2nd Annual Seasonal Décor Challenge

icons04

How does this season inspire your creativity? We invite you to “CNC it” and share it in our 2nd Annual Seasonal Decor Challenge! Whatever holiday you may celebrate, share your CNC project with ShopBotters and Handibotters everywhere by helping us decorate our tree at ShopBot World Headquarters in Durham, NC.

Last year we received a lot of creative and fun entries so we look forward to seeing yours now!

We’ll be awarding some cool prizes to our favorite entries: one-year subscriptions to MAKE: magazine and fun ShopBot t-shirts!

Guidelines
Be creative and have fun! We ask that you make your item using a ShopBot or Handibot as the primary tool – feel free to use other techniques and tools as well.

We’re building a CNC’d tree at ShopBot that we’ll use to display all submissions. With this in mind, your creation should be similar in size to a tree ornament (no larger than 3”–8” on any axis) and weigh less than 1 pound. It must fit in a flat-rate box or envelope for shipping. Your final design can be 2D or 3D, as long as it fits within the rest of the parameters.

Submissions must be received by December 18th, 2015.
The tree will be fully decorated by December 24th, 2015 and a photo of the completed tree and the design submissions will be posted to the ShopBot blog and Facebook page. The tree will remain up through New Years 2015.

Please send your item (packed carefully) to:
ShopBot Tools, Inc.
Attn: Holiday Decor Challenge
3333 Industrial Drive
Durham, NC 27704

Please include your name, email, and any information you’d like to share on how you made your piece and any references to resources and materials you used to design and create the submission. Tell us your story, about your inspiration for the project. You and your design could wind up being featured on the ShopBot blog some time in the near future!

THE FINE PRINT (Please Read!)

We encourage you to upload a photo of your submission on the ShopBot Tools Facebook page, but this is not required to take part in the challenge.

By submitting your CNC holiday decor challenge entry, you are authorizing ShopBot to publish your project in upcoming publications and promotional materials, on our websites and in our other e-media, as well as to possibly display it at shows.

We welcome the use of open source or licensed projects, as long as your submission does not include any elements that are protected by copyright without the expressed written permission from the person or institution that holds the copyright.

ShopBot will not be held responsible for loss or damage due to circumstances beyond our control.
