It may have been your use of somebody else's photo* that slowed things down.

It is part of the sites terms and conditions that you use your own images, or get proper permission from the owner of the images - if you keep breaking the T&C, it can cause issues with your membership.

Instructables is very good at getting an Ible up in the contests by the next business day so if you published it yesterday it should be visible in the contest by the end of business today April 6 San Francisco time.

Just to see the Ible your friends, followers, and family, should be able to view it shortly after you published it before it is visible in the contests.

I have entered a contest just an hour before closing and it was up in the contest by about noon the next day.
