Rude, defamatory, racist or offensive material will be disqualified and will not appear on the website. The decision of what is considered rude and/or offensive material will be at the discretion of the judging panel and competition organisers.
  • Entries which are in breach of Copyright laws and guidelines contained within YouTube's or Vimeo's Terms and Conditions will be disqualified, e.g. videos containing commercial music without licensing approval by the artist or the artists distributer or label.
