Prize suggestions and feedback needed! What would YOU like to win?

Hi everyone!

Here at HQ we're always planning contests, but sometimes we run out of prize ideas. :D

I would love to hear any and all suggestions for products you guys would like to win!

I'd also love to hear feedback about prizes we've offered this year - what did you like? What didn't you like? Do you prefer getting a shiny new electronic toy or a prize pack more suited to the theme of the contest?

Have a suggestion for a contest theme? Check out this topic!

Instapot, Air fryer, Pawley Studios GC, Button maker,

A button maker! I will see if I can figure out where we can give those away.

We've given away some Instapots in the past, but an air fryer might be nice to add to the mix.

I know nothing about Instapot, just it seems to be a hot item right now. Ditto for Air Fryers, but after burning the crap out of my hand attempting egg rolls I can see the appeal :)

Dehydrators are also cool

Unicorn SPiT, Plasti-Dip, kilns,

What about mixing the prizes in the contests? I mean, the prizes are currently really similar to the topic of the contest, and for example in an "Arduino contest" there are Arduino to win, in "Raspberry Pi contest" there are Raspberry Pi to win... But the winners will probably already have such things because this is the topic of the contests!

So the idea would be to mix the prizes, for example:

- The winners in "Arduino contest" win a Raspberry Pi

- The winners in "Woodworking contest" win 3D printers

- The winners in "Metal contest" win woodworking tools

- And so on...

Yeah I found that that 3D printing contest prizes were kind of funny because most winners already had a printer. If I remember correctly, one even built a printer. It would be cool to have prizes that allowed you to explore new topics. But at the same time, those who are passionate about a certain contest topic may want something related.

Maybe a Scratch or Game making contest???

Yeah I really enjoy Scratch too, it was the first language I ever used. However, it may be a bit hard to elaborate on a project enough to make an instructable. Unless you mean tutorials on basic game design such as adding gravity or making multiplayer.

Being a videographer, I really liked the Photography contest awards (gorillapods and camera bags).

This year, I'd like to see more contests, that have many great prizes, instead of only a single huge prize, because quite often all of the top 5s were excellent, but sadly, only one of them was awarded with an excellent prize, the others got just a T shirt.

I like the PVC contest's prizes of Formufit gift cards. I had actually
never heard of them before—the only online PVC pipe store I knew of was
FlexPVC. I was too slow to enter this year, but I'll probably enter it
next time.
