entering the contest Answered

Hi, I would like to enter the contest https://www.instructables.com/contest/huntergatherer/ with my instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Improvised-fishing-equipment-tested/ but I can not. I entered only 1 contest with this instructables and I have read that according to rules I can enter 3 contests with 1 instructable. I would also like to ask why I can not enter contests with some older instructables that are also used only once.

The problem is the publish date:

Instructables must be published between Aug 25, 2014 and Oct 6, 2014 (11:59pm PT) to be eligible.

Thank you for the quick response, but is there some solution for that problem?

Part of the purpose of contests is to encourage new content on the site. Also, contest sponsors often use entries elsewhere, and don't want to be sharing stuff that's been in the public domain for a while.

If contests are a big motivator for you, you need to keep an eye on this topic, which lists all the confirmed up-coming contests:
