FAQ - Corridor Reuse Design Challenge

This list will continue to develop during the course of the competition. FAQs will be added to and answered as new questions arise.


In an effort to keep the judging process very fair our judges will not actually know if the submissions they are reviewing were completed by teams or by an individual. Only one person from each team needs to send the final submission to competitions@scout-ltd.com. You may provide the email addresses of all team members in the body of your email. The competition organizer will be the only one to see this information. If your submission is selected as a winner you will receive an email to the same address you sent your submission with. At this point we will ask for more information about the participant or the team members.

How do I mention we are submitting as a team?
