Instructables has launched a new challenge under the theme of "Plastics Contest". It's hard to get through a day without interacting with plastic in one way or another. From your plastic juice bottle or take out container, to your 3D prints and clothes hangers. Everywhere you turn there is plastic, so share how you incorporate plastic into your project for a chance to win a gift card.

Eligible projects:

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. 


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


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 announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.


  • Grand Prize: One Grand Prize winner will receive: $500 Gift Card.
  • First Prize: Three First Prize winners will receive: $250 Gift Card.
  • Second Prize: Five Second Prize winners will receive: $100 Gift Card.

About Instructables:

Instructables is a place that lets you explore, document, and share your creations. The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects, connect with others, and make an impact on the world. One of these early places was a blog Zeroprestige, which was an open source hardware experiment for kitesurfing. Here they documented their hand-sewn kites, plywood boards, and other general mayhem that happens when PhDs and high winds collide. Instructables was officially spun out of Squid Labs in the summer of 2006, and has gone on to grow from a modest hundreds of projects to over one hundred thousand. The community that now calls the site home, is an amazing mix of wonder from around the world. Every day we continue to be amazed by the imagination, curiosity, and simple awesomeness of everyone who shares their creations with us on Instructables.
