Can the same instructable win in different contests? Answered

I was wondering if the same instructable entered in three different (qualifying) contests can win grand prizes in all three or at least two of them? Does it have such a chance? Or would the judges think something like "this one has already won once in another contest so maybe that is enough for that author and we should give a chance to someone else" ? Will you have fewer chances to win if this very same tutorial has just won in another contest?

It does have a chance and as Yonatan24 says it has happened before. I believe that each contest is judged on its merits so previous wins won't reduce your chances of winning again. Each contest is judged not only by I'bles users and staff but also by contest sponsors, so I guess there is pretty much a clean slate each time.

As the criteria for each contest can differ greatly it certainly makes it difficult for a clean sweep of grand prizes, but it just takes a great I'ble at just the right time to meet all of the criteria of the different contests. The most recent example of a multiple winner I can think of is this Touchscreen Coffee Table... that won grand prize in the Gaming and Raspberry Pi contest and first prize in the Full Spectrum Laser.

It has happened before... Depends on the judges, I guess!
