What kinds of contests do YOU want to see on Instructables?

Hi everyone! As we're planning contests for the next year, we wanted to get suggestions and feedback on the types of contests we're running. :D

Is there a contest we ran years ago you'd like to see again?
Any contests you're sick of?
A weekly challenge you'd like us to expand on?
Do you want the contests to be more specific or more open ended?

We're trying to shake things up in contest-land - so any and all suggestions are welcome! I'm especially interested in what types of tech contests you guys would like to see, as well as ideas for food contests. 

P.S. For anyone wondering about weekly challenges - we're still trying to figure out a way to do it that makes it easy for you guys to enter and easy for the editors here to run. But I promise we are discussing it! :)

Have prize suggestions? Check this topic.
Want to get a preview of some of our upcoming contests?

I'd love to see a health/fitness challenge. Anything related to physical or mental health, exercise, nutrition, physical/mental therapy, yoga, meditation, DIY workout equipment, etc.

Even I would like to see one related to fitness!

I remember two contests that I really liked:

-the "how to play ..." contest, because I learned some new games and some were really creative.

-and the "epic fail" contest, because you can see the fails of makers (which is quite rare here, because no one likes to publish when something fails), and learn more from these fails.

And to finish more "design challenges"!
