LED Contest




days left



Our LED Contest is back! We're happy about this because we love LEDs and we know that many of you out there love them as well. So let's see what awesome ideas are out there with a contest!

The rules are super-simple. In fact, there's just one rule to be aware of: to enter the contest your Instructable must involve at least one LED. That's it. Your project can be very small or truly epic, it just needs to involve LEDs in some way.

For prizes we are once again teaming up with the cool folks at Phenoptix. First prize includes everything you need to build two kits: the floodlight and the MR16. To make it even better we're throwing in a custom laser-etched Leatherman Juice and our Instructables Prize Pack which includes a one-year Pro membership, t-shirt, and more! Runners-up will get the MR16 kit and the Instructables Prize Pack.

So what are you waiting for? Get out your LEDs and make something great!
