We've partnered with Gorilla Tape and Gorilla Glue to bring you the Gorilla Glue Cardboard Contest!

Simply create something wonderful using any type of cardboard: corrugated or flat, boxes or tubes. You can use any type of adhesive (from Gorilla or not), fasteners, components, and decorations, but your project must include cardboard as a major element.

Gorilla glues, tapes, and epoxy are made for the toughest jobs on planet Earth! Gorilla products work when others fail, the first time, every time, helping people around the world build, create, and repair everything in their life. The Gorilla motto: build it, don't buy it, and repair it, don't replace it!

So show us what cool toys, furniture, tools, decorations, or other amazing things you can make from cardboard. Whether it's fun or functional, we can't wait to see what you'll make!
International entries are OK.
Multiple entries to the contest are allowed, but each entrant can only win one prize.
