Calling all Lords and Ladies! We've been inspired by a large number of Makers in the Maker Studio who incorporate a bit of magic, fantasy and the renaissance in their creations. We're talking wizards, gnomes, magic wands, knights, royalty, dragons and fairies - all the elements of a great fantasy novel or movie. (plus you wouldn't believe how many magical emojis we'll have to choose from during this challenge... 🔮 🪄 🏰 )
To participate in ye olde Fantasty Makers Challenge, put your Dremel tools to the test and create something that falls into the "fantasy" category. Don't forget to read the submission guidelines below before getting started. Huzzah!
In order to qualify for a prize in the challenge, here's what you have to do:
Between July 16 and midnight CST on August 16, submit your project using the challenge intake form
Include the finished and in-progress photos of your project
Tell us about your process and how you made your fantastical creation
Each submission must meet the following requirements:
Your project must be something that falls into the "medieval / fantasy" theme. Wizards, fairies, knights, castles, crowns, dragons etc. If you can find it in a fairy tale, it's probably eligible in this challenge. (But if you're not sure, feel free to check with one of our moderators first!)
Use at least one (1) Dremel tool in the creation of your project
Submit at least one (1) "before" / "before getting started" photo of your project (your pile of materials before getting started would be a good one)
Submit at least one (1) in-progress photo of your project (you might need to enlist an assistant)
Submit at least one (1) final photo of your project.
Since we still haven't figured out how to apparate from house to house yet, we use these photos as a way to verify that you have completed your project yourself within the Challenge period.
Feel free to submit as many projects as you'd like but make sure to create a separate submission per project.
Once all the projects are submitted, all members of the Dremel Maker Studio will have the opportunity to review the submissions and vote for their favorite projects. The due date for submissions is August 16th at midnight CST. Our team will review all of the submissions to make sure they meet the requirements, and then voting will run from August 20th to September 6th.
What's in it for you? There are three grand prizes available in this Challenge:
1st Place: A prize pack of Dremel tools worth $250
2nd Place: A prize pack of Dremel tools worth $150
3rd Place:A prize pack of Dremel tools worth $100
Plus, everyone who casts a vote during the voting phase will be entered in a draw for HSGP-01 Dremel Glue Pen
