The Makerlympics Contest has started! Answered

Hi everyone! In honor of the 2014 Quadrennial International Winter Sporting Competition being held in Russia, we're holding a competition of our own.

This is going to be a totally different kind of contest from the sort we normally run - the winners will be entirely up to the staff here at HQ and we're even going to give away medals. The Makerlympics Contest is open to any type of project - we want to see the best of the best! We're looking for fantastic photos, thorough documentation and new and original content.

We'll have six Gold Medal winners - one for each category: Food, Living, Outdoors, Play, Tech, and Workshop! Twelve Silver Medal winners will be named as well - two from each category.

Get documenting for your chance to win a Samsung 16.2MP MP Smart Wi-fi Digital Camera! The Makerlympics Contest closes on February 24th, 2014.

P.S. - Stoked for the games? Make your own Olympic torch and share it with us here using the "I Made It!" button. We want to see torches carried all over the world!

P.P.S - We just added Maker Olympic Medals to the prizes, so you can feel like a real champ!


Ohh, it is so short and I have so much to do. Oh well, maybe I can make something quick or finish something else up.

So excited! this is going to be a fun contest :)

Er... why have you got your eyes closed?

Because I'm awkward in front of a camera. shhhhhhh
