The deadline is: January 30th 2013

The Instructables Design Competition is open to everyone who makes something that can be reasonably described as “art” or “design.” Share your 3D printed, microcontrolled, animated, photographic, sculpted, canvassy, fabricated, fashionable, jewelled, furnished, automotive, or graphic project to win a laser cutter, a laptop, and a DSLR. They’re changing how a design competition is run by opening it up to everyone. If you’ve created something for a course, a client, or just for fun, show them what you did and how you did it. Whether your goal is to inspire others, show off, or win stuff, Instructables is the platform for people to share what you make.

Bottom line: share your art or design project to win a Full Spectrum laser cutter, MacBook Pro, and a DSLR.

Instructables  also has an artist-in-residence (AIR) program that gives artists, designers and Instructables authors a chance to work with in their lab and workshops to explore, create, and document innovative projects with their tools and resources and share them with the DIY community.  Artists-in-residence are invited to come for a period of several weeks to several months, over which they will work on projects that are shared across the Autodesk Studio Communities. The primary goals of the residency program are to produce top-level inspirational content and to connect innovative and creative individuals with our unique set of tools and resources.  If you are interested in applying for an Instructables Artist in Residence position click the Program Details link here.
