Small but mighty, Raspberry Pi's and other microcontrollers make things move, tweet, beep, and more. We're inspired by all the creative things you make with microcontrollers, and in the Raspberry Pi Contest, we want you to do your best to impress us.

Prizes are provided by Dexter Industries and the winnings are sweet! We’re giving away GoPiGo2 Starter Kit, GrovePi+ kits, Arduberry, and lots more. All projects using Raspberry Pi’s and other microcontrollers are eligible. Good luck and get started!

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 Feb 1, 2016 and Mar 14, 2016 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Raspberry Pi Contest 2016. 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.
