The 8*8*8 contest is an annual brickfilming contest hosted on Brick à Brack. The aim of the contest is to create a brickfilm where all LEGO featured remains within a space measuring 8 studs in length and width and 8 bricks in height. It was first hosted in 2010 by "Ministorm Production" and has been hosted by various others since, with "Ministorm Production" returning as the host for the sixth 8*8*8 in 2014. No prizes are given for the contest, although a recurring joke is to list the prize for winning as an "imaginary box of chocolates".
