How do Instructables challenges get started / work? Answered

Can anyone start one, if they approach the admins? Do you need some kind of sponsorship arrangement?

Once my solar tracker is up and running I want to get something going on finding the absolute best way to convert heat to electricity, in a home makeable sense. It's something which is greatly needed and definitely lacking. I thought an Instructables challenge would be a good way forward..

Anybody can start an unofficial contest or challenge in the forums - it's nice if you have something to offer as a prize, such as patches.

You can also start a contest by writing an Instructable, but that is usually only done if the prizes you have available have cash value, such as a pro voucher or actual items to send to winners.
