independent contests and given away thousands of items. We currently do not sponsor independent Flickr contests.
In 2011 we encouraged BrickForge fans who used Flickr to simply tag their photos and add them to the BrickForge Group Pool to be automatically entered into our weekly Flickr drawing for a chance to win a $15.00 gift certificate to our website. Our Smithies also organized a few forum-hosted competitions to provide customizers additional chances of winning BrickForge SWAG.
This year we are doing things a bit different. For starters, our weekly Flickr prize drawing will be limited to a $5.00 gift certificate. This will allow us to concentrate more prize money to our forum-based contests. Instead of a mish-mash of challenges we are scheduling two separate contests for the Spring and Fall seasons. This gives our Smithys and other officers plenty of time to prepare and get the word out to more people. It will also allow us to work around other popular website contests we currently sponsor. Prizes will be listed at the commencement of each contest. To read more about our incredible contests, please visit the contest page and keep and monitor the Tournament Ring section of the forum.
