Call for contest judges

Hi everyone! You might have noticed we're running tons of contests these days.

We need judges more than ever to make sure our contests keep running smoothly and fairly!

The judging process is fairly simple and normally involves looking at 15-36 finalists per contests and rating them on a scale from 1-9. Judging is typically open Friday afternoon through Monday night, though some of the larger contests have judging that runs for a week. Time spent judging is around 30 minutes to two hours - it all depends on how thorough you are!

You can find out more about judging a contest here.


To be eligible to judge, you must have posted at least ONE instructable. Let me know which contest categories you're interested to judge in the comments below:
  • Food
  • Living
  • Workshop
  • Outdoor
  • Tech
  • Play

Audrey and I will be pulling judges randomly from the topic based on need and sending ballots out as contests close. If it's not a good time for you to judge, no worries! I always try to assign more judges than I need in case something comes up.

Also, keep in mind that if you end up as a finalist in a contest you won't be allowed to judge.
