What does Sponsor's Instructables staff mean? Answered


I was looking at the rules for the tech contest and saw this, what does it mean ? Does it mean that the finalist will be picked by the sponsor? """""Two Judges from Sponsor's Instructables staff will choose 18 finalists from the pool of all eligible entries based on their preliminary assessment of whether the entries meet the Criteria"""

The finaliSTS, plural. You'd have to read the rest of the rules to find who will decide the winner. Seems fair enough to me that that should be the sponsor.

If I provide a lot prices or the money for it, it seems only fair that I do the judging.
I guess it basically means someone here from Instructables does a pre-selection and the sponsor has the final say.
After all, you might think project A is the best while the sponsor thinks project C is better as it used his products or was sticking closer to the rules ;)

Yes but does the sponsor pick what they want, before people from here pick the finalists?

Well I guess we will find out when the contest is over :( If it's hobbyking doing the picking it will be apparent.
