List of Upcoming Contests (updated 8/09/16)

PLEASE GO HERE TO SEE OUR NEW CONTEST LIST ON FACEBOOK:
https://www.facebook.com/instructables/events

Hello everyone! It was recently suggested that we should have a list of upcoming contests available on the site. This was something we used to do in our author newsletter, but now it will have a permanent place on the forums. :D

The contests below are already in planning, and I've left off ones that we're still trying to decide on. Big sponsored contests also might not show up on here - sometimes it's a big time crunch at the end, so I won't be able to plan in advance. Keep in mind that the list below is not set in stone. We're always finding fancy new companies to supply prizes so dates are subject to change!

I cannot wait for the Vegan Challenge contest! I love making Vegan desserts, so I know this one is going to be exciting :)

So the yarn contest says anything with yarn as the main product---does that include unspun fibers?

I doubt it - fibre ain't yarn.

Fiber becomes yarn

Nothing this side of February for me it appears.

They still haven't finished planning everything...

True, but I'm not holding my breath.

Sci-Fi could be something for you. You could build a plane looking like one from a movie. The Remix contest may also be interesting. Maybe the "Bag Contest" allows making things from bags.

The Sci-Fi contest is the closest I can imagine I could fit into of the given list; with that said I do actually have this Star Wars Tie Fighter prototype sitting around. It performs well and has shown itself capable in testing--I've just passed it over for publications in favor of other projects thus far.

Perhaps that'll change when that contest begins, I'm not sure.

Can't wait for the knives and blades contest! I think I'll do a japanese yari or something similar
