So is the current contest only open to US citizens? And is only one submission allowed?
Hi Pat, we did see these questions on the related post, we'll get back to you soon! We're just clarifying a couple of things on our end.
I’m sure Lindsay-Jean will report back but why wouldn’t everyone be able to participate? There’s no dollar value and the winner gets mentioned in an article no prize is awarded.
I’ll add to your question, Pat.
If it is determined only one submission is allowed, how do we delete entries?
It's a huge turnoff that in lieu of a prize and community voting & testing is replaced by social media postings as recognition.
I couldn't agree with you more. Not sure why that's supposed to inspire me to create recipes for this contest.
I fully agree, what’s the motivation? Many on the Hotline receive recognition for our comments we make when republished in articles.
Wait... there is no community voting? What did I miss?
Hi Bevi, there is still community voting! If you haven't seen it yet, you can find more details in this post: https://food52.com/blog...
So I've re-read the contest rules and now cannot find the "only one recipe per contest" statement but the only US residents can participate is still there. Will it stay? This contest ends in 5 days and there may be those who wish to enter but are in "limbo".
We're grateful to our eagle-eyed members for bringing up the points regarding US-only entries, prizes, and the single entry limitation. The single entry limitation and US-only entry restriction aren't new additions to our contest rules, but they were important ones for us to carefully address. We're happy to say that we've updated the rules to remove the single entry limitation.
We opted to forgo prizes for multiple reasons, one of the main ones being that we heard from our community that entering our contests was more about the participation than the prizes. We've looked into removing the US-only entry restriction, but have discovered some potential legal issues, so we need to stick with that for now. Thanks for your understanding and patience as we get back into the groove of contests. And for our international F52ers, we'd love to see you get involved in our community in other ways, from engaging with other members on the Hotline, to sending story ideas to [email protected] (read more on that process here: https://food52.com/blog...), to joining our Facebook clubs (find the Cookbook Club here: https://www.facebook.com... and the Baking Club here: https://www.facebook.com...). We look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks for the clarification Lindsay-Jean. Hopefully our out of country friends will be able to join the contests soon..
