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?

Christmas contest!!!!!

I have so many ideas for a spying contest!!

Would anybody like an Ancient Civilizations contest? I would love one!

I would like to see a "small engines" contest. I would definitely enter in that one.

An "Engines & Motors" contest, perhaps?

Similar to what Nicolas Britos wrote

I can't find the comment by nicolas that you're referring to. But I would like a contest that is specifically for smaller engines, I want to see people build motorized stuff. And have an excuse to build another motorized bicycle.

I don't think it reaches out to enough people for it to justify a sponsor providing expensive prizes, but that could be a small challenge.

This was his comment: "A car-related instructables. From little homemade RC cars to actual modifications of a real car"

I think it reaches out to more people than a lot of the contests we have had lately. I'm talking about all the ones that pretty much require you to have stuff like 3D printers and other specialized equipment. Plenty of people love to tinker with small engines.

how about a collaboration contest?
