All makers have some kind of instinctive affinity for duct tape and cardboard. When the two are combined, the possibilities are endless. They are the ingredients for many small repairs, big builds, and beyond. Here at Instructables, we have been really amazed at the previous community outpour of cool things that have been fabricated with duct tape and cardboard.
With that sentiment, we present the Duct Tape and Cardboard Contest! To enter the contest, post an Instructable that features duct tape or cardboard, or both. It can be an epic build, a tiny repair, a stylish outfit, knight's armor - whatever you can dream up! Make something awesome for a chance to win a Dewalt Jigsaw, precision cutting tools, Makedo kits, and more!
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, and Denmark. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, March 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.
Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Feb 4, 2013 and Mar 11, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Cardboard and Duct Tape 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.
