Make it Glow Contest

Does anyone know what happened to the Make it Glow contest (ended 12/31)?  I can't find it anywhere on the site through general navigation (recently closed contests).  It was sponsored by Radio Shack and I now see in the Contest FAQ that "We recently discontinued our sponsor/prize provider program for sponsor contests."  Did the plug get pulled on this contest?

Thank you!

Hello everyone! We were in fact waiting on Radio Shack all this time. We just recently heard back from them and will be announcing finalists shortly.

The reason the contest disappeared from the main contest page is that it basically "timed-out" without being updated with finalists and winners within the normal time frame, and was automatically bumped to the contest archive. The direct link provided below by both Kiteman and Downunder35 will take you there, or you can select the "Contest Archive" button from the top right of the contest page.

This is a bit of a bug that we are now aware of with long-delayed contests such as this one, and will work to resolve it.

Finalists and winners will be contacted through PMs and email, just like normal, and the Make it Glow! contest will reappear on the main contest page when finalists are announced.

Well at least we know now what is going on.
Maybe for future contests it would be a good idea to state when the contest was closed (in case there is a delay too), when the actual judging was finnished and finally that everyone is now waiting for the sponsor to agree to the winners.

The chaos and confusion has to stop somewhere ;)

As a general point, when contests are delayed like this, it would be good if somebody could keep the members updated...?

The only thing worse than waiting for a sonsor is having to explain to all the newbies every time this happens.

I concur. And the correct parties have been poked, ever so gently...

Well its good to know they have at least been poked. At least an update on the contest page would have been great but I didnt make it to finals anyway :~(.

Maybe I can enter the final project in something later.

Only gently?


whew, we thought they were going to invoke Ibles Contest Fine Print Rule #14, also known as the "Balk rule."

The music contest has disappeared from the contest page.
