What mischief are you planning for April Fools' Day? Here at Instructables headquarters, no one is safe come April 1. We can’t get enough of pranks and practical jokes, so we’re asking you to share your sneaky, smart, silly, or even sweet pranks in the Prank Challenge.

The winner will take home a shiny new GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition Starter Bundle — perfect for documenting even more crazy antics, projects, and pranks. We will judge the entries for clarity, ingenuity, creativity, quality of presentation, and execution of the Instructable. Good luck, and watch your back!

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 23, 2015 and Apr 13, 2015 (11:59pm PT).


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