This is a sponsored contest, and the finalist picks/results for these contests often take longer than the ones that are managed completely in-house.

Ahh, I understand. Aren't most of the contests sponsored? The prizes are usually pretty expensive...

I just asked to make sure that it wasn't some king of bug... Thanks

Nope, no bug! :)

Most contests have prizes provided by companies as a way to get a little advertising. However, some contests are "sponsored" by a company, and they will often have a say in choosing finalists and winners, which is what can take more time.

Now it seems the Tech contest has disappeared from the instructables site altogether. I wasn't able to find it anywhere on the site this morning. Maybe could this mean it's being updated to show winners?

Maybe because they have not been selected yet?
