Got a Great Project? We Want to Hear From You!

1 min read

IEEE Spectrum and Make magazines will be joining forces again in the future to call attention to the coolest and cleverest do-it-yourself projects. So if you’ve conceived and built something that you’d like to share with the combined readerships of Spectrum and Make --more than a million people--let us know about it. To enter, send a brief description of your project and include an estimate of how much it cost to build. Throw in a photo, a parts list, and a schematic. E-mail them to , or snail mail them to: Spectrum / MakeDIY Contest, 3 Park Ave., 17th Floor, New York, NY 10016-5997, U.S.A. Watch this space for our announcements of dates and deadlines.

If you win, you’ll receive full coverage of your project in the print and/or online editions of both Spectrum and Make , as well as airfare and accommodations to attend the next Maker Faire. That’s Make magazine’s jamboree for do-it-yourselfers, where you will describe and demonstrate your project.
