It looks like there were issues with the dates on the backend - give it another try, and let me know if it doesn't go in!

Hey Khaleel,

Are you from the US ? This contest, unlike other contests, is only open for entrants who are citizens of, or are residing in the United States.. Perhaps that could be the problem ?

Best of Luck !

(They only check where you live if you win something, and, even then, there are ways around these things.)

Oh I see.. Haha may I know how to get around that restriction? Because I'm not from the US but I'd like to submit an entry myself ( Just getting started with writing instructables)

The vast majority of contests allow many more countries to enter, but, if you still find yourself in the wrong country, all you need is a friend or family member in a legitimate country. When (if) you win, just give your friend's address as the address to which the prize is shipped, then arrange for it to be shipped to you at your own expense.

Note: This is not official site advice.

You're right, that should have been accepted.

Drop an email to service@instructables.com and ask them to fix it. Make sure you include the URL of the project, and send your email from the address associated with your account.
