Who Judges the Contests ? Answered

Who judges the contests ? The Sponsors or Instructables ?
I ask because I noticed that the Little Bits contest and the Microprocessor contest both have 8 of the same finalists. Does that mean one instructable can win more than one contest at the same time ?


As far as my knowledge goes, it is judged by staff, members and sometimes the sponsors. One instructable can indeed win more than one contest, but there is a limit per instructable that doesn't allow you to enter it in more than three contests.

It's a roughly 50/50 split - half are selected through the voting process, and half are directly chosen by staff & sponsors.

They all enter the final judging process on an equal footing.
