I would rather have entries and trust that the item shown was made by the entrant than totally adhere to the rules set for in former contests. I copied previous rules to speed up getting the contest posted. Send it in!

Still time to enter the Advanced Casting Contest where all the cool people hang out. Bottle stoppers, Hybrids, Steampunk and other cast items if you think it is advanced.

Question Advanced Casting

If the end date for the Advanced Casting is and I quote "Feb 20th 2018" hasn't the competition already ended?

That is the date you have to get your entry in so the competition has not even started.
