Art Contest: Win an Instructables Book! Answered
We need art for a book and since we think that the Instructables community has plenty of talent and ideas we thought that this is the perfect opportunity for a contest. The theme of the contest is Fail Gracefully. Read on more more details.
Eric Wilhelm, our glorious CEO of infinite repute, has been invited to go and talk atOFFF in Portugal in May. As an invited speaker he also gets to supply some art for the event catalog. The theme is Fail Gracefully and the idea is to embrace mistakes in your efforts. Here's their own description:
"THIS ISN'T FLYING. THIS IS FALLING WITH STYLE"
Be afraid of perfection. Dare to do wrong. Make mistakes. Enjoy 404. Reject everything you know and jump. Try to fly.
There is no such thing as failure, but experience. No mistakes, but mistaken views. Errors? We call them acieeed(sp).
So the last sentence is a bit confusing, but you get the idea. We're giving away a copy of The Best of Instructables, Volume 1 for the best piece of art and the possibility of being published in the catalog.
