Let It Glow! Contest Winners

Instructables and Monkeylectric are happy to announce the winners of the Let It Glow! Contest.

The competition for this one was pretty fierce. Some very creative and crafty people entered some amazing Instructables and will be providing inspiration to other makers for a long time to come. The efficient LED was the most common tool of illumination, but there were also glowing bulbs, EL wire, candles, and even algae. It was a good show put on by all.

If you didn't win, we highly recommend you check out the prize, the m132s from Monkeylectric. The pictures of it are fantastic and it looks even better in person.

OK, on with the winners!
