The Quick Short Advertising Contest was a brickfilming competition run by Leonardo Escobar on the Bricks in Motion forums in 2009. The aim of the contest was to produce a 30-second brickfilm advertisement for a product, real or fictitious.


The contest was started on February 9, 2009.[1] It was sponsored by the website Moving Bricks, which was a little-used brickfilm directory site started by Escobar in 2007 that listed all submissions without making them go through a review panel and acceptance process.[2] Entries were required to be submitted between the 15th and the 22nd of March. Originally, they were not permitted to be shared before the deadline, but due to requests from entrants, this was changed to allow entries to be shared from the 17th of February.

Judging and prizes[]

The entries were judged in the categories of Entertainment Value, Product Promotion and Technical Quality. The judging panel consisted of people from outside the brickfilming community.

Two prizes were offered, one for the first place winner and also a bonus prize to be awarded to another entry of Escobar's choosing. The first place prize was a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000 and the bonus prize was 8401 LEGO City Minifigure Collection.
