The 7th annual Epilog Contest is finally here! Together with Epilog Laser and 3Doodler, we’re giving away a 30-watt Zing 16 Laser system, and 20 3Doodler 2.0 pens.

To enter, simply post a project that proves you’re a creative whiz, tell us what you'd do with the laser cutter if you won, and prove that you'd put it to good use.

Instructables will be judged on presentation, attention to detail (written or aesthetic), and quality of photographs. Check out the previous Epilog winners to get inspired, and see what it takes to win a Zing 16 Laser!

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