Hi, I am new to this community and was really hoping to get involved in the contests. But in the recent aiy contest, you state:
"Entrants who reside in the following countries are not eligible for participation: Brazil, Colombia, Russia, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Spain, Hong Kong, Singapore, North Korea, South Korea, Cuba, Thailand, Turkey, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, India, Japan, Mexico, Vietnam, The Philippines."
which makes me ineligible for the contest.

This is so disappointing and we do not understand why we cant participate. If you want contestants only from USA or something like that, why are you seeking global participation but restricting few countries? Care to explain?

Sorry you're disappointed Ken, but specific countries are excluded due to certain legal requirements such as registrations, authorizations, general restrictions imposed by governments that the contest sponsor cannot fulfil. The exclusions differ from contest to contest so be sure to check the terms of the next one!

Hi, Is it possible for me to withdraw my entrance to the competition? I (stupidly) did not read the Term and Conditions before entering and have realized I'm not of the minimum age (it's 18, I'm 15). I've tried deleting my Electromaker account but it just returns " Error 500. Something went wrong from our end, sorry!" I have also emailed the team twice and tweeted at them once but I have had no response. Can anyone help?
