Coming Soon: Arduino Contest Answered

For all you Arduino fans out there, we're going to have an Arduino contest coming to the site soon. I can't give out any dates or prizes yet, but the only requirement for the contest will be that it involves Arduino in some way. What you do with the Arduino is completely up to you. More information soon.

How about extending this to ANY microcontroller based project to extend the appeal and range of entries (or is the main prize sponsor an Arduino supplier)?

That would be nice...

Count me in please!

Woah, I just got an arduino not too long ago and was like, "I wish they made a contest on instructables for it to give me some motivation to make something" I didn't think it would happen though. Thank you instructables

two words..... "Bring It"!!!!!!!

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When is more information going to be released?

There should be some awesome entries in this one! I've got a few different Arduinos kicking around...

arduino >.< time to put away the avr programmer and bring out the boarduino :P

on a related note, is there a halloween contest this year?

I so hope there will be!!! Because I have a great plan for it!

Yeah, I'm looking forward to this one! The gears are turning!

Do our projects have to use a genuine Arduino, or can we use our own AVR microcontroller with the Arduino bootloader?

Hi Ethanal, the description above has been edited to be more open. Details to come later, but you don't have to use an Arduino branded device. (Full disclosure: I'm a sponsor of this contest.)

Zeroth's law would come in about.......... now.

It is on, in many ways like Donkey Kong. Are the prospective prizes ones that might incur any problems with overseas shipping (if you can tell at the moment)?

This will pull in some epic entries, I just know it!

I don't know how to use an arduino but this contest will be great.

This sounds super!
