Contest vs. Challenge? Answered

In the Contests area of the site, some contests are labled as a Contest while others as a Challenge.  What is the difference between Contest and Challenge.  Just want to be sure I am entering these under that proper conditions. Thanks, TheWaterDog

Contests being judged

Seems like there is a lag in announcing winners of current Contests being judged that ended on the 20th.

Has this site ever had a Halloween Contest?

I am a MAJOR Halloween fanatic and I was wondering if Instructables has ever held a Halloween contest. If so, what are the rules and conditions? What are the subcategories that will be allowed (ie, masks, costumes, props, etc.)?

ideas for future contests

There could be a contest on how to judge the contest. I expect winners to be something that took thinking, presented well and also very unique. Things that have been sold for years in stores, done handmade...and things that are all over the Internet...made before...do not seem to be first prize winners in my thoughts.... perhaps if you had a contest..you could get all the things people expect from your contests.. .put these items in excel and give points to every thing the project excels at.. ..that is how we pick our scholarship winners for high school alumni each year...

Hi All:I submitted an entry to the "holiday decoration" contest on last Sunday and it hasn't appeared. I see new entries appearing, but not mine. I'm wondering if I did something wrong (likely, as I'm a first time author) or it wasn't accepted for some reason.Thanks!!ambPS: here is the link...https://www.instructables.com/id/PVC_Christmas_Tree_lighted_yard_decoration/

Contests On Time?

I have a question, how come every time it says a contests ends, for example "wear it contest, judging ends Oct 28, 2014"   You guys never actually show the winners until much later? Its Oct 30 and still no sign. I really want to see if the instructable I voted for won! Is my computer just late to get the results or does it take a long time to show the winners? No offense but you guys really should follow your deadlines better. (Please don't think im rude, Im really just wondering why its delayed so much) Anyway, Thanks for listening to my feedback.

What is the penalty for voting for yourself in an Instructables Contest? Answered

So I noticed the rules state that you can't vote for yourself in contests. If you do, does the vote get excluded or is the Instructable disqualified? I am trying to figure out what I need to do to make my Instructables better and this is something I've been doing incorrectly. Thanks.

Can you win more than one prize?

I'm looking at the protected contest, and I see, "Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize." Does this mean, if I have 2 entries in this contest and win for both, I would only get one prize? Or, can I only win for one entry? Or, is it a simple typo and should read "Multiple entries are accepted, but each entry can only win one prize." ?

Asked by jOker58 2 years ago


should I give up on entering contests/posting detailed unique ideas?

Disheartened by contest results, I really feel like pulling some of my instructables and not publishing any further ones (I am taking some time right now to work on another project I was documenting for instructables but I feel like there isn't a point to the extra time involved in pausing to take pictures of every little thing).  It probably seems silly, but I did end up shoving a whole bunch of my priorities aside to make sure it was in before the deadline. My original idea was not among the top 5%, some of which were things I could buy derivatives of in a store or have definitely seen before.  I guess I am just looking for affirmation that this is a pretty commonplace occurrence, and as a first time contest entrant that eventually something will pan out and I'll wind up with a tshirt (I mean that's pretty much all I want out of the deal, the prizes are nice but the tshirts are cooler. not that anyone would really ask about them, but maybe when I visit geek-saturated areas...) if I keep trying.   Perhaps I was too confident and it takes way more than 50 hours to make a winning instructable (through all my trials and errors, it might have been more than 50) You could tell me that my pictures or use of language were not as good as the others, but I am pretty sure I have a decent command of the English language and most of my photos were ok, with the exception of having a few from a cellphone, in the dimly lit space I had to work in.  Granted, those steps were so self-explanatory others would've just added them as a sentence i.e. "Cut the chain".  I also went through the other entries, also from last year, and was pretty certain I'd place. Could ascribing it as "NoDerivs" possibly have anything to do with how the sponsor judged it?  I just don't want someone using their modified idea for an NGO without considering consulting me, I am only partially employed and am looking for that kind of employment, even being consulted without pay would be a CV boost at this point.  I could care less how many people make it for themselves or other groups in their backyards, as long as they aren't selling the idea or trying to one-up me.  Perhaps I should consider a different license attribute and just write in plain text what I mean by it? How does everyone else network to get people to vote for their entries? When your instructable is complicated, how do you shorten it enough to make sure people of all levels can understand?   Do a few cellphone pictures in an instructable of many photos ruin it (I don't always have a camera on hand and until super recently I didn't have an SLR as mine was stolen in Peru - I had to borrow one for some of my photos)?  Not as many people seem to like my most complicated instructable, so I wonder if length or complexity factors in... Do you think length factors into contest decisions?  Because my next project is also long, as unique ideas often are.  And I don't want to skip describing details and just say "put the capacitor in" or "build a rectifier circuit" when, since I started building circuits this Fall (partially thanks to instructables), I would have wanted to know details like to bend legs of a capacitor if I was following an instructable, and I was super confused by an instructable (a featured one at that) that said simply "build a rectifier circuit".   Sigh, I guess I am just bitter that I won't get one of those awesome tshirts. should I post the next idea on instructables once it is completed or not?  Or are ideas like that generally not appreciated in this community?  (hint: it is similar to the light up swing powered by a bicycle dynamo I posted, but implements another piece of playground equipment instead).  Perhaps I should just keep them to myself until I've built them beyond working prototypes?   Sorry for all the questions and being a Debbie Downer, I am just reflecting on what could have factored into my entry not having been selected as one of the top 25.  I was pretty sure it was at least in the top 10 or so.  If I am going to improve on future projects, I want to know what I should consider focusing on, and if complex projects don't really belong here (or if others have good ideas on how to shorten them).  Thanks all.

Monthly Contests

I would like to see monthly or bi-monthly contests with no specific topic. Just a contest for the best instructable in that time period. It's a bummer to publish an instructable but not be eligible for any contests simply due to timing.

Stuff on a Stick Contest is not listed nor does the banner ad show up in the rotation on the home page.  It is still an active contest.  Maybe stick a "more" button or link to all contests.

Can't enter in contest I accidentely left

Hi, I had joint the First Time Author Contest, and I got accepted. Then, as the contest wasn't showing on my instructable page, I left the contest to enter again. When I try to enter again, it tells me "pending approval" but I don't receive any email confirmation, and when I click on contest again, it says "add" again, and not "pending approval". Is this normal? Can't we enter again after leaving a contest? Thanks

Contests

Do you think there is going to be a Halloween contest this year? I hope so b/c I'm working on something Halloweeny. Plus it seems like during the Halloween cotest someone always complains/whines about their project not being a finalist or someone pirating their idea, which can be entertaining. I had some other contest ideas: Most Likely to be Sold in an Infomercial. (Stuff that is in the tradition of Ron Popiel) Practicallity Contest. (Stuff that may not be sexy, but is very useful) Dark Ages Contest. (The projects couldn't contain LEDs or electronics.) Vacuum Contest (Ibles for the vacuum cleaner or that use a vacuum. You'd want them to suck. :) Just a couple of thoughts.
