I won't see the results of my campaign until after the deadline, should I still enter?

In short, yes.

A large proportion of the criteria is to see the makings of the campaign and all the behind-the-scenes work it takes to launch. Make sure to double-check the weight of marks given in the Results section and instead talk about your projections and include any feedback/tester comments that would indicate your projected results.

What time frame must the campaign cover?

Between July 2021 and September 2022.

If your campaign ran outside of this time frame, the majority of the campaign must fall in between these months.

Is there a word limit?

Each section of the entry form has a word count of 400 words. Please keep your information concise and relevant.

What date do entries close?

The deadline is end of September 2022

We accept bribery in the form of chocolate for any further extensions.

Judging

How does the judging process work for each round?

Judging, insofar as possible, will be remote. Two judges will judge each application and the final score will be the average of the two marks. In the case that the average score is the same, a 3rd independent judge will review the top 3 entries.

When are entries judged?

The judging commences October 2022 regardless of any extensions given.
