betacup contest - slideshows / video entry Answered

Per the contest rules it says "The rules are simple: submit a new Instructable that reuses a paper coffee cup in some way". This is clear enough for me, however just to make sure are slide shows and videos exempt?


I think that a full I'ble is required, but that probably won't stop you from entering a sldeshow / video.


I'm asking because I feel the project I wish to share is too simple to publish as a full instructable, an example of another project that would benefit from using the slideshow format in this contest would be the lens hood project.

At first,I made a slideshow, but wasn't able to submit it to the contest (there simply wasn't an option on the screen). Then I turned it into a very lean Instructable.

Based on your experience I don't think slide shows are eligible to be entered into this contest. It seems the choices are to make a lean instructable with more pictures than words, or submit a coffee cup slide show not affiliated with the contest it was made for into the general projects.

A thought just occurred to me: maybe this was the contest intent all along, to push our creativity and see what we come up with?

We'll see if staff answer and provide any guidance.
