We recognize the need for confidentiality, permission, etc., and will not display or comment on any entries without prior permission from the entrant. However, unless otherwise requested in writing by the entrant, the client company will be included in the winner’s list.
How And When Do We Get Results?
All winners will be announced and results will be posted to your My Account no later than six weeks after the deadline. Since entries are judged against a standard of excellence and not each other, most results will be posted before the final date. An email will automatically be sent when results are posted to your My Account.
Why Do We Have To Pay For Trophies?
There is no obligation to purchase a trophy. Each winning entry is eligible for a free certificate. Unlike most competitions, Viddy entrants do not subsidize awards for the winners. Instead of charging up to several hundred dollars per entry, competition organizers decided to keep entry fees at a fraction of that cost and let the winners buy their own awards if they so choose. The result is more affordable entry fees and a higher quality award that is not a trinket, but a piece of art that anyone would be proud to display and give to a client.
