October 21, 2015 may seem like an ordinary day, but it’s actually one of the most anticipated days in movie history! On this day, Marty and Doc Brown braved time together to visit the future, and we’re running a Back to the Future Contest to celebrate! 

Join us in commemorating this epic trilogy by sharing your costumes, movie props, and any other project inspired by the movie.

Prizes are provided by In1Case and the take includes an Apple Watch Sport, 3Doodler pen, In1 Multi Tool Case, and more.  The future is now, what will you make of it?

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 Oct 5, 2015 and Nov 16, 2015 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Back to the Future 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.
