REQUIRED.

To enter and participate in the Challenge, you must fully complete the Challenge submission

and submit the required entry submissions as provided on the Challenge page and in these

Official Rules. You may enter as an individual or as part of a Team (as defined below). Teams

may have no more than 5 members. By submitting your entry, you are agreeing to these

Official Rules on behalf of yourself and all Team members, and by participating all Team

members agree to the Official Rules as a participating entrant. A Team will collectively also be

deemed an entrant. Your entry submission information must include (i) your name and email

address, and (ii) your idea name and, if applicable, the names of all Team members. Your initial

entry must also contain a short written presentation of your idea. Finalists and winners are

required to deliver the additional submissions described below. All requested entry information

must be provided.

For a group of individuals to enter the contest (a “Team”), the Team must agree to and

designate one person as the agent of the Team to submit the entry and to accept the prize on

behalf of the Team. Each individual on a Team must agree to these Official Rules. You may

not make changes to your Team once registered to participate. By submitting an entry, the

submitter represents that all Team members have read and agreed to these Official Rules.

Any attempt by any participant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using

multiple/different email or addresses, accounts, identities, or any other methods will void that

participant's entries and that participant may be disqualified. In the event of a dispute as to any

entrant, the authorized account holder of the email address associated with the entry will be

deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an

email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization

responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted

address. A potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account

holder. In the event of an ongoing dispute as to any entrant, Sponsor has the right to make

determination as to entrant(s) in its sole discretion.

All entries must meet the following criteria:


• Each entry must include a short, written description (e.g., write-up, PowerPoint slides)

that presents the entry’s idea(s) or “pitch” to create the art project that provides social

commentary on the subject of “fake news.”

• Entries must be original, exclusively created and owned by entrant, and the entrant must

have all rights necessary to submit the entry.

• Entries may not contain likenesses of any individuals who are under 18 years of age or

who have not provided their authorization. By submitting likeness of any individual under the

age of majority in their jurisdiction of residence, you represent that you have received

permission from such minor’s parent or legal guardian to include such minor’s image.

• Entries may not contain material that is obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening,

pornographic, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a

criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or violate any law. Entries must be appropriate for

viewing by the general public; appropriateness will be determined by Sponsor.

• Entries must be in English.

Sponsor reserves the right to reject any entry for any reason.

3. Challenge​ ​Period.​ ​ This Challenge begins at 12:01 am PT on December 5, 2017 and

pm on January 10, 2018. Finalists invited to submit a video must submit the video due 11:59 pm

on January 15th. Finalists selected as winners must deliver their winning project (the actual

time-keeping device for the Challenge. All entries must be received during the dates and times

specified in the Challenge Period.

4. Eligibility.​ ​ In order to be eligible, participants must be at least the age of majority in

their jurisdiction of residence. Employees of Sponsor and its parent and affiliate companies as

well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members

of each such employee are not eligible. Before participating in the Challenge, you should also

consider whether you or your team members have any conflicting obligations that prevent

participation. If an entrant is an employee of a corporation, government or an academic

institution, or enrolled as a student, it is his or her sole responsibility to review, understand and

abide by his or her employer’s, or academic institution’s policies regarding eligibility to

participate in the Challenge. If an entrant is found to be in violation of his or her employer’s or

academic institution’s policies, then he or she will be, and the Team may be, disqualified from

participating in the Challenge and from being awarded or retaining any prize. Sponsor disclaims

any and all liability or responsibility for disputes arising between an employee or student and his

or her employer or academic institution related to the Challenge.

5. Finalists​ ​and​ ​Winners.​ Before selecting the winners, 10 “finalists” will be named on or

about January 15, 2018. Finalists will then create a 3-5 minute “pitch” video supporting their

entry idea. From the 10 finalists, winners will be selected to fully develop and create their

winning idea for public installation and showing, potentially at The Tech Museum of Innovation

on or about May 17, 2018. Dates and places of public showing may be changed and are in the

sole discretion of Sponsor. Sponsor also has the right to cancel public showing(s).

There will be 5 winners selected: First Place (1), Runners-Up (2), and Honorable Mention (2).

Winners will be announced by on or about February 7, 2018. The overall “best” entries will be

selected as winners. Judging will be done by Sponsor or its designees, who shall have sole

discretion in determining winners based on the following equally weighted criteria:

Relevance: Clearly shows or targets the subject of fake news or clearly demonstrates the

proliferation of fake news. Misinformation, filter bubbles and echo chambers should be used as

the catalyst for the project pitch.

Creativity: Project demonstrates an innovative approach to the subject of fake news and should

make people look at this topic in a new way.

Feasibility: Your project must contain a feasible timeline based on the person or team.

Portfolio: The portfolio of previous work submitted should highlight your best work.

6. Prizes.

1st Place Winner (One): USD$15,000

Runners-Up Winners (Two): USD$7,500

Prizes will be delivered shortly after winners are announced on or about February 7, 2018 to

enable winners to use prize money to help fund their project final submission. Each of the 5

winners may have their project displayed at The Tech Museum of Innovation starting on or

around May 17, 2018.

The aggregate retail value of all the prize(s) is approximately USD$40,000. Prizes will be split

evenly among a Team’s members. Sponsor reserves the right to award prize to a Team’s

agent, and it will be Team agent’s responsibility to divide the prize among Team members. No

substitution, assignment or transfer of the prize is permitted, except by Sponsor, who has the

right to substitute a prize with another of comparable or greater value. Winner is responsible for

all taxes and fees associated with the receipt and/or use of the prize, and winner may be

required to provide tax information prior to receiving the prize. Each Team member agrees to

self-report to applicable taxing authorities, as may be required by applicable laws.

Prize monies should be retained by individuals only in conformity with any applicable policies of

his or her employers, academic institutions, or government regarding participation in and receipt

of promotional consideration relating to the Challenge and receipt and retention of prize. If a

government, employer’s or school’s policies are applicable, it is the entrant’s sole and ultimate

responsibility, in consultation with his or her government, employer or school, to determine how

and if prize will be retained and/or distributed and accounted for and we assume no

responsibility for the decisions made by such government, employers or schools regarding this

issue.
