Entries for “BrickLink Designer Program Series 3” are open from September 19, 2023.
What is the BrickLink Designer Program (BDP)?
A project to sell fan-created creations under the BrickLink brand.
Under the “BrickLink” brand, which is a database and parts trading platform by the LEGO(R) Group, fan-created creations are packaged and sold. Some creations that are less likely to be adopted by LEGO(R) Ideas, such as adult-oriented building sets, may also be released, so all LEGO(R) block fans should check it out!
After user voting and review by the operation team, five carefully selected creations are presented in crowdfunding, and once they exceed 3,000 orders, they are approved for production.
How to Participate in BDP Series 3
The general process for BDP Series 3 includes design submission, user voting, review by the operation team, and crowdfunding.
Updated Guidelines for Series 3
