Contest Q & A

Q: I submitted my video two weeks ago, why isn't it on YouTube yet?

A: All videos must be reviewed by our General Counsels Office (GCO) before being uploaded to YouTube. If there are any issues that come from GCO, you will be emailed and asked to correct those problems. Additionally, inclusion on YouTube has nothing to do with the judging process. All videos will be posted, and any delay will not impact your winning in any way.

Q: When will we hear if we won?

A: Now that the contest is over, the judges will begin reviewing and voting on all submissions. No winners will be announced until the end of January at the earliest.

Q: I'm worried you never received my submission, is there a way we can check if you did?

A: If you are concerned your submission was not received, please email and we will confirm that it has been uploaded.
