About

PCBWay Design Contest has always encouraged participants to engage in open-source and innovative projects, aiming to inspire more individuals to become a member of the electronics community.

Looking back at last year's entries, we witnessed numerous meaningful and creative projects, including environmentally friendly initiatives and innovations in the field of IoT, which left a lasting impression.

In this brand new year, we decide to add a new element: the theme of mechanical design to this contest. We firmly believe that the clever fusion of electronic and mechanical design will give rise to even more impactful creations.

Looking forward to your participation.

Rules
one Each entry must be original and uploaded within the specified time, otherwise it will be considered disqualified.
two The intellectual property rights of the participating projects belong to the entrants. Two themes are of this contest are opened: Electronics Design and Mechanical Design. Each entrant is allowed to upload multiple projects.
lf your project includes both electronic and mechanical design (or 3D design), then you can choose either theme to enter the contest,
three Each entry must include original design file: electronic project should include its PCB design and mechanical design should include its 3D design. We highly recommend all files related to the project ( such as Gerber, Bom, Schematic, Layout, Code, 3D Design Files, etc) could be shared so that our judges could better understand your idea.
four How to participate? Click the "Participate Now" button on the contest page. Or create a new project in PCBWay community, click the "Submit project to…" button on the page and select the corresponding theme.
