The Fort Contest is starting on Monday, 7/22 Answered

I'm so excited to announce our first ever Fort Contest! I don't know about you guys, but I am excellent at building forts. I'm better at the blanket kind than the sticks-and-plywood kind, but I love building both! Even though I'm nearly 30, I'll still build one if given a chance.

And this is that chance! Time to break out your best blankets or building-with-scrap-wood-skills and make a FANTASTIC FORT!

Plus, mikeasaurus has chosen some amazing prizes - we've got a grand prize for both indoor and outdoor forts and enough prizes for five runner up winners. I love these prize packs and I would like to have one of each. :D

Check out the official contest page for more information!

Remember that the contest is open 7/22 - 9/16 so instructables posted before or after are not eligible.

I'll be moderating entries from inside my desk-fort while this contest is active.

If you raise the Canadian flag over it, does it become a place to seek asylum...wait, the whole place already is...

Thank you so much Jessy.
This sounds so much fun. I was taking fort as in king's fort but this different. Is it possible to point out some instructables as examples.

I actually just decided to make a guide! We're really looking for all types - lean tos in the woods, treehouses, cardboard forts, blanket forts, pillow forts, snow forts - any and all! They can be both permanent and collapsible. :D
