Instructables, the DIY project-sharing robotic arm of the Autodesk Consumer Group, would like to invite all Autodesk employees to participate in a special internal Halloween Contest. We run contests all the time, and we wanted to make one especially for us (since Autodesk employees are ineligible for our public contests.)

All Autodesk employees are eligible to win something awesome just for sharing photos or a full step by step Instructable of your Halloween costumes, decorations, or food. The only requirement for entry? You must have done it yourself, and it must be Halloween-related.

To enter: simply create an Instructable, then send the Instructable link to halloween@instructables.com. Neutral third parties will judge, and may the best Autodesk project win!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), November 8, 2012. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, November 11, 2013.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Nov 8, 2012 and Nov 11, 2013 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select 2013 Autodesk Halloween Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
