Whether you’re a first-time creator thinking about launching your first project, or a seasoned creator looking for a new challenge, Kickstarter’s project prompts are designed to encourage all kinds of creators to get involved and bring their creative idea to life. Prompts that we've run in the past include “Make 100”, “Zine Quest”, and “Long Story Short”.
A prompt will typically run for the entirety of a calendar month, and we’ll start promoting it on our site beforehand, to give creators time to prepare. As long as a project launches within that month, and fits the criteria of the prompt, it’ll be included.
If you haven’t started your new project yet, the best way to make sure that it’s included is to head to the landing page for the specific prompt and click the link to create a project draft. Alongside the link to start creating your project, the prompt’s landing page will have more information on how to take part, and what the criteria for being included is.
If you have an existing project draft that you’ve decided to launch as part of a prompt that’s currently running, make sure to check that it meets the criteria before reaching out to our Support team who’ll be happy to help with including it.
