It is a real shame... I had two great ideas (and a lot more), I don't know if I should enter them...

Please go ahead and enter them! As you know, winning the Halloween contest isn't the only reason to put a project in. An awesome project could be included in our special International Halloween spot in the newsletter, get picked up by the big blogs/magazines, or even show up in the next Instructables Book. We try to keep the contests as wide-open as possible, but in cases where we have to be more restrictive we still try to do the best we can for our international members.

Ok, i know you have made several comments about this already, so to clarify, Im in the uk, am i right in saying that, if i enter the contest, i could still 'win' i just wouldn't be able to take receipt of the prize? i would essentially only be entering for the pride of winning? ALSO if i was to win, would i be able to nominate one of my friends in america to keep the prize instead?

You can always pick up a collaborator. Have a friend in the US sign on as a collaborator, and then I'm pretty sure that would fix the problem. If you could trust your friend to send you the prizes!

Okay, I will enter one of my idea, my other one is costly and difficult to build, so I will leave that out... Also, is this going to be like that for all the contests in the future? Or is it just this one?

You are so right. I mean seriously the entire USA doesnt know that there is a world beyond there borders. Maybe 10% know that there is, but all of them believe that the rest of the world is full of developing countries and have no money.

I think the real issue is that someone needs to make an instructable on how to become an American citizen. Then the problem would be solved.

Wouldn't a US Collaborator fix the problem? If you can trust the collaborator that is. It's easy to add a collaborator.

Perhaps non-US winners could get the parts of their prize that CAN be shipped to their country. Or a T-shirt. That would be enough for me.

This news of a USA contest only is disappointing. I just wanted to point out that image you are using on the home page to promote Halloween Costumes is mine - made by a Canadian. ugh.

We're sorry this one had to be US-only; I'd encourage you to go ahead and enter your Halloween projects, as we'll be trying to do right by our non-US members by getting you some extra attention for your projects. Most of our contests are international, and we work hard to keep it that way.

Oh don't worry, I will definitely still enter - there's no way I wouldn't. It just feels weird to suddenly be excluded for geography. But that's ok, I love you all anyways.

okay let me put this in simple terms
the staff was all like lets have a Halloween contest
and the sponsors were like okay!
and then the staff were like looking a mailing prices
and then they were like oh no! look at these oversea prices
and then they were like only in USA people can join the contest
then =SMART= was all like oh no!
then he was all like lets post a topic
and then you were all like, I don't get it
and then I got all explainy-like
