I hope there are no stupid restrictions like "You may participate no more than X times" or "you should be under Y to be eligible".

    As far as I see the japanese website, This contest opens to only university students. But it seems that there isn't age limit or the number of times limit.

Lol, registration form is terrible. It took me ages to fill it and I was thinking that question about size of my mother's shoes may pop up at any moment.
