BIG and small, we love it all!

For the Big and Small Contest, you can make something that is tiny, something that is big, make something big that is usually smaller, or make something small that is usually bigger!

Tiny treats? Yes, please! Oversized LED? Light it up and show it off! Play around with this idea and remember to think BIG...or small.

The Big and Small Contest is closed.

How It Works

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 Mar 13, 2023 and May 8, 2023 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Big and Small 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.
