To enter and participate in the Challenge, you must fully complete the Challenge submission
form on the Challenge page available at
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.

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

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

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
