Entries must be received by the ET Foundation® by the deadline date noted on the ET Foundation Design Competition website and in the Call for Entries. Submission of an entry acknowledges the right of the ET Foundation to use it for exhibition and publication. All entries received shall become the property of The ET Foundation. However, entrants may request that their entries be returned at the conclusion of the Competition at their own expense. The ET Foundation is not responsible for any lost, late, or damaged entries. Winners shall be selected by a panel of independent judges chosen by the ET Foundation. If any category yields no entries deemed by the judges to adequately address the competition criteria, a prize will not be awarded in that category.
Winners will be announced via a news release posted to the AEC website and disseminated to the media. All taxes due on cash awards are the winner's responsibility. Entry into the Competition constitutes permission to use the entrant's design and his, her, or its name, likeness, and affiliation for promotional purposes without further compensation.
Any person signing the application on behalf of a company, firm, or organizational entity represents and warrants that he or she has authority to enter the Competition on the company's behalf and bind the company to any and all Competition rules. All entrants agree to be bound by any and all additional rules established by the ET Foundation for the Competition.
