Summer Challenge Rules:
-To create a 52" x 40" (1320mm x 1020mm) summertime themed layout – no height restrictions
-The layout track plan which should be followed is included in the video and will be emailed to each participant, upon entering themselves into the challenge.
-The layout must be summertime themed and feature all Hornby products where possible – only Hornby rolling stock to be used. We will accept entries that include scenic products not produced by us. Hornby products are preferred where possible though.
-The layout should be named and a small paragraph of information provided about the design, which can be fictitious or based on an actual location/railway (this information is to be provided at the end of the challenge when the final images/videos are provided). 100 words is advisable, but more is acceptable.
-Creativity to key – we are looking for unique designs, so any arts and crafts that are included will be accepted.
-To enter yourself into the competition you must email [email protected] confirming your full name and age – we will then add you to the entrant list. Deadline for confirming your participation is 9th August at 12pm midday BST.
-The challenge will be split into two categories: 16s and under and over 16.
-All layout images/videos will be judged by Fuzz Townsend and Pete Waterman – the more images and videos provided the better! The judges will select their favourite three layouts from each category and then the winner for each category will go down to a social media vote. The most liked layout image will be granted the winner following the set-out voting deadlines (below).
-Please ensure all images and videos are clear and in focus.
-The chosen winner from each category will receive a bundle of Hornby products worth £1000 RRP! Which will be sent to the winner following the announcement and within 28 days. If we do not hear from the winner within 28 days of being announced, the prize will be provided to the runner up.
-The two runners up in each category will receive surprise Hornby goody bags.
-The layout must be completed within the set times provided:
Step 1 deadline: 9th August – all entrants to provide images (plus videos if they wish) of the layout base, featuring the track and ground level scenic.
Step 2 deadline: 30th August – all entrants to provide images (plus videos if they wish) of the risen scenery, ie buildings, structures, trees etc.
