Holy SHIP!

For those of you just crazy enough to try and build an entire SHIP in 30 days, may be interested in checking out this little contest/challenge that Simon Liu has organized.

Coming in SHIPtember...

Here is a brief synopsis of the challenge at hand:

One Month.
One Hundred (plus) studs.

Build SHIP must be 100 studs or longer between September 1st and October 1st. That’s it!

How do I enter?
Simple! Start building your SHIP starting on Sept 1st, and start posting WIP shots as you go so everyone can all praise your guts for building a SHIP in a month!
WIP and your final glory shots should be posted in the LEGO SHIP group:
www.flickr.com/groups/the-shipyard (HERE!)

What about [insert standard ship critiera]?
We don’t care, as long as it’s a 100+ studs and you build it all in SHIPtember we’ll be happy…
Though there will be Trophies for people that build a really good SHIP… ;)

Yup. Trophies. There will be a number of custom trophies that will be awarded in various categories. Categories will be Judged by a cabal of SHIPists who are not participating in the building (or will not be eligible for trophies/prizes). And there will also be a limited of Engraved/Printed Badges for participants

Engraved/Printed Badges!?!?
Yup, we got those covered too. What’s a trophy without a nice engraved brick? And we got some extras for SHIP Builders, and maybe a few for non builders.

Wait? why are non builders getting prizes too?
The way I see it, SHIP building doesn’t have to be a solitary affair. It seems to be one of the few builds that people typically post WIP shots leading up to the final completed SHIP. Furthermore comments and critiques offered by the larger community may actually be incorporated into the final SHIP. So I’m hoping all builders and those that can’t build will help encourage the courageous few who will be attempting to build a really cool SHIP in a month.

For further information and discussion head on over to the contest thread in the SHIPs: WIPs & Discussion flickr group.

    This ought to be good, and that’s a heck of a prize package…you can win a prize for running your mouth!? Were I not providing a trophy I’d get in on this action! Does Rutherford know..? His signal to noise is perfect for that category. Good luck dude, this sounds like fun.

    Yes, the “Rutherford” Award will be to the commentator who best crushes people’s egos, while actually offering creative criticism on people’s SHIPs.
