It’s been another year, which means it’s time for the 8th Epilog Contest! This year, Scribbler will be joining Epilog to give away some impressive prizes: a 30-watt Zing 16 Laser System and Scribbler V3 3D pens!
To be the winner of one of these awesome prizes you just need to show off something you’ve made. It sounds simple, but we are looking for excellently-documented Instructables of your most epic projects. If you’ve been saving something special to share on Instructables, now is the time to show it off!

Folks new to laser cutting can start learning the basics for free! Take our Laser Cutting Class to get started.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Epilog Contest 8. 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.
