This month's theme is everyday life. Many of us are always busy with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but did you notice the policeman helping the old lady cross the road? The flat tenant getting the mail for the ill neighbour? The late-running school student (still with breakfast in their mouths)? The park attendant taking a sneaky few minutes away from their work to play with a dog visiting the park? The storm trooper picking flowers for their bunk buddy? The Yorkshire men reminiscing about their childhoods?
The list is endless and neither is Brickset members creativity. While there's no parts number or usage limitations, for fairness may I ask for no sprawling displays and to keep your entries to a maximum of a 48 by 48 stud base plate, with the exception of backgrounds.
- your model must be built for the contest, not an existing MOC.
- two photographs per entry only - it helps the thread load better/at all! However feel free to upload any extra images to Flickr etc. that aren't for your entry.
- you can enter as many different models as you like so long as you make a separate post for each
- the contest closes at midnight, UK time, on 31 August, with the winner to be announced by the 4th September.
A poly bag from the mysterious box of blue: collected over many years, this box contains many poly bags both old and new, so you're in for a surprise no matter what is collected by 'the claw'!
Feel free to message me if there's any questions or concerns!
(If you'd like to volunteer to run a future monthly building contest or see what other themes are coming up, we've got a thread for that too!)

I think it's time we start bumping this thread up the lists
Wasent really sure sure how to represent carpet but I took a shot at it with the 4 long bars.
The photography is really well done @rdflego and I like your way of representing trees/woodland.
Love the vignette too @myanatt and like the detail of the little white cloud out of the window.
With only two entries so far, I'm waiting in anticipation to see what people can come up with...
He left one and a half side open since that's where the rest of the shop is ;) oh and two doors off course!
Here is my entry. I've never just made a 'facade' from a building before, so wasn't sure how I should get rid of the empty windows, if I should build a black wall or something behind it. Anyway, that's not the main thing of the build. An everyday scene in my life at the moment.
Found this an exciting challenge, thanks @MattDawson, next month it's my turn, got the idea lined up...
I'm responsible for 6,500 bus stops across Suffolk including everything from a corner of a field to multi-stand bus stations. So have to go check things are still ok, which means lots of driving around this beautiful county.
Why snow decided to use 3 16 x 32 and not 1 32 x 32 and a 16 x 32 I don't know! Also I'm loving rdf's 'no-glass glass' technique!
He's been lovely and taking good care of me (not only pushing me around but helping out at home too) so thought he deserved his own picture. The short one is my son;)
Selling real estate at work!
The rules state "- the contest closes at midnight, UK time, on 31 August, with the winner to be announced by the 4th September."
So the 16 (and now just over 14) still stands.
(We really do have a Frankenstein's Creature bust, too!)
@catwrangler that's such a familiar feeling.
