The Remix Contest is back for its third installment! We've all heard the saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and this contest celebrates that sentiment. Find a project (or multiple projects!) that you admire and recreate, reinvent, or reimagine it. Share a link to the project that you're remixing in the intro!

Prizes for this contest include a Canon T5 bundle kit, Kindle Fire HD 8, Boombot Rex wireless speaker, and more. This contest is open to any project as long as it was inspired by another project and you attribute the original author in your Instructable. For a look at how past winners earned their awards, check out the 2015 and 2014 contests! 

Did you know ALL our online classes are now free? Sign up for a class related to your project for extra help and guidance as you make!

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 Dec 19, 2016 and Feb 6, 2017 (11:59pm PT).


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