I was honored to receive the Grand Prize (and mystery prize) for the Homemade Gift contest. It came with much more than I expected. In addition to the prize listed on the prizes page, it also came with a mini tripod, a full size tripod, a set of filters, lens cleaner, hand grip for the camera, extra memory card, wide angle conversion lens, telephoto conversion lens, flash, remote shutter control, screen protector, remote shutter control, and a Kreg K3 jig. I suspect that the Kreg K3 jig was the mystery prize, but maybe it was all those other items. Thanks, Instructables!

I wonder if the mystery prize is related to the objects it's paired with... Or if it's just completely random... Who knows!

I don't think this is such a great idea for the first time author's contest. I think a new member should see what the prize is, and think:

"WOW! They're giving an iPad away! WOW! A cordless tool kit! I mush publish an I'ble before the contests ends...

Not knowing what you're going to win is interesting, I guess, but knowing exactly what you could win is really motivating - at least for me.

If the mystery prizes are only the addition, that's the best!
