Paper Airplane Contest (Closed)

In hopes of seeing more paper airplanes and innovative designers on Instructables.com, I have decided to host a mini-contest. My goal is to stimulate the paper airplane channel and encourage more paper airplane builders to post their innovative designs. 

Performance Requirements:
Entered paper airplanes must meet or exceed these requirements:

  • Stability at all operation speeds
  • A minimum range of 30 feet
  • Durability to fly 30 feet or more after 15 flights
  • Use of less than 15 pieces of tape in construction
  • Use of less than 5 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction


Prizes:
For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 3 paper airplanes* one patch each. By default, these patches will be medals (1st place, Patch with Gold Medal image; 2nd Place, Patch with Silver Medal image; 3rd Place, Patch with Bronze Medal Image).

If the winners of the patches would like a different image, there will be a 24 hour period between the announcement of the winners and the awarding of the patches. During this time, the user would need to send me a private message with their desired picture.

*Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide, each entrant can only win one prize.


How To Enter:
To enter this contest, you must send me a private message with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic as "Entries".


Judging:
For this contest, I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance rather than shape is a more objective approach.

The contest begins Friday, December 10, 2010 and end Monday, January 10, 2011. Entries must be published before Tuesday, January 4, 2011. From January 4 to January 10, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, January 11, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, January 12, 2011.
