Questions

Video Content

  1. Can I have music? Sure. Just be sure it doesn't overpower the information.
  2. Do I need a patent? No.
  3. Should I be on camera? Up to you! You can convey your idea any way you want, as long as it's effective.
  4. Can I enter with a partner? The entry must belong to one person, but you can collaborate with whomever you want (as long as you have their permission).
  5. Can I ENTER MORE THAN ONE BIG IDEA? Sure. Each idea must have its own entry form and video.
  6. Should I make the video really creative or fancy? Creativity of the presentation is not a factor in judging. We're looking for innovative ideas, communicated clearly.
