The Puppet Contest is open to Instructables that demonstrate puppet making, puppeteering and animatronic techniques. Whether you are working with sock puppets, shadow puppets, Muppet-style puppets, or animatronics, we want to see it. Anything and everything and anything puppet-related is fair game!
To enter, simply submit a puppet-related Step-by-Step, Photo, or Video instructable. We are particularly looking for well-documented instructables that show off your creativity, and talent. Participants will have the chance to win a number of cool prizes including a Canon Rebel T4I, and a custom Muppet Whatnot.
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), March 25, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, May 20, 2013.

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 25, 2013 and May 20, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Puppet 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 announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.
