SPARK CONCEPT & STUDENT SCHEDULE

Because concept design entries are often student work, Spark Concept events are timed to facilitate entries from the main school semesters. That means we have a set of deadlines for both Spring and Fall semesters.

Pro-level entrants may enter at any time, Spring or Fall. For the Concept Pro schedule, scroll down this page, to below the student schedules.

Spring entries will be gathered from January until June 16, and then will go into the Phase 1, finalist judging in late July. Fall semester entries begin August 5 and deadline in early November, when Fall Finalists are selected. Following that, all Spring and Fall Finalists are then judged together in the Phase 2 live judging.
