if you think its good  vote for me.

my doubts about the competition
-how do i find the  how many people have voted for me?
-do your instructable have to be popular or have many views to win the competition?
-if you win the competition do you have to pay money for claiming the prize or for shipping of the prize?

i would like to receive constructive criticism from everybody about my projects as this is one of my first few instructables and please comment about my instructable  . Thank you

1. You can't.

2. Pretty much - views can translate into votes.

3. It depends. You won't have to pay shipping, but you may have to pay import duty.

what is import duty, anyway?
A tax you pay to your own government to be allowed to import an item of value.

how much does import duty cost roughly?
It depends what you are importing, from where.

See the link I gave you, then contact your own Customs and Excise office for more details.
