I dont know if there is an official reason, or if no one has just entered yet Me, I was going to try to come up with something but the stuff is a little pricey (even from other sources) and I have no desire to tronify anything around my house. So from my point of view, what? am I going to spend a lot of time and effort to create something I really dont want, for a chance to win more materials I dont want? Yea its wire, It lights up, you can make stuff look like tron and not much else, hopefully someone will prove me wrong

On the other hand, you can (probably) easily win first place, and the Instructables prize pack. You can keep the prize pack, and sell the EL wire on eBay so you can make money off of it. And that money can go twords material you want for more instructables.
see a whole bunch a people just entered after me

Since the contest does involve a product not commonly found around the house, most people will have to order it and that takes time. Maybe they will extend the deadline like a few other contests in the past when not enough of a competitive crowd showed up in time. You should see more entries pop up last minute at the end of the contest though.
There is at least one UK ibler with both an idea and materials. I shall go poke him.

He's probably finished it by now, being the hero that he is.

Well tell him to put his underpants back inside his trousers and get on with the documentation!

No one has a good idea, no EL wire and no money to buy it, or not enough time to make something. Instructables members: I am dissapointed.
