I am competing in the Creative Clock category. Must I direct the team towards the conceptual solution related to a clock?

The names were chosen for their conceptual relation to the number 12, corresponding to the number of sectors in the creative industry.

Conceptual solutions can be implemented as blueprints, presentations, media plan, dance, souvenir, drawing, exhibition, video presentation, stage performance, photographs, story, music, graphic novel, film, map, fashion items, recipes, communication plan, visual design, posters, plays or any other forms chosen by the competing team.

Who is responsible for financing the accommodation and travel costs for the participation in the Millennial Competition?

The Competition Book of Regulations (Article 14) states that the Organizer shoulders the costs having to do with the organization of the Competition and is not able to cover other costs. No participation fee is charged and no financial gain made by the Organizer. The Competition aims instead to encourage volunteering in the academic community. The Organizer will provide the competitionant with a space for informal gathering and socialization, where they can take their meal, beverages and refreshments. The detail will be set out in the schedule following the submission of the conceptual solutions.
