Contest: can i join? Answered

Hi, i have this question because in the official rules of every contest there is a list of elegible countries but Italy is not mentioned. My question is: Can Italians join a contest?


I am from the UK but live in Italy and was surprised to see there is a US embargo on Italy ????!! Hence I can't enter the contests?? Since when has there been an embargo?

Hey, You can find all the information about entering our contests internationally here

We can only currently legally accept send prizes to the following countries: US, UK, Australia, Belgium, Canada (excluding Quebec), China, Colombia, Denmark, Germany, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, and Switzerland.

But even if Italians could enter the contests (sigh....), il Papa could still be rejected, since his residency is the Vatican, which is kind of a separate nation.

Maybe the prize could be sent to one of the Swiss guards.

Thank you for the advices! :)

You can get around this rule by collaborating with a member who lives in a legitimate country. If you win, give their details, then they can pass your share of the prize on to you.
