Besides:

"The Contest is open to individuals who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or the recognized legal age of adulthood in their respective jurisdiction (when that age is higher than 18) and who are residents of the U.S., France, Germany, the United Kingdom, or Canada (except Quebec)"

Thanks Avid and whatever sponsor for consideration on all those that DONT live in those countries, great move :rolleyes:

A lot of contests that have prizes Have to restrict areas based on legal reasons, for the love of god, do not think they are singling people out, as I am sure they would lvoe for people all over the world to partake and make cool stuff, but the legal headaches when prizes are involved factors in heavily.
