Your favorite Pie Contest is back for the fifth year! This year we want you to bring your pie A-game. Gorgeously decorated pies, classic family pies, meat pies, fried pies - anything you love to make!

The one requirement: your pie must have a traditional pastry OR no-bake crust to qualify.

We’re also offering a Judge’s Prize this year for the most mathematical pie. Embrace π and 3.14 and get punny or serious for your chance to win a $250 Amazon gift card!

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 4, 2019 and Apr 29, 2019 (11:59pm PT).


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