We’re proud to announce the Mind For Design Contest, brought to you by HP Sprout!

Technology continues to influence how we design and how quickly we iterate, and this contest is all about that ever-evolving creative process. Whether you use 3D modeling software to create digital prototypes, manipulate images with photo editing software, or create scalable images with vector art programs, if your designs are made digitally, you’re eligible to enter!

Five lucky winners will take home an HP Sprout, the all-in-one computer with 2D and 3D scanning software built right into the all-touch user surface. Other prizes include an HP Stream 11, Dremel 3D Printer, and Polaroid Cubes. Entries will be judged based on clarity, ingenuity, creativity, quality of presentation, and execution of the Instructable. Start thinking digitally and share your ideas for a chance to win!

The Mind for Design is closed.

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 Apr 27, 2015 and May 25, 2015 (11:59pm PT).


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