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)?

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

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.)

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)?
