  • LEGO expo comp HOME
Why so expensive? The Art of the Brick Exhibition” by the LEGO® is one of the world’s most popular shows of 2015, and taking it to the world isn’t cheap! But SAJR Online has secured dozens of FREE tickets so that it is more affordable, or free, for our lucky users. This expo in Rosebank is a treat for anyone between 4 & 104. Does that mean you? Then check out how to win your share in one of two ways. Oh, and enjoy the show! And, don’t forget, you can still win one of 6 books by Howard Feldman.

To make sure everyone can participate, we are offering users two ways to win the dozens of free tickets to the incredible The Art of the Brick Exhibition” by the Lego® which is running in The Zone in Rosebank in Johannesburg, until August 2.


Published 8 July: FIRST PRIZE-WINNERS & MORE TICKETS TO BE WON

Competitions 2015 logoTwo lucky families with clever little brick-builders will win tickets for the whole family worth almost R500 – while other users wishing to follow the easier route can still win one of dozens of single tickets. All in all we are giving away tickets worth a whopping R8 000 to our users over the next three weeks. And, with ticket prices for adults at R140 (and kids at R95) making it more affordable, or free, is not too shabby an idea.

SA Jewish Report Online has two family tickets worth almost R500 each to give away and a stunning 50 more single tickets! We will be giving the single tickets away in three weekly tranches - and hold some back for the winners of the family prizes – because, as we all know, Jewish families can be pretty big!

Check out the great SAJR Online revue by DAVID KATZ on THE ART OF THE BRICK EXHIBITION, published earlier this month. The Cape Town Waterfront season had to be extended earlier this year but the Johannesburg season won’t be – because the venue has been booked for the World’s #1 Expo of 2015 – and we’ll be giving away tickets for that one too. But you will have to wait until August before we reveal what it is.

So, here the tachlis on the competition – or, better still, think of them as two separate competitions…

Firstly, SA Jewish Report will be giving away to two families, family tickets that their kids will have to win by building something with ego® - - we’re not talking architectural geniuses here, but ingenuity.

 Lego 1.

How to win one of the family prizes

This competition requires school-goers to build something with Lego and have a parent or guardian send a picture of it to the South African Jewish Report Online.

LEGO PrimaryUp for grabs are free tickets for two families worth almost R500 each – and we may throw in more tickets if the standard of the winning entries warrants it.

COMPETITION #2 

BELOW THIS ONE

The judging panel is not looking for engineers, geniuses, architects or sculptors – simply for players who use Lego blocks creatively in an age-appropriate manner. Jewish Report is hoping for as many entries as possible because Lego will give us regular product prizes to give away to you if we can show them how many of our users are also their users.

A pre-schooler who can stack 12 blocks on top of each other with a consistent colour combination may even win. All entries will be adjudicated with the age of the builder in mind.

Even a Lego set built according to their wonderfully illustrated diagrams, can win. The entry does not have to be a marvel of ingenuity.

    Have loved Lego since I was a kid. Also love Art. The combination of the two together sounds magical - the kid in me will love it.

    Our 2 married sons grew up with LEGO and my husband and I now have the pleasure of seeing them both interacting with their own children (our grandchildren) with LEGO - deriving the same pleasure we experienced in seeing a child's imagination and creativity growing through the stimulation of  LEGO, and thriving on the interaction and communication between parent and child, which playing with LEGO
     facilitates..I would love to take my 3 SA grandchildren
