Our friends and partners at MAKE have a great new contest going on right now, and if you’re a crafter with an environmentally-friendly frame of mind, you’ll want to pay close attention.
Calling all remakers, upcyclers, found object artists, and refuse miracle makers! MAKE has teamed up with Schick, and we’re launching the Project Remake Contest. We’re in search of the next great green maker. No fewer than FIVE winners will receive a MakerBot Replicator, and a Grand Prize winner will receive (in addition to a Replicator) an expenses-paid trip for two (and their winning project!) to World Maker Faire in New York City this September. So whether you de-solder legacy motherboards for their reusable components, build furniture out of reclaimed plastics, or fabricate sculpture from waste objects, go here to enter to win Project Remake!
Submissions will be open until May 14th. Projects may be functional, utilitarian, or simply beautiful. Projects will be judged against the following criteria:
- Originality & Creativity
- Media & Public Interest
Apologies to our international and fellow North American readers, but to be eligible to win, you must be a legal resident of one of the 50 US states or the District of Columbia, and 18 years of age or older at the time of entry. Complete rules can be found online here.
