PCBway organized the 2nd PCB DESIGN CONTEST

So excited to announce that PCBWay 2nd PCB Design Contest is starting. Through the first contest, we met many excellent makers and they also showed us lots of brilliant PCB designs. We sincerely welcome new competitors and former competitors to our 2nd PCB Design Contest. It’s organized by PCBWay, SpainLabs, YoREPARO, and ATMakers.

7 Tips On How To Make Your PCB Entries Stand Out From PCBWay 2nd PCB Design Contest

PCBWay 2nd Edition of PCB Design Competition – The Pride Of A Maker 13

1. Choose the appropriate color of the solder mask and silkscreen for your PCB project.

2. In addition to the PCB images generated by our website, you can upload more photos of the project.

3. The more detailed project’s description is, the better judges and other makers understand it. FYI, it is a good idea to insert a video, currently, our platform supports “YouTube” and “Vimeo”.

4. Open for Gerber download and BOM download.

5. Frequently share your entries to your social media and some open source forums, allowing more people to vote your entry, like it, download the Gerber file and also place orders for your work.

6. After uploading your entry, please constantly pay attention to its page. There will be other makers asking questions about your PCB project, and timely responses and multiple interactions will be additional points.

7. We also encourage you to upload more entries about Assistive Technology (AT) by supporting a special award, “AT Maker Prize”. Hope that more makers could contribute to the promotion of Assistive Technology.
