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 contest finalists 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!

If it’s not a good time for you to judge when we contact you, no worries. We always try to assign more judges than we need in case something comes up.

You can find out more about judging a contest here.

Don't worry!  Judges are selected after finalists are selected, so volunteering to judge will not affect your chances of being a finalist in any contest you enter.

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

Thanks for helping us keep the site awesome!
