They do say new project. I like the fact that Miller has the contests. But...Miller will state what the requirements are for the projects to be entered but accept projects that do not fit the criteria. I guess whoever accepts projects for Miller doesn't read the rules. Example.........Last year they had three catagories...
Projects that could be made in a day.......projects that could be made within a week........and projects that may take up to three months. I know this because I emailed Miller with questions and this was the reply. They allowed projects that the entrants even stated that their project had taken a few years to complete. I'm sure many had projects that took over 3 months but didn't enter them because of the time to build didn't fit the requirements. So........bottom line is, enter anything you want, pay no attention to the rules and you may have a shot. I'm entering a full size 747 all tig welded.
