Reporting offensive material
Every entry page will have a button which allows for the reporting of offensive material. This report function can be used by anybody who considers the proposed artwork/colour scheme to be offensive or objectionable. Anyone who clicks the button will have to provide a motivation for their report. Reports are immediately submitted to the competition organisers. The jury will then decide whether or not the entry should be considered offensive. If the jury agrees with the report and considers the entry offensive, it will be disqualified from the competition.
