Edit: Aren't you supposed to get an email confirming that you've entered? Wondering if I made a typo in my email address?

Pretty sure that's the definition of Southwestern Europe, Although most consider those part as Western Europe as well.

By definition the countries of W-Europe are, if I'm not mistaken, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands and the United Kingdom(for now).

There's also the Western European and Others Group, which does include Greece, if they're going by that definition, you should be eligible.

Would be nice if they could clarify the exact eligible countries.
