It is photo contest time.
Yes, you read it right. A creative photography contest, and a fun little LEGO challenge, with three fantastic prices. We are giving away not one, not two but three complete sets of The LEGO Old Fishing Store. This set is also known as the LEGO Ideas Set 21310 which we first learned about at the RLFM days and blow our socks away.
What do you need to do to win one of these iconic sets?
Take a creative photo of Anton.
Simply take a creative photo of Anton. Anton is the 4cm tall main character in the old Fishing Store. Make him tour your own city, take him to the countryside or on your next vacation. Then post your creative toy photography on the social media platforms of your choice and tag it using #whereisanton, #stuckinplastic and #LEGOOldFishingStore.
Once you did that, come back to this page and tell us in the comments below where you have shared it. Flickr, Facebook, Google+, 500px or even your own blog. We can’t keep track of all the channels and media and we wouldn’t want to miss your awesomeness. So do share the link with us (it goes without saying that the works need to be publicly visible, so private IG feeds or the like wont work, we want to see your images).
Win your own LEGO Old Fishing Store.
We will choose the three lucky winners by selecting our favorites photos based on creativity and photographic quality and we will feature the works also here on the blog.
By tagging your images to the three hashtags and participating in this creative contest, you agree that your images may be picked up by SiP (us) and or TLG (The LEGO Group) for promotion purposes. While we, of course, give credit to the original artists.
The selection of the winners is done by the SiP jury based on artistic creativity and photographic qualities. The outcome of the jury is final.
The deadline for submissions is no later than September 24th (your local time zone applies). We will look at all entries from day one and being first in a creative idea may help sometimes. We will announce the winners during the week after here on the blog, and no later as October 1st, 2017.
So, get creative and show Anton and his cat around your place.
I have shared my photo to Instagram. Great fun! @brickologie
Julien’s photos have made me very interested in this set! I’ll try to think of a scene for Anton and come up with an entry :-)
I have posted mine to Instagram
Hi Antons !! My old fisher friend is now on Instagram and Twitter :)
Awesome, keep them coming !
I uploaded one photo! (@legoschmidt)
Several entries from me over in my Instagram feed (@stepping_on_bricks)
I have shared my photos on instagram. 1 in my pantry, 2 my lego building dining table, 3 mock up of alone tv show set on Vancouver island British Columbia. More to come, loving the inspiration
I have just shared a photo on instagram. Don’t be Koi! Young Anton caught a fish with his bare hands in the creek. Piara Waters Western Australia.
I just shared my version of Anton on my Instagram account @annvanbreemen. Hopefully I’ll have a real Anton soon.

My little story of Anton continues https://www.instagram.com/p/BYnhyuNhV2T/?hl=ru&taken-by=legoschmidt
I think it’s time for Anton to meet his old pals in Istanbul :) Fishing season has already begun.
They can visit Bosphorus and Princes’ Islands together. Then he can join us on a trip to Greek islands, if he wants, because our toys are good travel companions ;)
The search for Anton has begin, check it out in my instagram @lngher.wk
I’ve really enjoyed making photos for this competition. #admiralanton has been all over sunny Perth, Fremantle and Bunbury in Western Australia with me for the last week and the pictures are on instagram @legoadmiralackbar
Seem some great entries on there – superb work everyone!
Anton came to Tricity and one of the first places he visited was Gdańsk Shipyard.
Of course between shipyard’s cranes he saw fishing rods.
Next stop: Sopot!
P.S. how many entries to this contest are possible?
just posted another one on instagram
I posted everything on g+. You can find few of the photos on instagram @nutelasabe, but they are just duplicates. It’s easier to post on g+ from a laptop or a desktop than to post on instagram :) Having fun with this contest :) Although I’m sorry that Anton didn’t arrive before I went to Cambridge :/ and I’m ill right now, and it’s raining for the past few days, so no pictures of Brno yet :( But I’m taking Anton to Crete, where I will definitely take some photos. And maybe after I return, I will be able to… Read more »
This one was a tough one for me but here’s my first entry: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZH8vvahsxX/
Hi I’ve been posting about Anton’s life on instagram over the course of the competition, where is Anton either physically or developmentally from childhood to first date, his love of fishing and his search for the perfect job for him. I’m getting near the finale now but it’s been wonderful imagining his life and being along for the ride. I can’t wait to enter the next competition and see where the inspiration takes me.
I’ve shared my photos on Instagram @brickeyed This has been fun exploring where Anton is
Keep on sharing all the great entries. We do not want to comment to all of you individually here in this thread, but we are reading them all and taking notes. Awesome work. Keep it coming.

A middle aged Anton decided to visit Lost Lake, Alaska on a gloomy day.
I put all the photos into one album on Flickr for convenience. https://flic.kr/s/aHsm4oHbvT
I had a lot of fun doing this, though it was a bit nippy especially after getting my feet wet.
