In celebration of Harry Potter’s birthday, we present the Wizarding Contest. Any project related to the world of wizarding is eligible, so seek out a lightning bolt of inspiration and get started!

It may take more than a wave of your wand to put together your entry, but we’ve got some fantastic prizes to make it worth your while, including Amazon Fire tablets, wand remote controls, and more.

We can’t wait to see the wondrous creation you come up with. Good luck!

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 Jun 20, 2016 and Aug 15, 2016 (11:59pm PT).


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


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
