I’ve heard from numerous people over the years that have won, then lost, a contest.

It’s all about the rules.  Read them.  They often have riders in them stipulating simple things such as you must be under a certain age.  Or live in a certain province.  Or only enter once.

I haven’t ever lost a contest due to not reading the rules.  But it happens, so get reading!
