Hi,I am disappointed to see that contest is limited for other countries. I was waiting so long for some kind of contest just to see that now I can not participate.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the PSoC 5 Design Challenge. We would love to have included the entire design community in the contest.
Unfortunately, legal issues forced us to restrict the contest to the US, Canada, Germany and the UK. We hope to do more contests in the future and are working with our legal team to include more regions in these contests.
There are so many many people in India, students and engineers who are wanting to participate in this contest. Its sad to hear that there are some legal issues which is prohibiting them from participating.
Hello Sir Bobby,
How about Asean countries??
I think that is not an excuse becuase you are also selling your products in these countries.
So what is the purpose after all?
I can't comment on the specifics (only because I'm not part of our legal team, and don't know them) but each country has very different rules about what can and can't be done for contest prizes, eligibility, specific context for rules, etc.
Basically, we couldn't do one big design contest, instead we would have to have done several small design contests at the same time (all with different winners). We do plan on running additional design contests in the near future for countries that couldn't participate this time around.
