Entries must be received during the Entry Period. Your entry is deemed to be received only when received by the Promoter’s database. The Promoter is not liable for any problems with communications networks. You are responsible for your own costs associated with entering. If you enter using automatically generated systems or multiple aliases you may be disqualified.
The Promoter may use (or allow others to use) high-level details about your entry (e.g. name of project, your name, your Organisation's/school's/tertiary institution's/joint entrants name, your website, your logo, 60 second video explaining the solution) to publicise this Promotion. These rights are perpetual, royalty free, world-wide, irrevocable and transferable. The Promoter may also decide not to publish details of a entry, to cease publication of details of a entry, or to publish edited details of a entry. Unless your consent is obtained, the Promoter will not publish full details of an entry. All judges, staff of the Promoter and volunteers assisting with the Promotion will be required to enter confidentiality agreements with the Promoter (if not already subject to suitable confidentiality terms) in which they undertake to keep details of all entries confidential (subject to these Terms and Conditions and standard "carve-outs" from that type of agreement).
You warrant that your entry does not breach any third party rights (for example, intellectual property rights) and its use by the Promoter or any other person will not breach any law (for example, it is not defamatory, in contempt of court or in breach of any privacy law). Your entry must not be obscene, offensive, malicious, discriminatory, indecent or (in the Promoter's opinion) otherwise objectionable or inappropriate (for example it must not include nudity or language the Promoter deems offensive).
If there is any dispute regarding an entry, including in relation to the ownership, originality and rights of an Innovation, the Promoter will determine in its absolute discretion whether to allow the entry to continue in the Promotion and judging process, and who will be deemed as the entrant for the purpose of that entry.
If your entry includes any photograph or video, you must not include any other person in your photograph/video unless they have consented to you submitting it in this Promotion. You must not include any person in your photograph/video who is under the age of 18 years unless you have their parent’s or guardian’s consent and, if the person is aged 13 or above, that person's consent.
You must ensure your entry does not contain any virus, malware or other malicious or inappropriate computer code or material.
Entry into this competition will not affect the ownership of any IP in relation to any Innovation. Entrants are responsible for taking any steps they consider necessary or appropriate to protect their IP, such as lodging patent applications. While the Promoter will take steps to preserve the confidentiality of entries (as set out in clause 29), the Promoter is not responsible for any loss of rights in relation to IP (including loss of the ability to obtain a patent) that may occur in connection with an entry being lodged or the entry being dealt with in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. Entrants warrant that they have all necessary IP rights and permissions in order to enter this Promotion.
Any prizes and Benefits for Entrants are subject to any additional conditions imposed by the Promoter or prize/benefit supplier, including how and when the prize/ Benefit must be used. In the case of a dispute as to which individual will be provided with any Benefit/s or awarded a prize, the Promoter will determine the relevant individual or entity in its absolute discretion.
Prizes and Benefits for Entrants cannot be transferred or exchanged nor (except where cash is specified) redeemed for cash. Without limiting any other term of these Terms and Conditions, all prizes and Benefits (and elements of prizes and Benefits) must be taken as and when specified, or will be forfeited with no replacement. You agree that if a prize or Benefit (or element of a prize or Benefit) is unavailable for any reason the Promoter may provide another item of equal or higher value.
All entrants, winners and merit recipients must take part in all publicity, photography and other promotional activity as the Promoter requires, without any compensation. All such persons consent to the Promoter using their names and images in any promotional or advertising activity.
If you or your entry or your Innovation are deemed by the Promoter to breach these Terms and Conditions, your entry (or at the Promoter's discretion, all of your entries) may be discarded. The Promoter may, at any time, require you to produce documentation to establish to the Promoter's satisfaction the validity of your entries and the information contained within (including documentation establishing your identity and place of employment). Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not waive those rights.
You must not:
(a)tamper with the entry or judging process;
(b)engage in any conduct that may jeopardise the fair and proper conduct of the Promotion or the iAwards;
(c)act in a disruptive, annoying, threatening, abusive or harassing manner;
(d)do anything that may diminish the good name or reputation of the Promoter or any of its related entities or of the agencies or companies associated with this Promotion or the iAwards;
(e)breach any law; or
(f)behave in a way that is otherwise inappropriate.
Whilst attending an iAwards event, if you (or your companions, if applicable), in the opinion of the Promoter, are intoxicated, under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, behave aggressively or offensively, or behave in a manner which may diminish the good name or reputation of the Promoter or any of its related entities or the agencies or companies associated with this Promotion, is contrary to law or is otherwise inappropriate, the Promoter may invalidate your entry and/or restrict you (and your companions) from participating further in the iAwards, at its discretion. The Promoter may disqualify all entries from, and prohibit further participation in this Promotion by, you or any or all of your companion/s if any of them breaches these conditions, whether or not legally bound by them.
The Promoter is not liable for entries, claims or correspondence that are misplaced, misdirected, delayed, lost, incomplete, illegible or incorrectly submitted.
If this Promotion or any of the iAwards events cannot run as planned for any reason beyond the Promoter's control, for example due to software, hardware or communications issues, unauthorised intervention, tampering, fraud or technical failure, the Promoter may end, change, suspend or cancel the Promotion/iAwards or disqualify affected entries/entrants.
The Promoter is not responsible for any tax implications arising from any person or entity winning a prize or receiving a Benefit for Entrants. You should seek independent financial advice. If for GST purposes this Promotion results in any supply being made for non-monetary consideration, you must follow the Australian Taxation Office’s stated view that where the parties are at arm’s length, goods and services exchanged are of equal GST inclusive market values.
