Recipe Contests- what if i left out required info?

What should I do if I submitted several recipes to a competition but didn't include information required by the rules (ie. recipe category and number of servings). I had read it but when it came to entering I left it out because there were no specific fields for that information.

Will they ignore the recipes because I left out that info? Should I resubmit the same recipes and include the info?

  1. Odds are they will toss out your recipes because you didn't have the info required by the rules, even if they didn't leave specific fields for that info. That's the first hurdle to jump in a recipe contest. Maybe they set up their form wrong, maybe it was on purpose to winnow down the field. I'd resubmit.
