Good news for International Authors!

If you don't live in the US, Canada-minus-Quebec, US, UK, Australia, Belgium, Canada (excluding Quebec), China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, or Switzerland, (keep an eye on THIS PAGE for updates) and have been bummed that we can't yet open contests for your country, I've got some great news for you!

We're going to give you gifts!  Here's how it works.

Editors' Pick gifts
Our editors will scan the site for particularly excellent Instructables from international authors.  This way we can tell you we think your project is awesome, even if you don't get a ton of pageviews within the first month.  The number of editors' picks gifts will vary every month, depending on the number of amazing international projects we see.

The legal reasoning: while there are all sorts of stringent and varied laws governing contests around the world, the lawyers say we can send you non-contest-related gifts without fear of fines and imprisonment.  Thus, while we're waiting for the lawyers to figure out the wacky legal details for each country, we're identifying the most popular projects each month and sending along a thank-you gift.  Which is a gift, NOT a prize.  Ahem.

We desperately want to be able open contests up to the entire world, and are working as fast as we can to make it happen.  (See Eric's post here.)  I realize this isn't the same as being able to enter contests, but this is our attempt to make the wait a bit more pleasant, and let you guys know you're top on our minds.

if i win the prize, will you send me a prize to Georgia,Tbilisi?
You will need a friend or relation in a valid country, willing to let you give their address for prize delivery, should you win.

how can i help my country to be elegible??
Please help me out.
I do not understand it correctly.
I live in Brazil and I'm currently participating in a important contest.
If I win the contest, I can not get the prize?


Daniel Domingos
That is unfortunately correct. Please see this long, descriptive posting which explains why it's so hard to run contests in multiple countries.
Thank you for your attention.
