VIRTUAL MAKER CONTEST

Calling all creative types! Though COVID-19 has changed how a lot of things look, it hasn't changed our collective need to create. In the spirit of creative work of all kinds, the Castlewood Makerspace and Arapahoe Libraries is hosting a Virtual Maker Contest!

WHAT IS A MAKER CONTEST?

The Virtual Maker Contest is an online contest hosted by the Castlewood Makerspace staff. Any interested makers can submit an entry for a chance to win a category-related prize and have their work hosted with other makers in a fun photo gallery on this page.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anyone who likes to create! If you wants to submit your work for display and are excited by the chance to win a prize, please join us. Participants must be 18 years or older and Colorado residents.

WHAT CAN I CREATE?

You can create almost anything—your work only needs to fit into one of the Makerspace-related categories: paper, plastic/foam, textile, woodworking/carving and electronics. See below for examples.

HOW CAN I ENTER?

The Virtual Maker Contest is closed. See the winners below!
