Deleting a instructable entered in a contest

Im having trouble deleting a old instructable entered in a old contest, the ERROR 401 pops up every time I try to delete it. Any ideas on what I can do?

If a project is entered in a contest it`s not straightforward to delete, please email with a link to your project and which contest it was in.

is it possible to remove it from the contest then delete it?
I think you'll both have to email staff at
