General rules for all compos:

  • All Entries must be delivered over the party-net. Some compos require physical mediums, but such entries must still be registered on the party-net and delivered physically to the compo crew.
  • All competitions have a "no-go" limit. If there are too few submissions in one competition,the competition will be combined with another competition.
  • If an entry requires user interaction, let the compocrew know by writing it in the orga-info-field on the online contribution-submission-form.
  • Media containing compoentries will not be returned by default. If you really need the media back, contact the compo-crew.
  • Deadlines are not very flexible. Due to a lot of problems when showing the compos at previous KGs we now need to be strict with the deadlines. If you want the compos to run smooth you got to give us some time to prepare, it's as simple as that.
  • An entry can only participate in one compo.
  • If you have an entry for a platform we don't accept by default, contact the compo-crew and we'll try to arrange something. Contact information can be found on the contact page.
  • The compocrew reserve the right to disqualify entries that are too unserious, boring, bad, disgusting or with racist, pornographic, violent, disturbing or otherwise illegal content. In fact the compocrew reserve the right to disqualify entries for any reason they find reasonable.
  • As always, we reserve the right to change any rule at any time. For any reason. Even this rule if we feel like it.

Remote submissions

  • We do accept submissions over e-mail, but in order to get a prize, you'll need a representative at the party-place. We won't send any prizes by snailmail.
  • Please contact the compo-crew as soon as possible if you plan to have a remote entry. Contact information can be found on the contact page.
  • As said, let us know of your submission before the party starts - and be ready to deliver the final entry before saturday 11th of November 12:00 CET.
