For the Protected Contest, we are looking for any and all projects that protect. From a secret compartment to an remotely controlled home security system to the ultimate camping bear box, if it keeps something safe and secure, it’s fair game. How do you protect yourself from earthquakes, cyber attacks, and identity theft? Come up with a clever project and enter it for a chance to win a premium 1U App, a DSLR kit, and a drill driver set.
Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), December 8, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, February 2, 2015.

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