Autodesk Employee Halloween Contest Answered

WINNERS ANNOUNCED: https://www.instructables.com/id/Winners-Autodesk-Employee-Halloween-Contest/

Want to win a Macbook Air for sharing a Halloween project?

Instructables, the DIY project-sharing robotic arm of the Autodesk Consumer Group, would like to invite all Autodesk employees to participate in a special internal Halloween Contest. We run contests all the time, and we wanted to make one especially for us (since Autodesk employees are ineligible for our public contests.)

All Autodesk employees are eligible to win something awesome just for sharing photos or a full step by step Instructable of your Halloween costumes, decorations, or food. The only requirement for entry? You must have done it yourself, and it must be Halloween-related.

To enter: simply create an Instructable, then send the Instructable link to halloween@instructables.com. Neutral third parties will judge, and may the best Autodesk project win!

Check out what has been entered so far!

Your Instructable must be published between October 11 - November 7 to be eligible for the contest.

Prizes Include:
Grand Prize (1 winner): 11" 64GB Macbook Air
First Prize (3 winners): the new iPad
Second Prize (6 winners): Dremel Rotary Tool Kit

What is the criteria on how the entries will be judged?

1. Be an employee of Autodesk.

2. Make the best project. "Best" will probably be an entirely subjective, but impartial, judgement by a group of non-Autodesk-employees.

Herp a derp. :D

Ugh, off the subject entirely, but this "new and improved" comment threading is such a pain. I don't understand why only one level of reply is recognized.

There's a whole forum topic on this subject. Basically, it avoids the problem of long skinny boxes which fall off the right-hand edge.

Ah, my apologies. I missed that.

Something like Reddit's indentation would be nicer IMHO; I've not paid enough attention to know what they do but I can count on one hand the number of times I've had to scroll way to the right to see replies (and I think they just keep a-scrolling if necessary). I guess until they change it again, I'm going to adopt The Way of the Ancients and quote the comment I'm replying to. :)

That makes sense. And the hat is because of the hautumn, surely.

Since most normal contests allow for multiple entries, I'd guess "yes, but you can only win one prize".
