THE Lego Movie has been brought to life in Launceston's central business district.

Cityprom held its Lego Building Competition judging day in the Brisbane Street Mall yesterday.

Almost 20, five to 16-year-olds entered the school holiday competition.

Cityprom promotions officer Kristy O'Byrne said entrants had a week to put together their displays before they were put on show for public judging.

Two winners took home a $200 Birchalls gift voucher.

Oliver Christmas won the five to 11-year-old category and Kahlia Monk-Morcom took out the 12 to 16-year-old section.

Brothers Noah Baker-Dowdell, 8, and Ethan Baker-Dowdell, 5, both of Trevallyn, were two of about 500 people to vote yesterday.

Ethan said his favourite was number 12.

``It looks like the Lego movie,'' he said.

He said he loved Lego.

``We've got about a million pieces.''
