Te contest is open to residents of 24 countries, including the U.K., U.S., Canada, Germany, Japan, Argentina, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, India, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malaysia, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and China.
