For attendance purposes, these are the requirements:
A. Overall Prizes
In order to be awarded a Semi-finalist prize, advance to the live demonstration area and accept related prizes, potential winners must be able to travel to and remain at Disrupt SF Sep. 5-7, 2018 at their own cost and they must notify the administrator before the required deadline if they will attend.
If a potential winner cannot attend, the prize will be offered to the next highest scoring team and the potential winner forfeits the prize and the potential to win additional prizes.
B. Sponsored Prizes
Prize Sponsors will select the winner of the prize they sponsor during the Online Judging Period. These winners are not required to travel in order to claim the prizes.
So to claim the semi-finalist ticket to Disrupt, you must be able to travel. To win the Grand Prize, you also must be able to travel. To win sponsor prizes, you do NOT need to travel. The winners will be announced on the site on September 7th. If we are able to announce the other prizes earlier, we definitely will let ya know!
