Instructables
Picture of How To Enter the Arduino Contest
Arduinos are awesome - with one simple controller, you can make almost anything! What new things can you make with Arduino? We've teamed up with the creative folks at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories and the Arduino Team on an Arduino contest to find out.

The rules are simple: to enter you must make a new Instructable that involves the Arduino IDE. You can use any hardware that you like, or none at all. Be sure to provide the code you used so that others can follow in your footsteps. Make something amazing and win a sweet Meggy Jr RGB from Evil Mad Science or an Arduino Mega from the Arduino Team to power your next project!

So what are you waiting for? Document a project you've been meaning to write up, or make something new! We can't wait to see what it is.

International entries are OK.
Multiple entries to the contest are allowed, but each entrant can only win one prize.

Can we add one Instructable to two different contests? Sorry if this has already been answered, I can't find it.

Lets say I in the process of making an Arduino Instructables, and then the Halloween contest opens up. Can I make my Arduino project Halloween themed, and add it to the Halloween contest, too?

Thanks in advance!
Absolutely!
