The Summer Contest 2018 (stylized as #SummerContest2018) was a brickfilming event hosted on Brick à Brack in 2018.[1] The event was composed of 8 challenges which were spread out over 9 weeks, from July 2 to September 2, 2018. Each challenge had a different theme related to the making of a brickfilm, from the preproduction stage to the postproduction. Participants were freely allowed to enter or skip any of the challenges, and entries were allowed in either English or French.

The contest is notable for its large amount of prizes totalling at least 24 prizes, with each week's top 3 contestants receiving a LEGO set or coupon code. The judging panel consisted of many members, both English-speaking and French. Most of the judges only rated a few of the challenges, allowing some of them to participate in some challenges as well as judge on others.

A year later, Brick à Brack would follow up with a similar event, the Summer Contest 2019.

Week 1 - Writing[]

The first week of the contest was a writing challenge from July 2 to July 8. The scripts had to be written in French or English and the theme was suitcase. The winner won the LEGO set 60144 Race Plane, while second place and third place won the 60135 ATV Arrest and 41599 Wonder Woman sets, respectively.[2]

In total, the challenge received 39 entries,[3] which were judged by a jury of four members. The results were announced on July 24.[4][5]
