I just submit my newspaper tray instructable today and the system says could not enter the contest. Why? I want to participate in the Epilog contest. Please answer

Sometimes a contestant barely fits the contest theme. Sometimes it clearly does not. Can an entry be disqualified for not being of the theme? Some projects seem to get votes for being cool regardless of whether they are entered in the right contest.

Hi! I'm from South Korea, which is located in Asia. I saw the teacher's contest and I wanted to enter the contest. But the contest said that only US and other few countries can enter it. But I really want to enter a contest! Can Korea also enter a contest?

There has been some question about the max number of contest entries allowed in the contest FAQ forum. There are few ibles that have won a Halloween contest and then are entered in more contests that equal more than 3 total contests. Until now, it seemed that Halloween was the exception to the rule. However, with this example, it seems that there is a bug in the contest entry system. This ible has won a contest and is entered in 4 more. https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-a-3D-model-from-pictures/

Is there a time limit for how long after you publish an instructable, it can be entered into a contest? (if not, there should be...maybe a year) Is there a limit to the number of times the same instructable can win a contest? (if not, then it should be limited to once)

Just wondering when the winners of the Craftsman $20,000 contest would be announced...
I have two entries in the Halloween contest, one for the overall display and one for a specific component. Is there a way to consolidate the two into one while the contest continues?

Hi - I noticed that my entry and one or two others are posted twice in the Make it Glow contest. I can't figure out how to un-enter one of the two duplicates of my Spinning Blinking Tardis entry. Suggestions?

Someone PM'd me about a contest to create something new with their old PC. I was going to enter but unfortunately it is only open to US residence. I thought I would pass this along since there are a lot of Instructables posted that would be eligible for this contest (provided that you are from the US). The prize is a PC. Here is the link: http://vizio.maker.good.is/

Just thought I'd start a forum topic for people to post contest ideas under one topic. I did a quick search and found questions about contest ideas and multiple topics that are specific to a single suggestion. So, I am posting this as a starting point and will add ideas for any contests here from now on. And hopefully it won't just be me posting : ) If this does exist somewhere already, let me know! Thanks!

I've seen it done before, but I don't know if it is legal or not.

I published 2 instructables and entered 2 contests (Paper challenge and Sew warm). Since then I see several new entries have been added, mine were not. When I try to enter the contests again, the page tells me I have no eligible instructables. I even deleted one of them and wrote it newly today but still I cannot enter the contest. Both entries fir the topics of the contests but when I click "Enter now", I cannot choose any of my instructables.

I tried to post this earlier but either something went went wrong or I was too blonde to find it, so if i is adouble plese ignoreand delete! My intention was to enter the Make it Glow contest with a better and more complete version of my forever Light. But after checking some entries I decided against it. There are a lot of totally unrelated entries in the contest and I fail to see the point in entering if obviously noone cares about what goes into a contest. For example a hovercraft, cordless screwdriver, fingerprint scanners, remote controlled robots, space doors or cmputer controlled flower pots..... I though the reason for a contest would be to have stuff in there that fits th contest.... I know some standards are not that high but isn't it a bit too low to allow totally unrelated entries into a contest??? Me, I simply don't see how a contest can be fair if the entry rules are already being completely ignored and obviously noone here cares to remove those entries... For that simple reason I won't support a contest with my entry.

When the contest are being judged, they are showing the recent instructables first, more people are more likely to choose those than the ones in the end or middle. I posted one of my instructables in the beginning of the contest, and I don't want someone else to win because they are the last instructable to be posted. It should be rated by the rating or views instead of automatically recent

I was wondering if this contest is just about building things or could I enter something along the lines of advice on ergonomic use of microscopes. I noticed on the contest page under Judges Prize -Lab Hacks it mentions "Do you have simple solutions to common challenges around the lab?..Help make life in lab easier and safer for everyone....". This would seem to fit but not sure since the contest seems to focus on building equiptment. What do you think?
