Dear BrickLink members,

Since we announced the BrickLink Designer Program back in December 2020, we have been very busy behind the scenes. Today, we are so happy to finally be ready to kick off the program and to start sharing with all of you.
The BrickLink Designer Program: 2021 Invitational is officially kicked off!

What has happened since December?
A total of 31 designs have been selected, and the LEGO Ideas 10K Club designers have been onboarded to the program.
Right now, the designers are working on the digital render of their projects, revising their designs to meet the program requirements in order to pass test building before May 31st.

Meet the LEGO Ideas 10K Club Projects in pre-production
Visit the BrickLink Designer Program landing page for your chance to see all the projects that have been entered into the program, and to follow the progress of your favorite designs from digital modeling to test building and ready for production.

Time to start the count down!
On the landing page, you can find the overall timeline for the program as well as an FAQ page that can hopefully assist you with answers to your questions. The BrickLink team will also be available to answer your questions below this post.
