  • If a competition has less than 3 entries, we might cancel it (or we will pool it together with another, suitable competition)
  • If there are too many entries in a category, we preserve us the right to do a preselection based on the subjective impression by a to-be-formed jury
  • Entries that violate Swiss law, heavy pornography, racism, etc. are not allowed and will be rejected and deleted without further notice.
  • When releasing something, please make sure you are not violating any third party rights (copyrighted stuff, etc)
  • Every entry will be released at scene.org and various other FTP sites, unless it was preselected /disqualified, or the competition was canceled
