Terms of use

The following are the terms and conditions of entry to the 2020 The Cleanie Awards. By submitting entries to the competition you agree that you have read and agree to abide by the terms and conditions below.

Entry fees

Entry fees are listed on the awards website. Entry fees must be paid before entries will be submitted to judges for review. You may withdraw one or more entries from the competition and receive a refund of entries fees paid for those entries through July 30, 2020. After that date, entries may still be withdrawn, but no refunds will be issued. If for extraordinary circumstances after July 30, 2020 we must submit your entries for judging before entry fees are paid, your entries will be non-revokable and entry fees will be payable.

Maintenance of your entry account information

Your organization’s entry-submission account on The Cleanie Awards website, through which your entries are submitted, will contain the contact information for your point of contact. Your organization is responsible for keeping this information updated.

Final decision

In the event of a dispute as to the category in which an entry(s) will be judged, the decision of The Cleanies Awards staff will prevail. Judges may recommend that an entry be switched to a different category, and at their discretion The Cleanie Awards staff may change an entry’s category. Any offline materials submitted as part of your entries will not be returned.
