Participating items and selection process

Participating items can be finished items or protocols.  For competition categories, such as fashionCLUE, participants may, when necessary, provide graphics with no more than 500 English words to show how their solutions work.


Fashion costs are considered to be an open secret.  Provision of garment cost is recommended, but not compulsory.

Experience tells that there is a higher chance for applicants to win if they were able to come and present their participating items or protocols in person or by video conferencing, when invited.  Do reserve such important dates for presentation.
