The Epilog Contest is here for its 10th year! It's your chance to make and show off the best of the best of the best for a chance to win a 30-watt Zing 16 from Epilog! We want to see your epic builds, mind-boggling designs, and monumental efforts!

Make anything you want, just make sure it stands out and has top-notch documentation to go along with your build. What skills will you teach the Instructables community alongside your project?

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 Jan 7, 2019 and Apr 1, 2019 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Epilog X 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.
