As everyone knows, Builderman is super busy. He would like some new places but he hasn’t been able to find the time to design and build them. So here’s how you can help. We need your creative minds to come up with some awesome places!

Get your visual minds going and see what sort of a place you can think of for Builderman. Then you can draw it on paper and use a scanner (or take a picture of your drawing). Another option is to use a graphics program like Paint to show your idea. Be sure to include colors and even words if you like.

cottageSend your images to us and then we’ll have a vote from the users. After the top 10 designs have been selected we’ll have the best builders of the land make your ideas come to life! But don’t worry, you don’t have to build for this phase. All you have to do is draw or design a place.

Prizes
Everyone who sends their design for Builderman’s place will receive a small prize. We will show some of them on the Roblog in a parade format like with previous contests. The top 10 Designers – decided by popular vote – will receive a fabulous prize and a chance for their place to be built by a pro-builder and installed at Builderman’s account!spaceship
