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?

Strange musical instruments

I think a Santa's Workshop Contest would be awesome.

As makers, we often have lots of money sunk into tools, equipment, and materials that we could share to help others make special inexpensive handmade Holliday gifts that they would be proud to give.

For example, while it might only cost me a few dollars to make a nice custom leather journal, my friends might have to pay upwards of $100 to get everything they need to make their first one. This would cost significantly more than just buying one already made. They might not need a whole bottle of dye or a whole package of snaps, but they would have to buy them and then store them.

It would be inspiring to see others sharing their tools and knowledge, and interesting to see how people would overcome the challenges: how do you share equipment, configure work stations for a group, choose projects, divide material costs, etc.
