Create a new Step By Step, Photo, or Video Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the right-hand column. Instructables must be published between Jun 3, 2019 and Jul 29, 2019 (11:59pm PT) to be eligible.


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Backyard Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


Instructables members can vote for an entry during the contest plus 3 days after the contest closes.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be announced here on the contest page. All entrants will be notified when this happens.

Backyard Contest




days left



Whether you make a backyard game, build a tree house, set up your garden space, or install outdoor lighting . . . whatever you create that's related to using the space outside your home, it's eligible for this contest and we want to see how you did it!

This contest is open to all home-based outdoor-focused projects; a backyard is not technically required. Get out and make something amazing!
