Is there anyway I can back out on a contest? Answered

I accidentally entered a contest that doesn't have nothing to do with my project, how can I back out? Thanks.


If you go to the contest page for that contest (contests tab on the homepage) then click on how to enter, it should list all ibles eligible for the contest and ones that are entered. I think if you click on the REMOVE link next to your entry that might do it. Give it a shot.

You can't. You are doomed to win a valuable prize.

(Don't worry, if your project was accepted for the contest, then the editor concerned thinks your project makes a valid entry.)

Caitlinsdad gave the method which should work. If it doesn't, you can send an e-mail to Instructables support <service@instructables.com> and let them know what happened (include the URL of your I'ble).

If all else fails, the contest moderators will notice that it's unrelated and will bump it out for you.
