Are you into antiques, old technology, history, or decades prior to this one? You are in luck, as we are running a Vintage Contest. Victorian Era. The 1990s. The stone age. Show us your vintage projects in the style of a prior epoch to win cool stuff from Crosley Radio.

Enter any vintage or retro project to win a Crosley Traveler Turntable, a pair of Crosley Amplitone Headphones worthy of the B-52s (the planes or the band), or an Instructables prize pack.

Please be sure that your entry into the contest contains original photos and text. Entries without original photos and text will be denied.

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), July 7, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, August 4, 2014.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.

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