2015 Mystery Build Art Competition
Create a work of art using ONLY the materials provided in a Mystery Build kit! What's inside? We can't tell you, but you can expect to find some common art materials like wood, clay, cloth, metal, and plenty of surprises. All 2015 kits contain the same materials, so each creator faces the same challenges and limitations. It's an engaging project that combines the exploration of art, the challenge of a puzzle, and the fun of a game. Upload photos or video of what you make to compete for big cash prizes! Mystery Build has awarded over $50,000 to creative people like you. The yearly prize money pool grows with each new participant. The more people who play, the more you can win!
