Paracord can be very useful stuff, especially in a survival situation. It can be woven into a strong band, gutted for the nylon strands inside, or even just used to tie things together. We want to see your great paracord ideas, so we're having a Paracord Contest!

To enter you must publish a new Instructable that involves paracord. It doesn't need to be the only thing in your Instructable, or even the biggest part, but the more interesting your use of paracord the better.

So, make a fantastic project and win a laser-etched Leatherman Juice along with an Instructables Prize Pack that includes a one-year Pro membership, and a Robot t-shirt!

This is a speed contest and will only be open for 2.5 weeks, so get to it! We can't wait to see what you'll make!
  First Prize
Leatherman Juice S2

Multiple entries are accepted, although each entrant can only win one prize. International entries are accepted.

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 Mar 24, 2010 and Apr 11, 2010 (11:59pm PT).


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