Paper Airplane Contest 10 (Closed)

After several of my contests drew no entries last year, I decided to give the community a break and wait a while before hosting another contest. As a result, this contest has come 6 months after its closest predecessor began. In addition, the requirements for aircraft have been greatly relaxed.

Requirements:

1. Aircraft Requirements:
  • Ability to fly at least 10 feet
  • Aircraft must be named
2. Instructable Requirements:
  • 1 page strictly devoted to materials required in construction
  • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft
  • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)"
  • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page:
This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 10.”

Prizes:
For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 paper airplane instructables* one patch each. Each patch will feature its respective aircraft. The first place winner will also receive one 1 year Instructables.com Pro membership. The second place winner will also receive two 3-month Instructables.com Pro memberships. The third place winner will also receive one 3-month Instructables.com Pro membership.

Prize Distribution:

1st Place:
1 Patch
One Instructables 1 Year Pro Membership

2nd Place:
1 Patch
2 Instructables 3 Month Pro Memberships

3rd Place:
1 Patch
1 Instructables 3 Month Pro Membership
 
*Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one patch.

How to Enter:
To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My Paper Airplane [Your Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries".

Judging:
I will judge entries based on aircraft performance, and quality and presentation of its instructable. The contest begins Monday, March 12, 2012 and ends Friday, April 20, 2012. Entries must be published between these two dates. From April 20 to April 22, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Monday, April 23, 2012 and issue them their prizes Tuesday, April 24, 2012.
