The new recipe contest

As I am keenly interested in cooking, it seems strange that the contest is restricted within USA and Canada. In this age of globalisation, there can be no excuse for this decision, everything is within our reach. The concept of website is global where u r talking about contest. So what is restricting u? Money for posting prizes? U see u have to bear that, because your website is global, otherwise u must arrange the contest in your own locality and not on a website.

Hello Guest User, Thanks for
