Makerlympics Contest




days left



2014 is the year of the winter quadrennial international sporting event series that rhymes with Shmalympics. (It's trademarked.) Now that Instructables is available in 5 more languages (now with more Brazilian Portuguese!), we figured we could throw our own version of the aforementioned quadrennial sporting event.

Enter the Makerlympics! It's a catch-all contest with prizes going to the judges' favorite entries within each category: Food, Living, Workshop, Tech, Play, and Outside. Grand Prize winners in each category will win a sweet wi-fi camera to help document another year's worth of DIY projects. Runners-up will all receive an Instructables prize pack.

Winners will also receive "gold" and "silver" maker medals!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), February 3, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, February 24, 2014.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
