my instructable:
https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Pocket-Sized-Anti-Theft-Alarm-/
if you think its good  vote for me.

my doubts about the competition
-how do i find the  how many people have voted for me?
-do your instructable have to be popular or have many views to win the competition?
-if you win the competition do you have to pay money for claiming the prize or for shipping of the prize?

i would like to receive constructive criticism from everybody about my projects as this is one of my first few instructables and please comment about my instructable  . Thank you

1. You can't.

2. Pretty much - views can translate into votes.

3. It depends. You won't have to pay shipping, but you may have to pay import duty.

A tax you pay to your own government to be allowed to import an item of value.

It depends what you are importing, from where.

See the link I gave you, then contact your own Customs and Excise office for more details.
