The Remix Contest is about finding inspiration in an existing project, and making your own version that pushes the idea to the next level.

You might be inspired by a project here on Instructables, from YouTube, or anywhere else. All types of projects are welcome! 

In order to be eligible authors must include a link in their introduction to the source project(s) that inspired their new creation.

There are a lot of great prizes on the line, including a Macbook Air, 3D printers, and Dremel tools. Find an inspiring project, and show us how to take the idea above and beyond! 

The Remix Contest is closed.

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 4, 2019 and Apr 1, 2019 (11:59pm PT).


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