BrickLink and the LEGO Group are celebrating 60 years of the LEGO brick with the AFOL community by realising unique designs with truly original themes. Through this program, your design can become a limited edition LEGO 60th Anniversary set — accepting entries from 18th September. here’s all the details you need….
The program will have three main phases:
1. Accepting entries – To give you some time to think about what you’d like to design, we will begin accepting entries September 18th until November 18th. The LEGO design team will review your submissions made with Studio 2.0, and up to 20 finalists will be selected.
2. Crowdfunding – Selected designs will be announced and displayed for crowdfunding beginning February 2019. You will be able to pre-order designs at this time.
3. Release – Successfully crowdfunded designs will become a limited edition 60 Years Anniversary set exclusively available on BrickLink. We will begin shipping orders April 2019.
Why should I submit my designs?
Besides being able to share your designs with the AFOL community, your designs will also be reviewed and produced as limited edition box sets without design modification. On top of that, BrickLink will pay 10% of total sales revenue to designers for all successfully crowdfunded AFOL designs including pre-order. You will retain full IP rights for non-selected designs, meaning you can freely use your original designs for any other purpose after the event.
Even if you aren’t a designer, we’d still love everyone to get involved! You can share your ideas with the AFOL community in the Studio 2.0 forum.
Ready to get started?
The AFOL Designer Program requires that your designs are built with Studio 2.0, which has improved functionality and new features for this program. A building palette made specifically for the AFOL Designer Program will be included so that you are able to focus more on the design itself. Next, check if your design is stable with the all-new stability check because we want to fall for designs, not have them fall apart. Then you can export breathtaking images and even create building instructions for your designs!

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
The BrickLink Team
From the FAQ’s we learn that no IP related builds are bring accepted; unfortunately that means no Star Wars themed sets. We look forward to see what’s created and made — happy building!
