To enter the competition, you will need to select “Click here to apply” and follow 4 steps:

STEP 1: Create a profile. All fields are mandatory. This step creates an application account for you.

STEP 2: Select the Competition that you wish to enter, i.e. Undergraduate or Open.

STEP 3: Create your Entry.

  • For the Undergraduate Competition you will submit an 800 to 1000-word essay response to the Challenge on the form provided OR alternatively upload a 3 to 10 minute video.
  • For the Open Competition you will complete an online application form containing 9 questions, each with an allowable number of words.

STEP 4: Save and Finalise your Entry.

  • You may SAVE progress on your application at any point and return to complete it up to the closing date of the competition.
  • If you want to continue work on an incomplete application, click My Account > My Applications > Incomplete to continue with it. You can only have 2 applications in total.
  • Once you SAVE & FINALISE your Application Form, the application is frozen so please ensure that you have worked the idea up fully before you make the final decision to select that option.  

Note: You may find it helpful to write your entry off line, e.g., in Microsoft Word, and paste the final reviewed content into the application form.
