Creative compos

The creative competitions at The Gathering is your chance to show your creation to a huge audience, get instant feedback from an inspired crowd, and win huge prizes and awards.

The rules for the Creative competitions have now been published. The competitions have one set of general rules that apply to all compos, and a set of individual rules for each competition.

The rules specify several things, mainly which formats are permitted, and what kind of content we want to see in the competition entries. The rules also explain how the competitions are executed.

If you plan to participate in a competition, you need to make sure that your entry follows the rules. Every year we have to disqualify some entries because they don't follow the rules properly, and often it's because of some minor details that could easily have been fixed.

We try to notify participants in case there is a problem with their entries, so that they'll have a chance to correct it. However, this is not always possible, and in such cases we have to disqualify the entry. So please make sure this doesn't happen to you, and read the rules thoroughly before submitting.

However, don't be scared if the rules seem overly formal. The most important thing is that you show us something creative. We're looking forward to seeing YOUR entry!
