Now that registration is complete, the Annual Bitbuilt Summer Contest is officially open! This is the Third Annual Summer Contest, and every year the entries get better and better, as the Contestants really bring their all. So far GMan has been the winner the past 2 Contests. Do you have what it takes to dethrone him?
Most people spend their summers having fun in the sun, but skin cancer is a serious issue. To remedy this, BitBuilt is launching the 2018 Summer Building Contest, promoting soldering burns over sunburns! Seriously though, this contest is for everyone, noobs and veterans alike, to perform the coolest hardware mod they can. The contest is officially open for registration, so head on over to the forums and get registered! Registration is a simple account upgrade that can be purchased for a fee of $2 by following this guide. Registration closes on May 11th, so be sure to get registered as soon as possible.
The winners will be chosen through voting by the community on three different categories: case design/aesthetics, cleanliness of internals, and build features. The deadline to complete your build is also later than last year, this time in mid-august, so everyone will have more time to complete their builds. More information on deadlines and the rest of the contest can be found here.
Good luck to everyone! We hope to see you in the contest too.
The projects have been made, the votes tallied, and the Results are in! It was another successful contest this year with many cool projects, portables, and designs; however only three winners could be chosen. Instead of just voting for your favorite portable as last year, the entries were judged from three categories stemming from Case Design/A E S T H E T I C, the cleanliness of the internals, and included Features and overall Functionality. The results are as follows:
The Bitbuilt Summer Contest returns for another year for more mods, projects, friendly competition, and prizes! From March 18 to July 28th, the contest will be open to any and all Bitbuilt users and projects, either at a $2 entry fee or FREE Admission if you have purchased something from the BB Store. Grab your soldering irons and give it your best for this years epic build-off!
