Instructables, a web-based documentation platform for users to share their creations, is offering a Metal Challenge contest for metalworkers to enter and showcase their handmade projects (including your steel sculptures, of course!).
There are three ways to enter the contest: You can upload and share one or more photos of your project; share “how-to” photos with step-by-step text instructions; or share an informative video about your project that you already have uploaded to websites, such as YouTube.
Entries will be rated by a panel of judges and the winners will receive one of nine prizes, including a Hobart MIG welding package. Multiple entries will be accepted, but each entrant can win only one prize.
You can submit your project entries and find more information at www.instructables.com/contest/metal/. The deadline for entry submissions is May 7, 2012.
And speaking of steel contests, did you know that AISC has a steel sculpture competition? Last year AISC introduced its SteelDay Sculpture Competition for full and associate members to create and display their own innovative steel sculptures. Seven were entered in the contest and posted to SteelDay’s Facebook page, where fans voted on their favorites. (You can also view all seven projects in our previous news post.) Because of the impressiveness of each sculpture and the great show of talent, all seven entries will be on display at the 2012 NASCC: The Steel Conference next week in Dallas, where the winner will be determined by conference attendees. (The sculptures will be on display near the registration area; be sure to stop by and vote!)
