Makerspace Contest 2017 is live! Enter today!

**I just want to remind everyone that it is fine to find people to join with to make a team BUT remember that you must be within 150 miles of each other and that you will have to SHARE the prizes. So whoever you choose to be Team Captain will be getting the prizes and will be in charge of making sure everyone gets to use them.**

You read that right! The Makerspace Contest will be happening again this year.

The contest is open for entries on June 1st and closes on August 31st. It will be similar to last year with just some updates to the prizes including a focus on Featured Instructables and fun new Individual prizes. That's right; you can help your team win some awesome prizes and also win something all for yourself.

This forum topic is for you to ask questions about the contest, converse about making as a team, and just chat with other teams competing in the competition. Find more details on the Contest Page.

Remember, if you want to participate, you need to register your team, get a team code, and wait until June 1st to start posting.

Have fun and happy making!

Is there a way to see all the team tags?

I know I can use this url if I know the team's code (, but how do I find other teams' codes? I'd like to be able to look at all the projects by the top teams to see what sort of stuff they are making.

Since posting this a site update seems to have removed the option to link to a specific keyword :(

I can search for the keyword but it sometimes turns up instructables that aren't part of the team's entry.

Is there another way to see all a team's instructables? At a certain point there gets to be too many entries to collect in a collection.

I'm trying to find out if there is another way to search keywords. I'll let you know what I find out!

Sounds like that existing link/search ability should hopefully be fixed in the near future!

That's great news. Thanks for looking into it for me!

I think it's working again now.

Yes it would be interesting to see teams' members and projects!

We've started a collection with YuKonstruct's team entries here:

I have a problem. I posted an instructable, but I didn't add it to the makerspace contest at the start cause I wasn't sure if it was going to get featured, and I had other contests that I could put it in. It did get featured, but now I can't put it in the makerspace contest. Is there any way I can still enter that instructable in the makerspace contest?
