Time for another Pixlr contest! If you’re not familiar with “Maker Month,” you’re smack dab in the middle of it. This weekend is Maker Faire in our neck of the woods, and everyone we work alongside — Instructables, Sketchbook, 123D, Creative Market — are spending Maker Month celebrating all the people who make neat things with our apps.
We want you to join us by showing us photos of things you make. If you have skills folding origami, knitting scarves, building birdhouses, sewing stuffed animals, making jewelry, 3D printing figurines, weaving baskets, baking cupcakes — making anything by hand — we want to see it.
You can use any Pixlr app to create your photo, but we’ve included a brand-new effects pack in Pixlr Express to make it easier. If you want to use those stickers and effects — go for it. It’s not necessary to use those effects, but we wanted to give you a simple way to slap a sticker on an entry if you want to. And, we wanted to give our users some new overlays, stickers, and borders to play with.
Tag your photos with two tags — #imadeit #pixlrcontest — on Instagram, Twitter, Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, or Facebook to be entered to win some neat prizes, including an instant camera, a quadcopter with a camera (!), a roomy SD card, and a DIY camera kit. In addition to photo-friendly prizes, we’ve got all kinds of neat stuff like Etsy gift certificates, portable speakers, and even a very cool terrarium. You’re sure to find something you like.
Who wins? Our judges will choose 7 people to win a prize of their choice from our contest site. We’ll be giving away these prizes every other day, and you can enter as many times as you like. Starting right now!
