Picture of How To Enter the Pocket-Sized Contest
Making a great small project is a fun challenge. It's about working within constraints to see how much stuff you can fit into a little tin, or creating something small enough to carry around and easily show others.

Due to popular request, we're bringing back one of our favorite contests - the Pocket-Sized Contest!

Any entry that can fit in a pocket can be entered. Rule of thumb: if you have to describe the pocket the item would fit into, it's not pocket-sized. So those big baggy cargo pants pockets are out. Think small, palm-sized, and easily pocketable.

So show us something awesome and win a Leatherman Squirt P4-Pocket Multi-Tool with a custom laser-etching. You can add your name, a (very) short message, or even a little logo. We'll also be giving you an Instructables Robot t-shirt and some other goodies.

Check out last year's winners for inspiration. Now get creative, and think small!

First Prize (3 winners)
One Leatherman Squirt P4-Pocket Multi-Tool with custom laser-etching.
Plus an Instructables Robot t-shirt, patch, and stickers.



Judges Prize for Best Green Entry (1 winner)
Signed copy of The Best of Instructables Volume I


Runner-Up Prize (4 winners)
Instructables Robot t-shirt, patch, and stickers.

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

This is my first contest and I was wondering if I can enter more than 1 Instructable.
Yup. From above. "Multiple entries are allowed, but each entrant can only win one prize."

Are there any regulations concerning the location of contestants. I am asking this Because I was not able to enter some of the past contest dew to my self being in Quebec.
Yup. From above. "International entries are OK."

I've never entered an Instructables contest before. I take it I cannot submit a previously created Instructable; it has to be new. Am I correct in this assumption?
Yes
To the drawing board, then!
tankguy5 years ago
I have a problem. I made my instructable and submitted it into the contest on the publishing screen where you choose the contest's you want to enter it into and it was in time and everything. but for some reason it is always pending moderator approval even though it meets the requirments.Could you please check it out? Just look in my profile for bottle cap crossbow ( it's my only instructable so it will be easy to find)

you are asking someone who posted in binary to make their text more readable? 0074 0068 0061 0074 2019 0073 0020 0073 0069 006C 006C 0079 0021

I know this is binary but, I don't have the time to decode it. Or else it's random shit.
Try this
Awsome!
