The Brick Train Awards are a virtual, global competition to showcase LEGO® train builders from around the world.

The 2020 awards have 10 categories to judge the best LEGO® models for LEGO® locomotives, rolling stock and train displays. Each category is judged regionally, and the winners of each category then compete against each other in global awards.

The rewards started as a response to the fact that much of the world was locked in due to COVID-19, giving fans of LEGO® trains around the world a chance to meet and compete on an international level.
