We've got a fantastic contest to introduce to you with great prizes up for grabs.
NeedInstructions.com is looking for you to "Create Your Own Instruction, Manual, or How To On NeedInstructions.com." You can also upload your own instructional video on NeedInstructions.com.

After it's hosted you will use the embed code to place it onto NeedInstructions.com, "Add a Embedded Video URL Instruction, Manual or How To On NeedInstructions.com."
They are looking for instructions that are creative, well written, and well recorded. NeedInstructions.com will be judging your instruction entries by instruction content, step images, video quality, and the overall instruction.

So what are you waiting for, go ahead and start creating those instructions! All instructions must have a create date of March 01, 2009 or higher to be counted for this contest!
