Is this instructable eligible to enter in the Low & Slow BBQ Contest??

I entered this instructable in the Low & slow BBQ Contest. And after I read some more I am wondering if this is eligible to enter. Here is the link. https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-keep-pesky-flies-away-from-your-BBQ/
BTW I will give out best answer.
Thank you

Your instructable has an element which can be applied to BBQ, however after rereading the contest outline I don't believe it's in the spirit of what the contest is about. Imagine that in some bizzare alternate universe you weren't a fan of BBQ but still wanted to be outdoors, your project can just as easily be renamed for just enjoying your time outside with being bothered by insects, BBQ or otherwise. Yet, as with many projects and ideas on instructables, there is room for interpretation. As mentioned, try to enter. What's the worst that can happen?

You are right. I tried to enter and will know soon enough. I just had this idea because I have always used it during BBQs.
I highly doubt it. It clearly states that "We're looking for recipes, techniques, and even ways to build your own BBQ". I don't think that repelling flies (still a good idea), is what they're looking for.

Could be - try entering it. The worst they can do is say no.

True. I am going to wait to give you best answer. I want to see what other people say.
