Who Judges the Contests ?

Who judges the contests ? The Sponsors or Instructables ?
I ask because I noticed that the Little Bits contest and the Microprocessor contest both have 8 of the same finalists. Does that mean one instructable can win more than one contest at the same time ?

Check out all the details of contests in the FAQ.


As far as my knowledge goes, it is judged by staff, members and sometimes the sponsors. One instructable can indeed win more than one contest, but there is a limit per instructable that doesn't allow you to enter it in more than three contests.

It's a roughly 50/50 split - half are selected through the voting process, and half are directly chosen by staff & sponsors.

They all enter the final judging process on an equal footing.
