Our competition is based on skill and skill alone. All entries are judged based on the merits of each individual work. The top scoring first round entries move on to a second round of judging. Top scoring second round entries move onto a final round of judging from which our grand prize winner and top two finalists are selected. Odds of winning grand prize are less than 1%. If you would like to request a fee waiver please do so via email. We only award prizes as stipulated for a given contest run: typically they come in the form of consultations with industry professionals for educational purposes with our grand prize winner receiving three, and top two finalists receiving one each and all other semi-finalists and quarter finalists only receiving recognition like in most other contests. No other prizes are stipulated or awarded.

You are solely responsible for creating backup copies of your Submitted Materials if you desire. Under no circumstances will we be liable for any inaccuracy or defect in any Submitted Materials.
