Terms & Conditions

 

1. ELIGIBILITY 

To be eligible for the competition, you must identify as female and be in grades 3-12. Participants grant Code/Art permission to use image(s) of their competition entries with the participant’s name on an online Winner’s Page and in other online and print publications that Code/Art may elect to post/publish to encourage girls to code.

2. METHOD OF ENTRY

All submissions must be done online through the https://hub.code-art.com. Code/Art accepts no responsibility for any entries that are incomplete, illegible, corrupted or fail to reach Code/Art by the deadline date for any reason.

If entering the 3D Print category, you must make arrangements for drop-off or mailing of your item so that it is received by deadline date with a one week max. grace period (Feb. 6, 2020). All physical art will be available for pick-up after Code/Art Fest. While Code/Art will do its best to protect all submitted physical art from any damage, you will not hold Code/Art or any of its employees or volunteers liable for any damage that may occur to your submitted artwork while in its possession.

3. DATES & LIMITS ON ENTRIES

All submissions must be received by 11:59 EST on January 30, 2021.

There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit for each category; however, you may only win one prize per category. You will be awarded the highest prize to which you are eligible in each category. For example, if you enter two submissions for Animation and one submission gets the highest score from the judges and the other gets the third-highest, you will be awarded 1st Place in Animation, but the person with the fourth-highest score will be awarded 3rd Place. You can win multiple prizes in different categories; for example, if you enter one submission in Animation that gets the top score and one in Interactive that gets the second-highest score, you will receive 1st Place in Animation and 2nd Place in Interactive.

4. SELECTION

Self-Portrait (People’s Choice): The winner will be selected by popular vote in two rounds. Round One will take place online, where the 10 submissions with the most votes plus an additional 2 selected by Code/Art judges (based on judging rubric) will advance to Round Two.

Round Two will take place at the Code/Art Fest where each attendee will get to vote for one of the 12 finalists. The Self-portrait entry (from each age group) with the most votes on the day of Code/Art Fest will be awarded 1st Place in the People’s Choice during the Awards Ceremony portion.

Animation, Interactive, 3D Printed Art: The winners will be selected by a panel of judges made up of professionals with a background in Computer Science and/or the Arts using rubrics based on creativity, complexity, quality of code,  write-up and application of theme. Individual scores will not be shared with contestants.

5. Prizes

Self-Portrait: The top 12 finalists (for each age group) who attend the Awards Ceremony will get to keep the physical display of their coded self-portrait. The overall 1st place winner for each grade group will be announced and awarded an additional prize.

Animation, Interactive, 3D Printed Art: Prizes will be given in each category for 1st-3rd place for each grade group. Prizes are awarded with the goal to further inspire a love for coding; they may include a combination of the following — certificates good for a coding workshop, tech swag, books, and/or gift cards.

We highly encourage all entrants to attend the Awards Ceremony at Code/Art Fest. If a winner is not present, she will be notified by email and have up to 14 days to claim her prize. All award winners agree to take part in reasonable publicity and to the use of their names and photographs in such publicity. Reasonable publicity could include posting photos of the finalists online and doing a short interview and follow-up story on the winner after the event.

You must agree to these Terms & Conditions to compete.
