Can I submit multiple entries?
There is no maximum number of entries you can submit. In other words, you can upload as many different entries or distinct variations of an entry as you would like.
Why does my upload take so long to appear on the site?
We have the most blazing fast servers available and efficient software to get files onto the site fast! However, there is also a stringent review process that each entry must go through to ensure integrity of the client’s brand, before entries are released to the public site.
What do I do if my upload did not meet the specs?
If you submit a file that doesn’t meet the specs it’s unlikely that it will pass the review process. Additionally, entries that do not meet the specs will not be eligible to win.
Who owns my submission once I upload it?
For this Design Challenge, all submissions will be owned 100% by Heineken USA. Per our Terms and Conditions, You agree that, by submitting and/or uploading a design into the Challenge, you are unconditionally and irrevocably transferring to HUSA 100% ownership of each submitted design , and any elements contained therein (“Design”). You are agreeing to forego any rights to the Design including, without limitation, the rights to reproduce, distribute, publicly perform and display, electronically transmit, modify, edit and make derivative works thereof. However, You may use Design in portfolios as a representation of work performed.
HUSA will pay the outlined prize money for all winning Designs. For non-winning Designs, should HUSA decide to use these Designs for commercial purpose, You will be notified and compensated in the amount of $500 prior to use.
How/when are winners chosen?
