Instructable not selected for contest Answered

I recently published an instructable(https://www.instructables.com/id/ArrDrownHo-Easily-convert-AVR-to-Arduino-compat/) and added it to the Kit contest and Arduino contest while publishing. The instructable was only visible on my 'you' page and was missing from the technology or recent sections. I checked earlier questions and learned about filters. So waited patiently. After 3-4 days(2 were weekend), it became visible.

But it didn't get selected for any of the contest. The Kit contest is now past the period of taking submissions. I'm not sure if it's the mischief caused by the filters or it got rejected. The mail instructed that if I don't hear back in 1-2 business days, I should consider it rejected. Should I add to Arduino contest again or wait?

Did you get the "Received" emails for both contests?

Yep. I received the 'Instructable contest entry received' mail for both the moment I published it.

In that case, if you don't want to wait another couple of days, drop an email to service@instructables.com, including the URLs of the projects in question.

I've dropped them a mail. My only concern is that I'm losing out on votes while my Instructable is popular. Thanks for your kind help. :-)
